The Future of Movable Type and Your Business
New York City October 18th, 2012

The 2012 Idea Exchange is a chance for developers, designers, and clients to get together to learn from each other, discuss new projects, hear about the latest offerings in MT5.2, and gain detailed insight on where Movable Type is going, and what our plans are for helping to grow and support the Movable Type business in North America, Europe, and South America.


  • The CEO's or Presidents of major Japanese Movable Type partners will be presenting their current offerings in Japan and be looking for partner to help ready these offerings for North America. The CEO of GENOVA and the CEO of Alfasado will be in attendance.
  • An overview of other offerings currently being made ready for North America.
  • Movable Type premier support partner 601AM will be presenting a case study on a challenging Movable Type implementation, sharing with you the details on how they solved the client's unique challenges.
  • Movable Type will have the lead developer, Yuji, on hand for discussions. Six Apart CEO Nob Seki will be attending, as will EVP Product Tsukasa Sugita, and others from the Movable Type team.
  • I will present an overview of the new Movable Type business strategy so that your business can take advantage of the great things to come.
  • We also plan on having an additional speaker or two that will be from outside of the MT community.

I am listening in on the streaming host by Maarten’s site:

Some useful ideas being presented, and I would love see the list of Japanese plugins that have been translated that is being handed out.

The streaming is not done well. We should simply hear the author’s voice and watch the what is on the computer screen. We don’t need a video of the actual presentation.

As I understand it, the event has gone great. I hope soon to develop to the point that you do more of these events and possibly in smaller countries like Bulgaria :)
