How to go about with product management?

Michael Korcuska, who is the Executive Director of the Sakai Foundation, has formulated his ideas and views on product management for Sakai. Coming from a corporate background, he has some refreshing ideas that blend in nicely with the Sakai 'way of working' so far. Michael invites everyone to comment on the wiki of the Sakai Foundation.

osportfolio.org for all your portfolio information!

The OSP (Open Source Portfolio) hosts a website at www.osportfolio.org. The site is getting filled as we speak. But you already can find some very useful FAQ's on the website.

This is really cool! Really!!!

In the last couple of days I saw some emails coming by about My Sakai. This is something very cool that our colleagues have created in Cambridge.
What is My Sakai? It is a piece of software that makes it possible to view important information from your Sakai installation in Facebook, iGoogle, Google Desktop, Mac DashBoard, an RSS reader and the Vista Sidebar, so that you don't have to go into Sakai to see the newest Resources or Announcements.
Although it is still beta software (it is a so-called Contrib tool), it sounds very promising to me. Check out the Confluence space for more information.

Moving on....

First of all I would like to extend my best wishes for the New Year to everyone within the Sakai community that I have met in the last 3 years. I am writing this blog post to let you know some exciting news (at least for me)!
First of all: I am not employed anymore at the University of Twente as of Jan 1, 2008. I have started my own elearning consulting business. Please update your adressbook with the details as mentioned below.
More importantly: I am still a big fan of Sakai, and will keep working within and for the Sakai community as much as I can. As a matter of fact, I am right now working with Portfolio4u on some exciting projects. This Dutch Sakai weblog will remain active, and we will keep you updated on things happening in The Netherlands.
