Franz and Andy host another LIVE episode of Totally Random, your prime outlet for everything concrete5!

This week we talk about concrete5's awesome growth in Water & Stone's 2011 Open Source CMS Market Share Report, give a rundown of progress on our upcoming 5.5 release, plus lots more.


For some reason we can't grasp there's a sense that concrete5 was designed for small sites. Is this just because it's easy to use and our interface is sexy? So much enterprise software is horrible to use that it's easy to believe "no one would possibly want to use this, so enterprise ready = ugly."


I walked through the Occupy Portland encampment before it was broken up....

Last year we were pleasantly surprised to be mentioned as one of two systems to watch and the fastest growing community in the 2010 open source market share report.

This year the data gathering notice email got buried, and we're way behind. This is bad news.
Only you can help.

I know surveys are a complete drag, but it would really mean a lot to me and the community if we continued to be accurately represented in this report for 2011.

If you feel like concrete5 has saved you any time at all, please help us by giving just a few minutes back and filling out this survey. Tell your friends, tweet your link, stick it on your G+facebook-umbler thingie. This has got to be one of the easiest things you could ever do to give back to the community, so please help us all continue to grow!
