Vox Media licenses Chorus to Sun-Times; take a look at what the backend’s like
The team at Vox Media deserves all the snaps for its work on Chorus, the once-mythical “unicorn” content management system that does just about everything a digital publisher could want.
Today competition is thick with Washington Post’s Arc, among other smaller upstart and legacy vendors, trying to monetize their homegrown CMS, but Vox is remaining competitive and just announced the Chicago Sun-Times as their most recent signup.
Since I’m a major CMS nerd, I wanted to see what Chorus looks like these days. Last time I checked in, they hadn’t integrated all the awesome tech or human talent of the Editorially team, acquired by Vox Media in 2014. But no they have, and boy is it pretty.
These screenshots were exploded out of a GIF posted to the Chorus homepage.

H.L. Mencken’s “Life of Kings” quote does the industry a disservice and in this column I argue that publishers should use an older framework, noblesse oblige, to better understand their social obligation.
Old but new to me.
