My work at #Alfresco has significantly influenced my thinking about open source business models. I put my thoughts in writing, and ended up with a blog post that is really a medium-length essay.

I am interested in comments on whether it is useful, what can be clarified, and ways in which you might disagree.

This video is funny for the practical joke, but sad for how our society has  distanced people from the source of their food.

We have a great panel assembled. Notice that it is on the first Thursday in January.
 
Prepare to upgrade to #Alfresco 5.0 in 2015 by attending Tech Talk Live on January 8: http://ow.ly/G7gLL

Next Wednesday is the December Tech Talk Live. Christopher Delp presented at Alfresco Summit in San Francisco, and it was highly rated. As you will see from his abstract, his use of the repository is not your average content management scenario. I am looking forward to the discussion with him, and I hope you will join us.
 
Tech Talk Live is a monthly, live session devoted entirely to a technical topic related to  Alfresco. This month Christopher Delp will introduce us to the open source project created by his team at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratories for modeling engineering systems within Alfresco. This is an uncommon use of the Alfresco repository, and learning about it helped me to better understand the capabilities of the system and its flexibility.

JPL takes an integrated approach to systems engineering. The Model-Based Engineering Environment (MBEE) is a means of supporting the systems engineering (SE) of space missions. The Europa and Mars2020 pre- are using MBSE to develop systems models of their respective Europa and Mars missions. This is necessary since the complexity of spacecraft as well as SE practices have significantly increased with newer missions. MBSE utilizes the systems models as the formal authoritative source for systems engineering products ensuring that the products are self-consistent and mutually correspondent. The system models constructed represent the whole range of systems engineering products from mission and flight systems concepts and designs to project systems representations.

This session will cover the current Model-Based Engineering Environment being used by projects at JPL and the work being done to develop and deploy the full MBEE. We will discuss the flight project scenarios that are currently driving the development of the MBEE and the needs that have developed out of supporting that work with the current deployment. We will also discuss the trades performed to determine the technology for deployment, the implementation and extension of SysML on a non-UML platform and the user experience studies and testing used to improve the SysML model development experience.

Registering for the event here will give you a reminder email. If you leave a question on this page, we will address it during the session. Or you can contact us at community@alfresco.com. Otherwise, ask your questions on #Alfresco during the live session. The event web site will include the YouTube video and an embedded webchat for our IRC channel so that you can participate in the discussion.

This video helped me to remember the Spirit of Christmas.
 
Stunning video based on a short story by the great Russian author Leo Tolstoy. Beautifully animated, marvelously narrated, you wont want to miss this.

Do any of you use Ello? I'm looking for people to follow.

Ello is a social network that has user protections written in to its charter. It is organized as a social benefit corporation. It is very new, and there are not many people using it.

If you need an invite, let me know.

Next Wednesday is the December Tech Talk Live. Christopher Delp is using the Alfresco repository in a way that I had not previously considered, and I expect you will find it interesting too. His session at Alfresco Summit was highly rated, and this tech talk live gives us a second opportunity to record it.

Don't forget about Office Hours on Thursday with Thomas De Meo.
 
Join us for another live session of Office Hours, where the Alfresco Community Team responds to your questions and discusses what is happening in the Alfresco Community.

This month Richard Esplin, Head of Community Relations at Alfresco, will be joined by Thomas DeMeo, Vice President of Product Management. This is a great opportunity to ask questions about Alfresco's product strategy, discuss specifics about the product roadmap, and learn how Alfresco prioritizes engineering tasks.

Registering for the event here will give you a reminder email. If you leave a question on this page, we will address it during the session. Or you can contact us at community@alfresco.com. Otherwise, ask your questions on #Alfresco during the live session. The event web site will include the YouTube video and an embedded webchat for our IRC channel so that you can participate in the discussion.

Please note that this month Office Hours is on a Thursday.

During the time I lived in Provo, I had Patterson's do all the work on my Subaru. Though he is the most competent mechanic I know, he was also one of the least expensive. He took the time to answer all of my questions and teach me a lot about my car. I am grateful for his help.

Meeting location for the Peckham Ward of the LDS Church (Mormon). As a visitor, I found them very welcoming. I feel like I made some great friends and I enjoyed worshiping Christ with them. We had good discussions about the scriptures, and I learned a lot. Services start at 10AM on Sundays.

Room was dirty. Door was broken from a previous forced entry and wasn't repaired properly so it wouldn't open reliably. There was some party going on all night with loud music. Breakfast wasn't great and cafeteria area was in disrepair. My next night in Laramie I stayed at another hotel.

Meeting place for the Slough Ward of the LDS Church (Mormon). As a visitor, they were very friendly and welcoming. I enjoyed worshiping Christ and I learned a lot from the scriptures. Meetings start at 10AM on Sundays. When asking directions, people said I should go to the "5 Points" as the closest intersection.

Had a long conversation with the estimator. Very nice and knowledgeable guy. He recommended I wait a few years to see if things get worse before paying the money for a repair. I appreciated his honesty!

For years PC Discounters have helped me meet my employer's needs, my client's needs, and my personal needs. They are very open with advice, and if they can't get a job done they tell me who can. From personal computers to racks of servers, I trust these guys with my business.
