Lots happening this week. The top story is Google's hire of Plone co-founder Alexander Limi. Limi claims that the one day a week he'll be free to work on the Plone codebase is more than he now has. We'll have to wait and see. At any rate, a great opportunity for him.
The Open Planning Project is helping to organize the Big Apple Plone Sprint. Folksonomic tagging, annotations, and syndication are the topics that are the most immediately interesting to me. We'd like to put some of this to work in the Pleiades site.
I'll be attending the Plone Conference this year instead of FOSS4G. Josh Livni and Chris Calloway have suggested PrimaGIS as a topic for the post-conference sprint, and now there it is on the tentative list. Sweet! I think it would be even better to expand the topic to Plone and geospatial in general and aim to come away with more interoperability between the several Plone mapping products.

Author: Chris Holmes'Limi claims that the one day a week he'll be free to work on the Plone codebase is more than he now has.'... James said the same thing about GeoTools when he went to work for them. Hasn't happened yet, indeed he's all but disappeared from any development (though is pushing Google in the right directions from inside). Though he's also just had another kid, so we're crossing our fingers that he'll come back soon... :(
