Web2open

Web2Open is an "unconference"—where anyone with a Web 2.0 Expo badge can share knowledge and join in open discussions with the community at large in three different ways:

* Open-Grid Sessions: You simply schedule your topic, show up, and lead the discussion. These can be scheduled onsite.
* Pre-Scheduled Roundtables: Join an open conversation with a panel of community members scheduled in advance.

Early in March I posted about hearing the founder of Drupal, Dries Buytaert, speak in Boston as part of an adjunct to the AiiM Show called DrupalCon. Part of that Drupal event was the first public explanation of the strategy behind Dries’ new venture called Acquia. Acquia is a commercial company to service and support Drupal as the popular open source social publishing platform tries to move to the next level in the market.

Great day for Drupal

Today was a great day for Drupal.

We kicked off our largest Drupal conference ever – more than 800 Drupal enthusiasts from all over of the world are getting together in Boston for one week to brainstorm, to share and to work on Drupal. DrupalCon Boston sold out six days in advance. It is twice the size of DrupalCon Barcelona, held just 6 months ago. It has been a blast so far.

Social Publishing ≠ Social Networking - So What Is It?

John Willis recently published a post that equates social publishing with social networking. While the post is pretty good, and I agree with most of the points, I need to correct the bit about the definition of social publishing. It’s way more than social networking. Let me explain.

Social publishing is a blend of three categories:
1) web content management
2) social software (blogs, wikis, social networking platforms, forums, etc.)
3) web app frameworks

A Dormant Drupal Opportunity?

Gartner, one of the leading technology industry analyst firms, published their list of the Top 10 Strategic Technologies for 2008 back in October 2007 at their Gartner Symposium/ITXpo event. I was at the event, but somehow missed the press release. Karthikeyan over at Seeking Alpha just posted a summary that brought it to my attention.
