SLA2006: Be modular

This will also posted on the SLA conference blog.

In a session this afternoon about the National Digital Newspaper Program, the speaker talked about building a modular systems using open source software. The content -- stored in standard formats -- will be maintained and will be stable. The system will be built using open source software and in modules. Why modules? Since this is a new system -- a new idea -- if a module doesn't work correctly, it can easily be replaced. If a module needs to be updated, that work can be done without replacing the entire system. Smart.

Information on the National Digital Newspaper Program is online here.
