News in the Swamp?

"If you say something provocatively, in a new way, or with an unexpected spin, you will succeed online. If you play it safe, you will not." -- Michael Scherer, The Internet Effect on News

I think this is true online, but I think it's just as true in print and not only in the news business. I think it's true of all forms of communication, but it doesn't necessarily have to be considered pejorative -- as it's implied in this article. The "unexpected" can bring huge value and have nothing to do with spin. Communication has to grab and hold attention. How could it be any other way?

Community News II

A follow up to the Community News post.

The Advocacy CG now is now responsible for maintaining the news page on opensolaris.org. That page on the site was flying well under the radar for a long time, but I think now that OpenSolaris is generating a lot more press coverage, we'll be more active in posting and commenting on news directly on the site. Commenting about news coverage in individual blogs is fine but it's not focused, so we still need a detailed history of news coverage that lives on the site itself. As we grow into a community of general users complementing all the developers and administrators, we'll need this repository well maintained. Also, I opened a new mail list -- news-discuss -- for the posting and discussion of any news-related items about OpenSolaris around the world. Ok, that may be a bit ambitious, but you get the idea. And finally, the three Advocacy News Maintainers are Terri Molini, Joe G, and Bob Wientzen, and they volunteered via an open discussion in the Advocacy CG. They will evolve the news page and any necessary processes in collaboration with the community.

Community News

Here's a proposal for the OpenSolaris Community to maintain the news page on opensolaris.org, and there are a few people who have responded positively. Cool. This will be the first time a top level page on opensolaris.org will be maintained by the community in an open process. Expect this trend to continue. Also, what's cool about this is that as OpenSolaris grows to engage more general users around the world, international communications will become more important than ever.
