The BBC has been a pillar of British entertainment for many years, but it's now also known across the world as a leading online news source. The Register took a deep look into how BBC News was created, from initial brainstorming to creating a content management system from scratch. Unsurprisingly, it wasn't easy to accomplish such an ambitious task within an enormous organization like the BBC. The article also details the complex internal politics at play, as different sectors of the corporation argued with each other about resources and talent snatching. If you're interested in the BBC, publishing, or the web in general, it's definitely worth a read.
