Next generation websites will be conversations

What will the future of web look like from a designer/developer's point of view? Currently, more and more corporate websites are converting to 'web 2.0'. The changes don't come as fast here the Netherlands as in the states, and many smaller firms still lack behind with an outdated, non-semantic site from the 90's which often isn't anything more than a digital business card, but nevertheless many firms begin to see the benefits of web 2.0 and the need to keep up if you want to be taken seriously.

So now you can filter your search, register on-line, pay through iDeal (creditcard coming soon) and signup to visit the studio or appartment of choice. Many, many options are only visible to paying members.

Spotted by Locals

Recently, we did some work for Spotted by Locals. This site contains a series of cityblogs - 17 cities in Europe in total (and more to come). Each blog is maintained by a select number of hand-picked (face-to-face) locals who really know the hotspots in their town and love to write passionately about them. This way, a high quality level is guaranteed.

So, how was DrupalJam?

Last friday we went to our first DrupalJam right here in our hometown Breda. It was a bit like a mini-mini-drupalcon. A lot of familiar faces and a lots of Drupal-talk. We could only attend the afternoon program, where we took part in:
