The Public Press, a new daily newspaper for the San Francisco Bay Area

The Public Press is a concept for the next-generation daily newspaper. We're organizing a group of journalists, technologist and nonprofit managers to organize a new newsroom for the San Francisco Bay Area that would produce a Web site, daily print newspaper and collaborations with nonprofit news-gathering organizations locally and nationally. We've built a simple Drupal 6 site that we will be growing in the coming weeks and months, and we plan to start publishing on the Web using this platform.

Event / venue module?

Folks -

Wondering if there is/are any modules that integrate events (think classic community-calendar stuff) with places (think of directories of restaurants, nightclubs, parks, other places where those events might take place).

A "big iron" / proprietary CMS example are the sites being launched by my corporate masters and Gannett: Metromix New York Metromix Denver .

What are some examples of similar event/place driven sites that use one or more Drupal modules?

  • Attach to PayPal for automation
  • Auto expiration of coupons

Install profile for Newspapers – any further along?

We are beginning the development of a green building news portal and we are wondering if there have been any further advancements towards creating an install profile that covers many of the aspects of a good newspaper site. We are game to work with other end-users and a development team to arrive at this solution. What about someone who has a decent newspaper site that can have a generic version created to accommodate practically any type of focus topic? Am I over simplifying the task?

Thank you,
