CLTV 39: zoomer.de – Manfred Schwendiger explains the technology behind it

February 19th, 2008

zoomer.de is a recently started german news portal which aims to be a News 2.0 website with lots of user interaction and control.

At the Snow Sprint 2008 I had the chance to talk to Manfred Schwendinger from Lovely System. Lovely Systems build the site based on Zope 3 technology and Manfred showed me especially the solution they used for the commenting system.

CLTV 37: First Look of mixxt (Screencast)

November 15th, 2007

First Look is a series I just started with this video and consists of screencasts I do of new sites where I eventually get some invite. I want to test them without checking them out before so I can spot bugs or usability problems. This also migth give a chance to the developers to see a first time user (geek though) navigating their site. I am aware that much of this what I see is subject to change of course.

So this first episode is about mixxt.de, a new social networking platform similar to Ning. It allows you to create your own social network in 3 minutes (I did not take the time though).

So here is the video. It was done somewhat early in the morning so my english is not fully there yet 😉

I also want to thank Philipp Ellenbeck of mixxt who did a great job on providing instant support to my questions and problems. Many of my initial problems are solved by now.

Plone Conference 2007 in Second Life

October 9th, 2007

Plone Conference 2007

We are doing it again! After the great reception of streaming the Plone Conference last year to Second Life it will also happen again this time. From Oct 10-12 about 340 Plone fans and experts will meet in Naples for the Plone Conference 2007, over 50 people will give over 60 talks in 4 tracks. Topics will range from Beginner’s tutorials to highly technical details about the Open Source Content Management System Plone.

And you can be part of this even if you are not in Naples yourself. Just join us for the Plone Conference in Second Life. We are working hard right now to make streaming possible. The great thing is that Second Life also helped in finding a sponsor for streaming. Some months back I was visiting a Cisco event where the keynote of the Cisco CEO was streamed live to Second Life. The stream was provided by StreamGuys and we talked a bit about streaming into Second Life. This turned out to be a great connection as they are now sponsoring us to get the stream from Naples to Second Life. Thanks to StreamGuys!

Also available will be streams via WWW of course.

For more information check out the Plone Conference Streaming Page.
