An interesting news announcement over at Alfresco Software. Alfresco have appointed Doug Dennerline as their new CEO. Here’s the PR announcement. I was very privileged to work with Alfresco for quite some time and they are a great company with great people. I’m sure Doug Dennerline will enjoy leading them to their IPO.

I’ve always liked the fact that such a strong open source company was built out of the UK. I also like the fact that there are strong open source companies out there as the whole paradigm has largely got a bit boring. I spent a long time waiting for the crest of the open source wave. Turns out it got swallowed up in the crest of the cloud wave. Good luck to Alfresco on the next step of their journey.
