Some news snippets from some of the things I’m involved with:
An upgrade to the web site at www.cloudsmith.com – more features, particularly so that you can easily map your own repository, better documentation. The site is generating considerable interest in both the open source community, and some commercial firms seeking interesting new ways to distribute and support their software.
Note that the next major release of the Eclipse development environment – the Ganymede release – will be built using Buckminster: the team behind Buckminster also have built Cloudsmith, as I discussed in some earlier posts..
Opening in Feburary next, with the LIGHTWAVE festival and showcase, and getting some good coverage eg in Nature and the Irish Times recently. Watch the blog at www.sciencegallery.org for further news and announcements.
A great new video at http://www.youtube.com/user/UNICEFIreland – featuring Irish children with Irish celebrities Andrea Corr, Colin Farrell, Marian Finucane, Stephen Rea and Ryan Tubridy. Our UNICEF colleagues in the US Fund produced a similar (US centric) video last year, and the Irish National Committee have borrowed their idea, with permission.
“Every single child deserves to live”.
Their web site is now live at www.ammado.com I first mentioned Ammado and their CEO Anna Kupka earlier this year. Actually, I’m not directly involved in Ammado, but know the senior team and are very excited by what they’re doing.
An entirely new way of thinking about social networking is imminent…
