BCS Open Source Presentation

I don’t build up illusion ’til it makes me sick,
I ain’t afraid of confusion no matter how thick.

As I write this, we’re kicking off the BCS Event – Public Funds in the UK: Open Source for Document and Content Management? I’ll write more about the event afterwards, but I thought I’d share my presentation.

I assumed I’d be stoned if I used PowerPoint at an Open Source event, so I did this using Prezi, which I really enjoyed. First time I’ve used it – apologies if it makes you feel sick. And it probably doesn’t make any sense without me talking over it. Probably doesn’t make sense then either, but anyway.

    Like the BCC example and the guardian article – good reporting.

    Why do so few people concentrate on the implementation cost and the relationship with the implementation partner rather than the software?

  • It certainly seems software is much more sexy than anything implementation related

  • As I mentioned last night, the video to Subterranean Homesick Blues was filmed (for the documentary Dont Look Back) in the alley behind the Savoy Hotel, just 100 yards from the BCS.

    I thought this was a rather good intentional historical reference…

    Wikipedia article on the album.

  • Rory and Janus, I think that is a great theme to explore more.

    There are a lot of aspects – a lot of experience tends to be required to implement a CMS well. The software does affect the cost and quality of the implementation too though; but that may not be related to whether it is open source, more the architectural decisions. Code quality of the system matters a lot though, as bugs increase implementation cost and time, and open source may be less buggy than closed source software. And of course implementation quality may depend on the client and their relationship with the implementation company.

    Lots to explore…

    Put it this way :-

    A great implementation partner using a rubbish system will get you a decent site

    A great system with a useless implementation partner will get a big bill, no site and a search for someone to fix it.

    Of course a great implementation partner would never get themselves into a situation where they have to use a rubbish system and therefore it’s hypothetical.


  • I comment each time I like a article on a blog or if I have something to contribute to the discussion.

    Usually it’s caused by the passion communicated in the post
    I browsed. And after this post BCS Open Source Presentation | Jon On Tech.
    I was actually excited enough to post a commenta response ;-) I actually
    do have a few questions for you if you do not mind. Is it only me or do a few of the responses look like they are
    written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are
    writing on other places, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post.
    Would you make a list the complete urls of your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  • Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your site.
    You have some really good posts and I feel I would be a good asset.
    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d
    love to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link
    back to mine. Please shoot me an email if interested.

    This may not be the best place to ask this, but, I’m looking for Atlanta dentists and I don’t know where to look… has anyone ever heard of this Atlanta dental care? They’reIt’s based out of Atlanta, clost to my home. I can’t find reviews on them – Exceptional Smile LLC, 4420 Bankers Cir, Atlanta, GA 30360 – (678) 841-8800

  • If that is the case you might contact their insurance company and discuss
    the precise terms of the policy. Common routes are often traveled destinations by shipping companies
    usually major cities and ports. Suppose a national average cost per gallon of gas of $3.

  • Great looking site. Think you did a great deal of your ownyour very own coding
