If you want to build a ship,
don’t drum up people together to collect wood
and don’t assign them tasks and work,
but rather teach them to long for
the endless immensity of the sea.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Dear Wordpatternthusiast,

Behold a vision of the revolutionary times that lay ahead of us, and a permanent approach to making the world a better place for you, for us and, most of all, for the children. For they shall grow up in a world without the agony of choice between a myriad of deficient CMS’s. The following truths shall guide our steps to the promised land, the holy grail of managing content.

State of the CMS crisis

There’s no denying it, it’s the elephant in the room that nobody is talking about: Content-Management Software has been in constant decline since the early nineties. There is no innovation, no focus, no strategy and no happiness in the CMS community, and nobody is tapping into the yearning for a grand unified solution – until now, that is. Wordpattern will be nothing short of revolutionary. Perpetual outside-the-box thinking and paradigm-shifting will elevate Wordpattern to a new level unheard of before in the world of Content Management Systems.

The “Silver” Bullet…

Our groundbreaking, no-nonsense approach of creating a fast and lean CMSMS (CMS management system) is unparalleled and will fulfill the need of every user out there – we won’t be content with anything less.

A pluggable and highly scalable framework architeture with zero-configuration will allow the integration of every CMS on the planet and provide full backward-, forward- and sideways-compatibility to existing solutions.

Wordpattern will bring unlimited, unfettered power to the creator of content and will do so with absolute usability in a unified User Interface that is so intuitive… it will make you cry. Wordpattern shall be highly flexible and require no learning or training time. Extensive multimedia documentation will accompany every release, as will trained emergency support personnel.

…delivered with ‘socialest’ passion

By harnessing the collective intelligence and wisdom of crowds, our users shall be our eyes and their servers be our ears. We all shall speak as one through the beauty of our code. If social software is good for users, it’s time to recognize that development can benefit from it as well. The Wordpattern community will bring the shop-soiled development concept of the bazaar into the 21st century by applying the concepts of tagging, ajax, comet, and widgets to the development process itself. All efforts shall be bound together by a strong, uninhibited web 2.1(beta) business sense. Wordpattern will provide free software, free documentation, free consulting and free services to the world.

We’re in for a heck of a ride – and won’t let anybody stop us now!

Code is Poetry.
Text is Pattern.

yours humbly,

The Wordpattern Community
