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.…

I believe in Open. Can you help me promote it?

I passionately believe in Open, but I need your help to sell my case to the rest of the New Internationalist co-operative. You see, each year the co-op determines the subject of the next ten issues of the magazine at an annual general meeting, and they do it in a very co-op-y way, with lots of discussion, and consensus-building, and then -- when that all fails -- by direct democracy. Its a beautiful thing to watch.…

Exploring Perl web frameworks

A couple of years ago I started looking at options to deliver common “front end” functionality for sites using Bricolage, the content-management system that is used at New Internationalist Initially, what I had in mind to provide this front-end functionality was a “swarm” of micro-applications, where each little application provided one simple, specific, function, e.g., user registration, comments on content, voting and rating, sharing content, etc.…

The big "Explore Perl" button, where is it?

How can we make Perl more explorable? That's the question I've been wrestling with since my last post about Getting to the root of Perl's perception problems. (By the way, thanks for all of the feedback -- very helpful). As I continued to think through the different audiences that Perl needs to speak to and the challenge of helping them find the information they're looking for, I kept coming back to one idea: we need a Sherpa.…

Free software Fridays. Let's promote participation.

One of the most enjoyable benefits of working with a not-for-profit workers' co-operative is being able to invest some time into activities that aren't exclusively tied to generating revenue. New Internationalist has long-relied on free and open source software and this year we will try to formalize our efforts to contribute back to projects that have helped along the way. The concept is Free Software Fridays, which is something we hope will catch on at other organizations.…
