Open Source, Collaborative Rich-Text, Web-Based Editor Almost Available 46

johanneswilm writes: Open source web-based editors such as CKEditor and TinyMCE have been available for more than a decade, and some closed source collaborative editors such as Google Docs have been available since 2007. Creating open source, collaborative, rich-text, web-based editors has proven difficult due to lack of standardization of the lower-level browser features. Now Marijn Haverbeke, the developer behind the popular CodeMirror has started such an editor, called Prosemirror, financed through a crowd-funding campaign. Meanwhile the W3C has installed a task force to rapidly standardize and fix the features needed in browsers to easily create richtext and semantic editors.

if you resist education here (because keeping people dumb has always been a winning approach) they simply import workers form [ITYM "from", you flid] elsewhere or outsource the entire division

And they won't do that anyway because it's cheaper?

Or the missing missing option, bring H1-Bs in.

I vaguely remember seeing a behind-the-scenes thing many moons ago about a UK soap - might have been EastEnders - and it was all notebooks and card indexes.

Oh, and the Homer thing might have been a joke. Some companies give the closest parking spaces as an incentive to the best employees. Homer was lucky he didn't have to drive away from the plant.

He's a blithering imbecile. You can be sure that he's either exaggerating, has totally misunderstood the issue, or is just plain making shit up.

Have Dice found a buyer yet? Hopefully he'll be be in the dumpster along with schwit1 (who might actually be the same person - they're both equally crap in similar ways).
