However, 1.000.000 is still a freaking big number (11110100001001000000 in base 2 even bigger :-) and we should use this for marketing our product. Apart from the usual suspects there are not that many web based solutions that come even close to one tenth. Big proprietary CMS vendors do very well if they sell 10.000 per year.
All the reason to celebrate, for example by making
For sourcing, we can use the influence, people and money of the DA (if they would be in on this), ask companies to work on this pro bono, preferably together and have a fund raiser; "One tenth for one"; 1/10 of a monetary unit of your country per Drupal install you maintain. A dime per install per American, 10 eurocents per Drupal for EU’s, 1/10th of a Rand in South Africa etc. This shows that we are truly global and if people do not donate 10 cents but 10 dollars per install for example (we should hint to that, especially to the cheap Dutch :-) we could raise a bit as well, more than 1/10th of a million if played well.
What are your thoughts, how should we proceed? Please follow up on BAM on g.d.o.
So once this flat Metro and iOS7 design is so 2013 we will have a new design hype to follow. Here is an idea. 3D icons, with heavy over the top shadows of the icon and in the icon itself. The shadow of these icons and in the icons will change based upon the direction the source of light. So when you rotate the device the light sensor will see that the light comes from another direction and icons rendering of the icons shadow will change.
Cool idea? And yes, in the dark you will still have your flat iOS design :-)
UPDATE: there is a patent of Apple that describes something like this.
I also own an Apple TV3. And to be honest, it was gaining dust. Yes it runs iOS, but you can not jailbreak a TV3. And default the Apple TV 3 is rather limit in use.
This is the reason that an Apple TV2 (can be jailbroken) is about 1.5-2 times as expensive on the second hand market. The device can do less, has lower specs, worse connections, but can be jailbroken and hence can be used to install a Plex client.
The you start your unsued trailer app (ever used it? really?) and you have nearly full (channels arent working) Plex functionality.
