Still at OSCOM. Listening to Jon Udell’s keynote as I type. Planning to write up what I learned over the weekend.
wired.com: “Motallebi is now awaiting trial. According to the Islamic news agency, he has been charged with “undermining national security through cultural activities” for the content of his blog, as well as his other writings and interviews he gave to foreign media outlets.”
We are registered for OSCOM. On a first pass of the Program, I find track two, “CMS contextualized (Law, Biz / Soc, Evaluation)”, most interesting. I like the focus on decision makers, society, users and deployment. Call it a good dose of reality . Here is my rough plan:
Thursday afternoon: Integrating Content Management and Semantics, Using Zope to Support Open Course Collaboration? A Case Study, Open Coding Innovation: socially responsible, sustainable economic and technological growth
Friday afternoon (hopefully): PANEL :: “Content for the Masses”
The next question, of course, is how can I make this run as my Desktop background? Answer (Windows): Control Panel -> Display -> Desktop -> Customize Desktop -> Web -> New -> (type in the URL) -> OK.
I am demonstrating how Categories work in Movable Type for my colleagues.
We’re starting to look at Microsoft’s SharePoint technologies. As with other well funded technology efforts, there is a sea of documentation to wade through to get to the good stuff. Here are a few of the URLs we think will be relevant to programmers:
Programmability in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services v2.0 Beta 2:
Windows SharePoint Services Web Service
Creating a Basic Web Part
Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies Downloads
These get you “into the tree”; the adjacent leaves are useful too.
See you at Berkman.
