I'm working on a platform with the Public Library of Science (PLOS) in San Francisco. I'm Designer and Product Owner, and working with a talented team of approximately 15 full time people. It is a platform for the production, processing, and publishing of science. It is a very versatile platform and could easily be utilised for many other purposes. Over the next months I'll be blogging a little about some of the approaches we have adopted and highlighting some interesting technical solutions. The platform will be Open Source.

The platform is an HTML first environment and includes ingestion of MS Word (and other formats) and conversion to HTML. I first presented some information about these strategies at Books in Browsers V last week in San Francisco. The video can be found around the 26th minute here:
