Open Solaris users in London on Wednesday

OpenSolaris: Innovation Matters The next meeting of the London Open Solaris User Group (losug) is due to be held  this Wednesday, Oct 17th at Sun's Customer Briefing Centre, Regis House on Lower King William St. The agenda has been posted at their site, and is about LDOMS. Once again, I have been unable to give people both a two week and two day notice of these meetings, and since two days notice would be tomorrow, I shan't bother as its too close to this notice to be useful.

Plazes 2.0

Plazes, which I wrote about here...  just updated, actually a couple of days ago,  their agent and presumably the back-end infrastructure and proved the Web 2.0 permenant Beta adage as the true as ever. Its an interesting problem with their architecture that they need to update the laptop clients. I hope they have improved their network update functionality as the automatic update failed to work on my XP client and the manual downloads did not become available for a couple of days. I was still able to use the phone to update the web site though so no catastrophe.

The web site functionality seems much richer so thats good.

To me one of the biggest outstanding problems is that they don't stimualte a self-help community. It would be easy enough to copy the games companies, or even Dell and Sun's developer forums. Its sort of interesting who does and who doesn't. For instance I can't find a Sony-Ericcsson official community site but have found an unofficial bulletin board for Sony Errison users. Flickr has a help site although I have only found two forums, New Ideas and everything else. My favourite of the official sites are the games sites of which Bioware Forums are a good example offering personalisation tools to allow people to track their own interests. Several of the Bioware fan forums use Invision's community management software. Two implementations that illustrate the strength of community and the personalisation capability within this tool  are Gibberlings 3 and Spellhold Studios, while RPG Dungeon uses Simple Machine Framework. As ever, you need to read the small print to discover which are free and open source. Both these solutions have RSS.

Yesterday & Tomorrow at the London Open Solaris User Group

Innovate on Open SolarisSo, I popped out last night after work to hear Jarod Nash, talk to the London Open Solaris User Group (losug) about SMF (the service management framework). An excellent and comprehensive pitch, and I shall post (or get Jarod to post) his slides somewhere and let you know where they are.

The next meeting is at Sun LIVE on March 13th, at Central Hall Westminster, where Simon Phipps is planned to talk to the group. Previous agenda have covered, Fault Management Architecture and virtualisation.

Otherwise the meetings are planned for the third wednesday of each month, except August, to the end of the year, to be held in Sun's City Customer Briefing Centre. (Apr 18th, May 16, Jun 20, Jul 18, Sep 19, Oct 17, Nov 21, Dec 19.) I wonder, if we can bring the discussion held internally about features required for a laptop desktop into the public. It was certainly lively enough, and given that its now opensolaris, non Sun people need to join in.

I have tagged this both within roller and at technorati, I am considering placing reminders in the brought forward feature for the next meetings (with technorati tags) to allow anyone to set up a technorati watch list on these tags and thus receive the reminder's through their favourite RSS reader.

Let me know if you'd find this useful.
