by Ploum on 2007-05-08

This May 19th will be the 2nd Open Discussion Day. The goal ? Like the first one : spread the open formats and protocols love . Jabber, of course, but also OpenDocument, SIP, Jingle, Ogg Vorbis, Ogg Theora, …

A bunch of people want to continue this crazy idea this year so I need your help on the Open Discussion Wiki. Register and join the love ! If you never heard of the Open Discussion Day before, read this.

The challenge is simple : make a very light webpage, with very short texts that are understandable by your grand-mother ! Technical accuracy is not required : keep it short, very short, fun to read and simple. Remember : people don’t like to read, people don’t like computer ! So don’t write too much. Will you be able to take up the challenge ? Really ? So, join us.

Remember : 15 lines per page, a few pages, no more (see the sitemap) ! It’s really not as easy as it sounds. The goal is not be a reference like JabberFR, we just want to be a starting point, in many languages.

As you can see, we are also looking for CSS artists, illustrators, etc. Any help is welcome ! If you have any questions, contact me.

I know that the time is rather short : living in Mexico gives you bad habits. But it is possible ! So, we will do it !

PS : must I buy opendiscussionday.com or anything similar ? Any ideas ?
