    Uncle Sam Wants You To Update Your WordPress Plugins

    In times of war, you may be asked what you can do for your country. In modern times, your country may be asking you to do your part by updating your WordPress plugins.

    The United States' Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), through the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), issued a public service announcement last week recommending website administrators to update their Wordpress sites. More specifically, the bureau wants you to update your third-party WordPress plugins.

    In honor of long-time Drupal contributor Aaron Winborn (see his recent Community Spotlight), whose battle withAmyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) (also referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease) is coming to an end later today, theCommunity Working Group, with the support of the Drupal Association, would like to announce the establishment of the Aaron Winborn Award.

    This will be an annual award recognizing an individual who demonstrates personal integrity, kindness, and above-and-beyond commitment to the Drupal community. It will include a scholarship and stipend to attend DrupalCon and recognition in a plenary session at the event. Part of the award will also be donated to the special needs trust to support Aaron's family on an annual basis.

    Thanks to Hans Riemenschneider for the suggestion, and the Drupal Association executive board for approving this idea and budget so quickly. We feel this award is a fitting honor to someone who gave so much to Drupal both on a technical and personal level.

    Thank you so much to Aaron for sharing your personal journey with all of us. It’s been a long journey, and a difficult one. You and your family are all in our thoughts.

  • CMS Industry Working Together to Standardize Personalized Web and Digital Experience

    Standardizing personal experience sounds impersonal, doesn't it? Yet, that's what we're talking about here and there are plenty of software folks believing it's the right time for such an effort. When companies manage or utilize a number of systems involved with customer experience management, there is a need for those systems to transfer data from one system to the next. It is a huge challenge for CIOs, trying to streamline heterogeneous technologies and the data and transactions flowing from each solutions from their information system, while at the same time avoiding losing control over the collected data.

    Working together, Jahia and Enonic have launched a new project at the OASIS international consortium to develop a standard that will enable the creation, management and delivery of personalized web and digital experiences. This initiative lead to the creation of the OASIS Context Server (CXS) Technical Committee (TC). Think of this effort similar to what brought us Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) but instead of a standard for content, we're talking about a standard for personalized data.
