Automated Newspaper Generation   
Written before the advent of electronic newspapers, this program provided editorial support for the semi-automated assembly of printed newspapers at the largest German newspaper publisher.

Say page 4 is a page for "International/Far East" news; syndicated newsfeeds tagged as such (from news agencies worldwide) were displayed alongside the matching pictures and advertising to appear on this page.

Guided by the information on screen, the human editor made final decisions as to the exact content of each page, balancing interest, article/picture price, relevance, up-to-date-ness and advertising revenue.

It's easy to see how by adding cross media publication and more fine-grained locality/user targeting you have today's web based generated newspapers.

The (for its time) advanced nature of the object-oriented Mac application-development-framework Think Class Library was a most significant factor in the success of this project.
