London WikiWednesday

July 5, 2007

Under David Terrar’s excellent stewardship London’s Wiki Wednesday goes from strength to strength. I was late (cars, money, train, keys)… but was pleased to discover that Bearing Point were serving champaign and giving away mugs! No wonder 50 people signed up to come along!

The highlight of the evening had to be Steve Coast’s presentation of OpenStreetMap – good to catch up with him and to meet Nick Black. Julie, Angela, Tim S, Martin, Mark, Alek and Lars were all there – and I met Harry Wood who has written a presentation on wiki gardening (that I want to see). I wanted to connect with Guy and lots of other people… looking forward to next month’s meeting.

It was late and I was last up  – but I did manage to mention that people should download and start playing with SocialCalc… and how easy it was to install!

Got home very late and caught up with the latest Germanic rages against Mappam on OSM… whatisitwiththesepeople?

STOSS now Socialtext Open

May 12, 2007

STAZI logoI am so pleased that Socialtext Open Source Software (STOSS) has been renamed simply Socialtext Open. STOSS always sounded so sinister – I once told Liz Henry that it reminded me of STAZI and BOSS – two happily defunct secret police organisations. Maybe living in the DDR for a year made me too sensitive to this kind of thing… anyway – Long live Socialtext Open!!!
