Commanding Chaos for Coworking, Open Source and Creative Communities

Nice website, but not very "community" COME ON!

Mon, 11/26/2007 - 01:03 -- rprice

Let me start off by saying that it is so utterly amazing that Central Florida has groups with funding who can do stuff like this, and we wouldn't be where we are now without CFACA and UA. Love ya, mean it.

Jim Morris of the Central Florida Arts & Cultural Alliance (they changed their name from Performing Arts Alliance) posted an article called "I get the change, but how are you different than United Arts?". He then tries to describe it. I think I get it, but it's hard to keep tabs...

Who works for UA? Who's in charge of the Red Chair Project? How do I get Florida Creatives Happy Hour listed there? How can I blog for them?

Why isn't there an official RCP blog, and why do Jim and Jessica have their blogs hosted on Google's server instead of their own?

Where are the graphics for the Red Chair Project I can post an official link on my website? (see the Miro logo, for example) Get Miro

Where's the iCal/gCal/RSS of upcoming events? Where are the comments on events? Why use a proprietary system? If you didn't use a proprietary system, where are the dang comments and RSS feeds? GO OPEN SOURCE, guys, you'll never regret it! EVER.

Give me a call 407-484-8528. If you don't see this post, I'm sure I'll see Jessica around town.

Edit: This is a re-post from May 21, as Mark Baratelli pointed out.

Why did I post this twice? I just haven't seen a move towards anything like this in the last 5 months, and Jim and I haven't really gotten in constant contact. They have this great opportunity in that they are at the center of public attention with this stuff. Me, as a lowly developer, can hardly make waves as big as United Arts and the Arts & Cultural Alliance.
