We are the Community
While I am at the beginning to understand what eZ is all about, I have to give a huge applause to the crowd they keep. I spoke to executives, employees, partners, customers and all sorts of community members (they have 40,000+ community members). And the common pattern among the dialogues was the deep commitment to the cause and the great openness and friendliness among the community. They are really living up to their “we are open” claim highlighted by Gaby in her keynote. This was also reflected in Nicolas' session on Innovation and Open-source within the eZ Community.
Content reuse and re-purposing (and nice pictures)
When I spoke to Christof, Product Manager of eZ and our Markus, both pointed me to the keynote from Margaret Ann Dowling of Marquard Media Hungary with the quote: “Margaret impressed us by showing the potential benefits of content management technologies for multichannel publications to deliver in different formats to many target groups.” … what I found out too late, was that the Playboy was used as the example.
I could only capture a fraction of the activities, therefore here a few links and comments. If you have more, let me know and I will add them over time.
