Rethinking the WordPress editor
Jay Hoffman has some good thoughts over on Torque about what lies ahead for the WordPress content creation experience. Between content blocks and front-end editing, writing a post in WordPress two years from now will not be like it is today.
I personally believe that less restriction of in-post art direction along with heavy integration potential for custom meta data will be what will really help WordPress break out of
the_content() and into truly beautiful and seamless content creation.
