Love Grows in Collaboration

The Sydney Morning Herald has just covered our JIRA case study about Linden Lab, the company behind Second Life. JIRA is designed to be user-configurable and so applicable to projects as diverse as Linden Lab's love machine, or more prosaic tasks such as recruitment. "Recruitment is not often thought of as a workflow," Mr Cannon-Brookes says. "But we think it is because a resume bounces around between people and eventually there is an outcome: either you hire someone or you don't." If you hadn't

“Try out Gliffy”

I was at the Gilbane Boston conference over the last couple days. For all the right reasons, the new Gliffy plugin for Confluence received a lot of attention from anyone who stopped by the booth.

It's not the first time I've used it and honestly, it makes perfect sense. If you haven't checked it out, it's Visio-like but free and with

Top Web Apps in Australia

Did you know Australia’s Internet penetration is about 70%? Ditto for the U.S. I'd say that's not too shabby...readily connected, actually. With such a high Internet use-to-population percentile, the next thing to consider is how is it supported and what has been developed during this Internet-age. In the States you have lots of web companies, particularly in the Silicon Valley. Lots in Australia, too — though you might not have guessed it. Here's a quick rundown of the top Aussie web 2.0

Inside the Firewall

Blogs about Google's acquisition of JotSpot continue to pop up on our RSS feeds. We saw this one and wanted to add it our list of blog mentions: So now, if you want something inside your firewall, it's pretty much Confluence or nothing (we chose Confluence anyway btw - it's amazing and far, far ahead of everything else). Read philwilson.org Google acquires JotSpot, JotSpot Server product dropped.
