I was sort of expecting maybe one or two folks to actually get back to me about the 30 day June cooperative development sprint that I proposed the other day. There are, hmm, substantially more than two folks interested. Well, great, the more the merrier.
In the interest of not totally overwhelming everyone and also keeping the amount of administration to an absolute minimum (I will be, shall we say, sort of busy that month… ;) ) , Sohail (fellow BoSer who wanted something like this to get organized) and I are going to set up a unified RSS feed. (Basically, its like PlanetMicroISV except it only contains posts about this project, and it doesn’t have a dedicated website. If you don’t know how to use RSS yet, I recommend http://reader.google.com)
We encourage you to subscribe to the RSS feed and post here with the category or tag level feed for your own blogs which is specific to this challenge. For example, if you were me, and you were diligent about filing these posts under the category 30days, your feed address would be http://www.kalzumeus.com/category/30days/feed . This will hopefully keep the signal to noise ratio of the unified RSS feed fairly high.
Participants In No Particular Order
(If your name isn’t on this list but you got in contact with me, it is either because I wasn’t quite sure if you wanted to be publicly acknowledged or I missed it in the torrent of email. My apologies.)
“I Hate Integers”
If I missed you or you have a feed URL which you’d like added, kindly drop it in the comments to this post. Akismet, the WordPress anti-spam package, sometimes doesn’t play well with links in comments. Rest assured that even if it doesn’t pop up automatically I’ll be hunting to make sure it doesn’t get lost.
Alrighty, thats all the time I have for today. Come back on the 1st for the official kickoff of my project, and hopefully my first of many comments on what other folks are coming up with. See you in June!
