why contribute?

Everyone is talking about Macromedia's Contribute. But what I don't understand is that how it's so revolutionary. How more easy to use is this than a customized content management system? If this has something to do with being able to edit static webpages without having to open them in DreamWeaver of Frontpage, how about a Wiki with a WYSIWYG edit box?

JoelOnSoftware:

When I'm training someone to be a C++ programmer, it would be nice if I never had to teach them about char*'s and pointer arithmetic

I know exactly what he means. I am a C++ guy at heart, but this is why I use PHP for more or less everything nowadays. (link found via Rob Fahrni)

I wrote to Rob when I saw a Visio ad in my inbox today, and before I could even reply to his first email, he had googled me out! (yes, it's a word).
