Beaufort County NOW has Evolved to Transition into Eastern NC NOW | Eastern North Carolina Now

    It has begun, and it will be a process, but know this NOW: Beaufort County Now (BCN), created by Symbiotic Networks (SNI), has evolved to a point that this online publication's most natural progression is to transition into Eastern NC NOW (ENC NOW). Bearing the fact that this is an obligatory announcement of the beginning of this process, there will be many updates of this transition, including the initiation of multiple associative platforms that are also in the works, but that will be a developing set of stories for so many other days, long into the future.

    Beaufort County NOW (BCN) was always simply described by its creator as the prototype for our Symbiotic Publisher content management system (CMS), a system that we not only use for BCN, but many of the websites will build for others, offering it as two alternate versions, the latter being our Symbiotic Pro Version; what we use to power BCN. In this ongoing slow development process, BCN evolved into a highly functionable CMS: 1) fully searchable by subject; 2) fully Social in interface; 3) expandable in leading edge functionality; 4) rich in content; 5) the sheer immense size of the site(the largest online publication in the history of Beaufort County; one of the largest sites originating from northeastern North Carolina).

    All this considered, it seemed like a natural progression for the community, especially our regional locales, and principally the viability for SNI, to expand where there will be a greater natural need to direct a continual focus on what is most important; and it was well apparent that stage had to grow to meet our expandanded and expanding abilities: 1) to well accomodate those many needs; 2) to truly provide leading edge, most viable services for those who truly need them in this truly competitive market place, at this most competitive time to remain operational.

    Here NOW, this is my initial announcement of this beginning stage of so many helpful projects to come, so remain patient, there will be more to come.

    More announcements, greater explanations, innovations galore yet to come can be found here regarding the develpment and exposoition of ENC NOW.
