Project Management as SaaS, Programmable Wikis and more

Two new interview podcasts to share (recorded by me and Ted) for the Bungee Line:

Nate Bowler, CTO of @Task

@task (or AtTask) is a Utah-based tech company providing a comprehensive, web-based project and portfolio-management package delivered in both a SaaS and on-premise model with a very rich web API set. We talked with Nate about the evolution of their web services design and @task's future product plans in light of the market opportunities presented by the availability of the increasing number of 3rd party programmable web services.

Steve Bjorg, Founder and CTO of MindTouch

Prior to founding MindTouch Steve worked in advanced strategies at Microsoft focusing on distributed systems and web services. We talked with Steve about the MindTouch platform, its rich set of web APIs and the implications of a programmable wiki. MindTouch goes beyond providing open source wiki collaboration and content management - it's delivering a leading edge application integration and development platform called MindTouch Deki. Michael Coté, an industry analyst with RedMonk (analyst firm) picked up on both the podcast interview and news of the latest release of MinTouch Deki.

Hey Alex, thanks for the pointer. My org just got @task after the non-dev team bailed on Jira and the dev team bailed on central desktop :)

We switched from @task to The reason is lack of flexibility and email integration.

Hej Alex, I found your own and came along to see the outcomes of your moving. Very well then! There is so much to learn from your posts, that is just great. Where do you work, since you left Microsoft? The podcasts seem to be cool, too. I´ll check them out.
