  • Drupal, MODX: Open Source Communities, Vendors, and Giving Back

    What I find silly about this week's proprietary versus open source discussion is that I don't think proprietary is the biggest threat to open source. The biggest threat to open source is from within. Open source as a whole needs to do a much better job in preventing the discussion of  Open Source Community versus Open Source Vendor from getting out of hand. Open source must accept the role commercial vendors have in their community or they will soon find their community is financially unsustainable and difficult to be taken seriously. Vendors must also prove to open source that the community is better off with them than without them or that vendor is going to have have little influence at the community's leadership table.

    It takes awhile for open source as a community to respond positively to the changes that new or successful vendors may bring to their community. Most new vendors in open source soon realize that their standing in such communities is ranked not by their company's success but by how much they give or don't give back to their open source community.

  • CMS-Connected Video: MODX, Mobile and Social eCommerce

    CMS-Connected Video: MODX, Mobile and Social eCommerce

    The recording video of the March 26th CMS-Connected show is now available online. CMS-Connected is a monthly webcast featuring news, trends and commentary related to the content management industry. In this particular show the focus was on mobile and social eCommerce with much of that discussion including Gabe Sumner from Sitefinity. I also participated as a guest on the show discussing my impressions of MODX  during the "In the Spotlight" segment. Hosts Tyler Pyburn and Scott Liewehr of course are present throughout the show reporting and commenting about the latest happenings in content management and content management systems.

    My segment begins about 43 and a half minutes into the show and you'll find the video embedded below. If you want to do a lot more "segment hopping" in the video, check out the show's page at CMS-Connected where you'll find all the segments in this March show nicely indexed and parsed.

    If you're a business or organization interested in making your website look and behave just as spiffy on a mini-tablet as on your widescreen monitor, there are a few routes you could take to this destination.
