So, what did I miss?

OTHER I have been away from TWiki.org for a couple of years now and I am curious what I have missed during that time, what has changed? what should have changed that hasn't? What are some of the more interesting topics that have been created recently?

Sven mentioned CoffeeBreak has all but died during that time and told me that I have a lot of catching up to do so I thought I would kill two birds with one stone by archiving the old CoffeeBreak topics and posting a new one or two.

btw, its good to be back!

How cool is this set of video-episodes? I am stunned ... smile - http://www.ikiw.org/21days/
I especially like the following episodes: Day 16: Afraid to Share? / Day 13: Wiki vs. Content Management System / Day 4: Run a Pilot / Day 3: Your Wiki Isn’t Necessarily Wikipedia / Day 2: Wiki vs. Email

Our IT-department is planning a new survey. Here is a suggestion for a question for employees: "Wie zufrieden bist du mit der TWIRD (TwikiPlugins Installation Rate per Day)? ;)" literally translated "How satisfied are you with the TWIRD (TwikiPlugins Installation Rate per Day)? ;)"

Just wanted to say, I can't WAIT for TWiki 5.0 - I'm very much looking forward to deploying multiple separate instances of TWiki running on FastCGI using the changed architecture documented in TWikiStandAlone.

Could TWiki.org use a new Web?

DEPLOY In the spirit of recursive open source tradition, the TWiki.org website is fairly unique/interesting (for several reasons), but among those, because it is essentially a tool that serves as its own demonstration; "we drink our own cool-aid". I've often thought it a shame TWiki.org doesn't host a web dedicated to free form edits about [nearly] any subject including topics totally unrelated to the TWiki platform itself. Sandbox is a great web but it's not exactly what I am looking for, Sandbox has traditionally been used as a paste bin of sorts to test new ideas that might aid in development or become a new application/feature. This is great, but what if I want to write an article about my pet cat, or a coffee shop in my home town? Your initial reaction may be to say "Go to Wikipedia"

What a shame!

I'm trying to say, I think TWiki.org can expand the way in which it serves as its own example; by creating a web dedicated to its use as a traditional free-form wiki arena/forum. Something that would never survive on wikipedia due to their scope and their encyclopedic "NPOV" standards.

All of the existing webs at TWik.org have a narrowly defined scope focused on the TWiki platform itself even the Blog web is limited to Blogs about twiki! I think its time the greater TWiki community takes a look outward at the world through the lens of TWiki software if for no other reason than to demonstrate what TWiki can do in the real world.

Although I'm not sure what this web should be called (World?) I think it should exist for TWiki_ and for the people who (might) use it.

Just a thought, but I would love to see feedback on this thread. TWikiWorldWeb

TWiki on Google App Engine?

DEVELOPMENT There's a Googler with a 20% project to add Perl support to App Engine. Once it's added how about porting TWiki to it. It would be interesting to see how it would run on Google's infrastructure, and how well it scales.
