Is "crowdsourcing" the new "design by committee"?

While asking for input on the New Internationalist redesign process the other day, one of my friends replied (in jest) “Is ‘crowdsourcing’ the new ‘design by committee’?” It got me thinking about why I’m excited by open and transparent design processes, and how concepts like crowdsourcing are exactly the opposite of design by committee. (Well, sometimes.) For me, the excitement stems from a passion for learning.…

Perl: Love it, or hate it, but don't ignore it.

Call me a curmudgeon (and many do), but I just can't understand why intelligent folks make the choice to completely ignore Perl.

Over the years, I've been involved with a fair number of Bricolage implementations for different organizations. (For those that don't know, Bricolage is a large, Perl-based, publishing system.) Many of these organizations don't have a full-time Perl programmer on staff, and instead rely on external contracts to do the heavy lifting that comes up from time-to-time.…

New Internationalist online branding

As part of the New Internationalist redesign project, I’m focussing on how the organization presents itself online. To begin that process, I’ve been researching the printed magazine since it started in 1973. (I should stress that I’m not working on the organization’s overall branding, nor the design of the magazine.…

Getting to the root of Perl's perception problems

The interest in improving the perception of Perl is increasing every day (much to my surprise!). From Matt S Trout's initiative to feed patches back to the maintainers of perl.org to Jon Allen's TPF grant application to Improve the visual design of Perl websites, to Gábor Szabó's Measurable objectives for the Perl ecosystem, each step builds on the next.…
