I just saw a tweet from Jeff Potts, Chief Community Officer at Alfresco pointing to an article on CMSWire.com in which the CEO of Univa, Gary Tyreman, claims that proprietary software is safer, less bug free than Open Source Software. In fact, Tyreman goes as far to say:
— The directors met (in a lift) and got talking about creating a new type of more-complete web services company
— Netsight was born, moving off the kitchen table and into offices in Bristol (acquiring its first employee and first office plant)
— Built our first Zope-based website
— Netsight participate in one of the first Zope 3 development sprints
— Netsight launches BMEX, a high speed fibre optic network linking media and research companies across Bristol.
— Made it to the final of our first awards ceremony... beaten by MGM Grand Las Vegas. Next time Gadget...
— Built our first website using the hip, hot new platform on the block, Plone (and the site is still running to this day!)
— Participated in our first Plone development sprint - the infamous 'Snow Sprint' in Austria. Much Schanpps, and Matt's impression of a human snowball.
— Plone Foundation formed to promote and protect the future of Plone with Netsight director Matt Hamilton on the inaugural board.
— Win our first FTSE100 client, a large intranet project for a high street bank.
— Netsight builds its custom designed data centre. The first independent facility of its type in the South West.
— It all comes together: Plone's popularity increases dramatically and Netsight completes its 200th project
— Bought a pool table for the office. A league table is hastily organised. Productivity takes a knock, but soon recovers.
— Netsight enters its second decade of business, with its busiest year to date and plans for a hell of a party.
— Netsight wins bid to host the Plone Conference 2010 in Bristol. Expecting over 400 people to descend on our beloved city.
