A call for Frontier jocks
By Dave Winer on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 at 8:51 PM.

Remember Frontier? #

The object database, outliner-based, multi-threaded programming environment that spawned blogging, RSS, podcasting and much more. Lots of people say they loved it. Well it lives. For you to love again.  #

A picture named elephant.jpgIn 2004 it was released under the GPL. And this year it's bundled as an Amazon AMI and forms the core of EC2 For Poets#

In the last four months, we've released a bunch of major new code. It's going to form a huge coral reef for a new activity called blorking, which I'm going to talk about at The Next Web conference in Amsterdam at the end of the month. A long way to go to tell you all about what I've been cooking up. Unless you love Frontier and you love an adventure. For those of you who do, start reading here, going back in time. #

I'll have a lot more to say about this. Sooon. :-) #

Still diggin! #

PS: We also need jQuery and node.js programmers, or equivs -- to port bits of the back-end to help us scale. #
