Global CMS Geekery

Good news. CMS Geeks are getting tanked up all over the world, and it’s spreading. If you live in/travel to one of these areas, join your groups and tell your friends. A few cities with a visible CMS presence haven’t joined in yet. I’m talking to you Stockholm and Copenhagen. And Western Europe could use a couple. Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and India need to represent too.

Goodbye LBi, Hello Mayhem

A change is as good as a holiday, they say. Well, after ten brilliant years at the company now known as LBi, it’s time for a change. I wasn’t looking for anything, but an opportunity came along that, had I turned it down, I’d probably regret forever.

#cmshaiku 2010 Beer Contest

It’s the biggest competition to hit the web in a long time – The 2010 CMS Haiku Beer Contest. We created the fourth worst poetry in history, caused the CEO of Sun to resign, and inspired a prize for the Gilbane Conference in San Francisco.

I’ll take my lessons from Lennon, Dylan, Hendrix, Page, Jagger or Morrison over social media whore @GuyKawasaki or ego-blogger @Scobleizer any day of the week.

CMIS, JCR and OSGi for Idiots

I had the chance to drink beer and talk shit with the great David NĂ¼scheler, which inspired me to draw a picture all about JCR, CMIS and OSGi.

Reflections on EPiServer London Day

So I managed to get to the EPiServer Customer and Partner Day in London. The main goodies on the roadmap are the new Marketing Arena, and EPiServer 6.

Vendors, Stress Balls and Beers

Today was Day 1 at Internet World 2009 a.k.a. #iwexpo for the Twitterrati. I chatted to lots of vendors, performed a vendor selection exercise, and drank a fair bit of sweet sweet beer.

Portals That Walk And Talk Like Ducks

Everyone knows I’ve got a thing against all Portal software when it is used for what I consider the wrong kind of site. This is just another example, but caught me after a bad day at the office.

Ten Things About Me

Kas Thomas tagged me in his “10 Things About Me” meme (Me! Me!). So this content free post has just that. Nothing at all about CMS or Tech. Move along, folks, nothing to see here.
