Off to London on Thursday so we can work out how to contribute to the community effort. eLife have contributed a lot to the Coko Community, time to return the favor 🙂

A while ago, while researching into editor frameworks, I asked a question on the ProseMirror discussion app about who is using ProseMirror.
As it happens, it looks like the NYTimes is also using PM, and they just posted this interesting article about what they have done:
The work looks great, unfortunately, however, I think the plugins they are discussing are closed source… I’m going to see if I can reach out to them and ask about it.
Fred Chasen and Julie Blanc are in Athens with the Coko team and have been doing some exciting stuff… expect some pretty interesting updates very soon! Watch PagedMedia for news!
Presenting at the DPUB summit in Berlin, May 17, about open source and publishing. Details below.
A day of working today at the Coko team meet in Athens. Topics included PagedMedia, ProseMirror, Funding, Workflow, Authsome, Workflow Sprints, xpub, Editoria, collaboration around design and much more…
The Coko team are in Athens, Greece, for 3 days in a team meeting. Photos from day one…
“Much of this is related to a strategic decision to shift from developing a proprietary platform for submissions”
I used to do lots of events back in the day. The last big one I was really involved in was called net.congestion when I lived in Amsterdam around 2000… it was about the use of streaming media in art and activism. It actually turned about to be a huge, and timely, event.
So… now I’m pondering maybe putting something together around publishing…in the last year or so I have been fascinated by workflow in publishing. It seems to me to be a rich topic and pretty much publishing is all about workflow… if you would like to collaborate to make it happen let me know…its in the ponder stage at the moment…
