Oh I was just complaining that a not so unimportant open source site
moves away from Zope to a php-based system.
We have a pretty good visibility in Germany concerning fairs. We are
at the CeBIT, the LinuxTag and the Systems with an own booth
promoting Zope and Plone covering the most important fairs so far.
Though I must admit that all this is shouldered by quite a few
people. And thats the real problem. We're missing people who just
write about Plone and Plone products in magazines or blog about it.
I am sure that next years WPD will be a bigger success than the first
Concerning the Heise-event I mentioned we have a problem due to the
concept of this event. Its a business-event labelled open source,
that means that smaller and bigger companies spend a lot of money to
be sponsors of this event and have the opportunity to present their
things to the audience not only in the conference programme. Last
year we had a talk at "Open Source Meets Business" but this year
there won't be no Zope/Plone talk.
Having a talk there is not enough, it is better to have a booth, but
a booth is only for sponsors.
What do you think about listing strategic events, where we have no
visibility at all in the last years and see, if we can improve it?
For Germany I would propose:
"Open Source Meets Business": an annual three days conference
organized by the Heise Verlag, the most important publishing house
for it topics. Conference fee is high, everybody is wearing a
business suit. ;-)
The topic of a talk should not be technical. A good case study would
