St.Ego in xarPolitics: Xaraya Project Management Committee Elected
Over the years, various people have scoffed at my aspirations of political involvement. Astrologically, I am a Leo, and I fulfill that stereotype quite well, if I do say so. Leo's are typically attributed with leadership skills and a strong inclination to use them. I am no exception. I was a supervisor almost as soon as I was hired on in many of the jobs that I have held over the years. Let's say that I just... have a tendency to take over.
As of this month, I am now officially a member of the Xaraya PMC (Project Management Committee), the body responsible for maintaining and supporting the Xaraya platform and it's developer communitee. Together with Marty Vance and Chris Powis, we will be responsible for ensuring that Xaraya continues to be the most viable web platform available.
Stay tuned for details about the Xaraya PMC and what it will be doing to start building the community. Not all of the developers have to work on the code; some of them have to work on the bigger picture.
It is my privilege and pleasure to serve alongside my fellow committee members. I look forward to posting here about my many successes with inspiring other leadership within the Xaraya community. This incredible tool is available to give web developers what they will find missing in any other FOSS platform on the market today. Welcome home and thank you for voting!
As some of you may know, I run this site on the Xaraya platform. For a few years, I ran it on PostNuke. At the time, I was one of the developers for PostNuke, creating a number of modular applications to run on it as a website platform. Then, the key developers of PostNuke, the people for providing the more innovative solutions it made use of, decided to begin a new project, one that could evolve beyond the inherent limitations of the existing platform. They called it Xaraya. Since the real talent went from PostNuke to Xaraya, so did I.
I have stood predominantly on the sidelines during most political issues within the community over the years. However, membership and participation have been dwindling. Xaraya runs the danger of not remaining viable simply because not enough people are aware of it, or what it is capable of.
The reasons for this are simple: Xaraya is for developers by developers. There has never been a significant public relations push, not since the split with PostNuke.
We left the real community behind, venturing off to the frontier to explore the boundaries of what could be done without existing limitations.
It is time for Xaraya to return, like a prophet from the desert, ushering in an era of entrepreneurial success that is just in time to catch the end of the recession and ride the next boom.
