Web Application Developer Job, eROI

eROI is seeking a dedicated and experienced developer to lead the web application development of a suite of software products. Do you have the personality and passion to join an agile team creating modern web applications?

Demystifying social networking

Julie Yamamoto writes “Last night, about 20 web developers, journalists, bloggers, marketers and assorted PR people working in PDX gathered for a discussion hosted by Dawn Foster, a community manager at Jive Software downtown. Here are a few insights from Dawn that really hit home for me. It’s a bit of Web 101, but Dawn laid it out so simply and so well.”

Scott Kveton: I’m for the Open Web

Scott Kveton writes “Instead of just complaining, I’m going to continue focusing my efforts where I think I can make the most impact. I’m going to continue working hard to promote and enable the OpenID community, I’m going to continue to encourage and engage in discussions with projects like OAuth, microformats, DiSo and others and I encourage everyone to join me in doing the same.”

Make OpenID go away

Nathan Bell writes “There seems to be broad consensus among both OpenID supporters and detractors: OpenID is confusing to use and that for it to have any hope of success OpenID needs to find ways to fade to the background.”

Attensa at Enterprise 2.0

From the Attensa blog “With the new attensa.com site launched today and a new version of the Attensa Managed RSS platform in the bag, we’re heading to Boston for the Enterprise 2.0 conference.”

Enterprise 2.0 Conference community runs on Jive Clearspace

Jive intimates “The Enterprise 2.0 Conference community site is running on Jive Clearspace 2.0. Wait until you see what’s coming in 2.1 in a few weeks.”

Netsquared Conference was Awesome!

Isaac Holeman writes “Squarepeg was one of 21 featured projects competing for the hearts and the votes of all the attendees. We didn’t end up taking home one of the top cash prizes (all the big winners have public beta or full release sites up, and we think they earned their rewards). We were able to bring home a few grand, receive some wonderful feedback, and meet a lot of really great people who are now interested in Squarepeg.”

PortlandOnline.com. We can rebuild it. We have the technology.

Pete Forsyth writes “PortlandOnline.com is the City of Portland’s official government web site. It is, largely, a broken web site. Information that should be accessible on a web page is typically hidden inside a PDF file. Resource allocations of amounts like $84 million cannot be found without first tracking down the relevant ordinance number, and even then there is precious little information available. (Ten points for whoever can find the $84 million item on this page!)”
