[ALLY] Call for Submissions
From: tchang:rebol at: 14-Aug-2001 13:17
It's me again. I have some potentially good new
for REBOL allies. A writer for the Technology
Review has just contacted me because he's interested
in writing a story about REBOL and lightweight
For those of you who don't know, Technology Review
is the monthly magazine put out by MIT. It's
readership includes not only all MIT staff and
alums, but also a large number of CTOs, CEOs, and
other decision makers at tech companies both large
and small. As such being featured in an article
like this could be a real coup for us.
Before he pitches the story to his editors though,
he's asked for "two or three cases where REBOL is
being used in an interesting way? It doesn't have
to be something deployed by a Fortune 500 company --
just some cases uf use now which you think
prefigure the future of lightweight distibuted
So far I have one. As such, I need your help. If
anyone out there in REBOL Land has built an
interesting REBOL based system or application, I
would very much like to hear from you ASAP.
For those of you who work in large companies and
have to deal with things like Promotion Limitations,
Trademarks, and other "Use of Name" issues, please
note that we WILL NOT publish or print any
information about you, your company, or your project.
Rather this information will simply be used to help
convince the editors of Tech Review to approve a
feature on REBOL. Then if the story is approved,
and /if and only if/ you and your company signs off
on it, is ther the possibility that any information
about you and your organization be published.
Well I appreciate all your help, and I look forward
to hearing about all the great things everyone is
Also be sure to keep your eyes out in the next few
weeks for a piece on REBOL by John Dovorak, and an
article featuring Carl and REBOL in the Washington Post.
Take care, and thanks in advance for all your help!
