[ALLY] Call for Submissions

From: tchang:rebol at: 14-Aug-2001 13:17

Hi All, 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 distributed computing. 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 computing?" 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 working on. 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! Yours truly, Tom Chang Managing Director REBOL Consulting, LLC University Park at MIT 129 Franklin St. #211 Cambridge, MA 02139 (617) 494-5507 voice (617) 494-0985 fax
