ManilaPalooza 1.0 is over! Great time see you on the web tomorrow.
Here's the ManilaPalooza chatroom!
And the webcast.
What is Pike? "Pike is an outliner that's been custom-fitted to plug into Manila sites. You can create and edit stories with Pike. You can use it to edit your home page. And you can also use it to edit the myriad of templates that define how a Manila site is rendered. It's both a writing and design tool."
Of course there's a Pike-Beta mail list.
Basic things about Pike. 1.You must have a Manila site you can write for. Without a site, Pike is useless. It *only* works over the net. 2. Pike is a free public beta. No need to grovel. Everyone gets one. (This list will be added to.)
Screen shots of Pike being used to edit a weblog, template, story, XML and the home page of the Pike-beta site.
This screen shot would probably mean the most to MORE and ThinkTank users.
Yes yes yes we're going to webcast ManilaPalooza.
ManilaPalooza began for me last night. While Brent and Andre fixed bugs, did a security checkout and got the downloads and license agreement ready, Sheila and I went for a walk, and then did a little web work, and then drove to Palo Alto to get Spicy Noodles takeout (a first!) we talked about weblogs, community, outages.
I had some comments here about design vs cheese, but based on email I think I'll wait till next week to explore this stuff.

The NY Times reviews Cluetrain. "A manifesto should be full of hyperbole, and while this one often strains credulity in the particulars, the general thrust is on the mark."

Mr. T has something to say about all this weblog stufff.
Today is a day of celebration. Whether the demo goes well or not, today is a day when writing for the web becomes easier than it's ever been. There will be many more of these days.
I want to change the tagline for Pike from The first Web outliner to The Web's first outliner. Subtle but important difference. We are part of the web, our success is the web's success. When we win the web wins. That's part of the Ask Not philosophy.
