Content Management Professionals organisation launched

After about six months in gestation by a group of Content Management gurus and me, CM Professionals - The Content Management Community of Practice was launched in September.

We hope it to be a place where the sort of people who make content management actually work can gather and share information. Vendors are not allowed to join as an organisation (although people who work for vendors are welcome to join as an individual), and we don't really care too much about the technology. We know that the problems of content modelling, change management, business process modelling and actually getting reasonable requirements for a CM project are much harder than merely building some software to manage content.

If that sounds interesting to you, please check out the site and maybe even sign up. We're having our first official meeting, the CM Pros Summit at Boston in November, co-located with this year's Gilbane Conference. You're welcome to join us!
