REBOL Promotional Idea

 [1/8] from: tim:johnsons-web at: 4-Oct-2001 9:13


My thoughts here are OS-specific. Please forgive me for that, but I'm working with what I have and what I know... Two ideas one big, one little. Here's the big one: There are numerous Linux magazines: Linux Format, Maximum Linux, Linux Journal, Linux Magazine. All of those magazines feature numerous code examples. There are mostly in C, follwed by perl, shell script and occasionally Python or PHP. why not raise a little ruckus with these guys and and see if some rebol code could get featured. There's a feature in this Month's Linux Journal on simple client/server apps. In C. Very long compared to same in rebol. Here's the little one: I and some friends publish a monthly 'web-zine' called "Frozen-North Linux Webzine". http://www.frozen-north-linuxonline.com/ We are getting some recognition. Last month, favorable reviews, links from major webzines. Over 10,000 hits. I would strongly push for submissions from "guests" <hint,hint> I would also push for links to rebolforces. Caution: Publisher is a bad-tempered bear of a guy. Lives in a log cabin. Hauls his water, cuts firewood and programs in perl. <g>Handle with care.</g> -- Tim Johnson <[tim--johnsons-web--com]> http://www.johnsons-web.com

How about articles (with business scenarios) on sites dealing with CTO, CIO etc ? Much as Rebol itself is a language-n-platform, I think the value add is really how business problems can be solved using Rebol's products and the community. YekSoon --- Tim Johnson <[tim--johnsons-web--com]> wrote:

I think that is a good idea in terms of approaching those large magazines. In terms of our webzine, that might be something to work up to over a period of months. I'm offering to insert articles about rebol at the beginning rather covertly at first. Our webzine is at least originally formed around the concept of a Linux "Community". If you look at the first archive, you will see an earlier column that I wrote. I challenge you to read it. I come from an entirely different point of view of business scenarios . You'll see a totally different scenario there. And I plug rebol. tj

There is always an open call for article submissions for REBOL Forces and also for the Zine. Only about 1 in 5 articles promised for REBOL Forces have turned up, and it looks like the /Zine has fallen prey to the same problem. I think we all enjoy writing REBOL, but just have trouble taking the time to write about it. I'm not giving up, I know there are many great articles out there just waiting to turn up ;-) Cheers, Allen K
