Absolutely. Some highlights seen from here:

• Distraction-free writing has to be much more distraction-free than what we imagined (for journalists to really like it)
• Auto-detection of content elements should properly wrap text (better guessing what's a header, sub, body, caption etc.)
• Journalists are as much curators of content today as they are writers. Which means we would have to dig into UI's that enable that (which is a quite difficult problem to tackle well at the UI level)
• Social media management for journalists means what? Since so many tend to use social media as a resonance chamber - looking at what's trending, curating social media and bouncing ideas with audiences, we would need to look into how to make that a lot easier to them. 
• Content orchestration capabilities and how we would tackle that in responsive news media sites
• How should we make content blocks change templates when editors move them around the page (based on heat-map stats for example)
• How to organize the CMS to enable prototyping capabilities with real content (freeing agencies from the issues of having to import and mock-up dummy content or even larger amounts of realistic content)

Those were some of the specifics we talked about.

Best. Rasmus
