I am around for a while (a.k.a. 2.5 months) so I am flexible. Evenings any day this week or next week is fine with me.

I'd like to propose next Monday,  November 3 7pm at RedBones for the Boston OpenACS social.  It worked pretty well there last time.

Does that work for folks?

In this context, does "CMS" mean Course Management System (in which case we might be getting interested again, after a year hiatus) or the Content Management System specific to openacs (in which case it's over/to the side of my head for a while).

Rich,

I originally meant Content Management. Course management could be implemented similarly.

Also closely related is knowledge management.

I am interested in making it easy to add "stuff" to the database, give it a URL, and present it to users.

Wait, did you mean the CMS package? I hope to resuse the useful parts of that package, but its more about implementing a content management user interface that makes it easier to create content.

Um, I just meant the "pre-social meeting to chat about CMS issues." :-)

Brandeis dropped out of sight as far as openacs is concerned about a year ago, then we started thinking of looking again and hey, there's a social on Monday...

If you've got technical issues to work on, I'll stay out of your way, lurk and maybe have some BBQ later.

Rich,

If you can make it, I am sure it will be interesting. We don't have any technical issues to work on. I am thinking more of stategy, direction, and use case types of discussion.

I definitely want to keep in mind the additional things like learning object repository, knowledge management etc. although I think the first released product will be just a content management system.

So anyone with any interest in content management at all is welcome.

Hi Dave,

Can you give me some info after the CMS meeting?  Unless someone is willing to fly me in there.  I will be stuck here half way around the globe.

Jun,

Definitely I will share what results from this "meeting". I hope this will get us back on track to get at least one CMS user interface into OpenACS.

I am not yet sure which room we are going to meet in to talk about CMS, so I suggest we meet in the lobby of Sloan at 4:30pm (there are little tables, lounge chairs, and sometimes even free coffee and treats). We can then go to the room at around 4:50pm (unless the treats warrant staying in the lobby). I will tape our final location on a white piece of paper close to the elevators for anyone that might come late (will write CMS in big letters on the paper). See you this afternoon.
