mojoPortal mentioned at Mix07 Open Source Panel Discussion

I got an email the other day from Stephen Jazdzewski, a mojoPortal user running his site on Mono

He attended the Mix07 conference and mentioned mojoPortal in the QA session at the end of the Panel Discussion: Open Source Applications Using the .NET Platform.

The presentation is now online here. You can hear mojoPortal mentioned at about the 50:09 time reference.

Thanks a lot Stephen!, its great to get a little exposure at such an important event.

The National Recycling Coalition Goes Live With mojoPortal

The National Recycling Coalition (NRC) recently revamped their web site using mojoPortal.

The project was managed by DDB Seattle, which is part of DDB Worldwide Communications Group.

I helped with the project as a consultant, providing some help with skinning and custom feature development.

"The NRC represents every sector of the waste reduction field including local recycling coordinators, corporate environmental managers, state and federal regulators, environmental educators and advocates, and waste management professionals. NRC's objective is to eliminate waste and promote sustainable economies through advancing sound management practices for raw materials in North America."

Its very exciting to know that mojoPortal can play a small part in such an important cause as Recycling. It was also a pleasure working with the good folks at DDB Seattle, I hope to have an opportunity to collaborate with them on other projects in the future. They are true professionals.

A Couple of Interesting new mojoPortal Sites

Just a quick post to mention a couple of new mojoPortal sites.

The first is Living In The Boro, a site I helped setup for my good friend Julie Fischer. I've known Julie and her husband Bill for many years so it was natural that I picked Julie to help sell my house in Tennessee when I decided to move to Charlotte, NC. She did an awesome job and I recommend her to anyone that needs a real estate agent in Middle Tennessee. Julie also does pottery, so please check out her pottery site.

The second is a nice tourist information site for Reunion Island, man I want to go there someday!

I always add sites I know about to the mojo Sites page, but I don't find out about all of them, if you know of any more please let me know.
