Subject: [Zope] FYI: Digital Creations secures $12M round of investment

> Hello Zope friends.  At long last we at Digital Creations are able to
> publicly say it: we've closed a $12M round of investment:
> It's out on the newswire now.  We'll start pushing it out more over the
> 24 hours.
> This, needless to say, is a big deal, one that we've worked on really,
> really hard this year.  With the tech market downturn since March, and
> Open Source particularly getting a beating, it's vindicating to get good
> funding from strong partners.  When everyone else was getting wads of cash
> during the go-go times, we were quietly at work, being frugal, making
> making a business case, and being profitable. We're proud to say that we
> our money when money was hard to find.
> Let's put it this way: Open Source business is hardly dead.  It's just
> different, and better.
> What will this mean?  First and foremost, Zope and Digital Creations will
> become very competitive, very quickly, along a number of axes. As the
> PythonLabs move indicated, we are taking aggressive steps to become a
> dramatic force in the worlds of content management, web application
> services, and Open Source leadership.  With this round, our business model
> has been validated.
> As a member of the Zope community, I view this as "the dream delivered".
> Many of us care deeply about this thing we're involved in, and sometimes
> feels like a longshot.  Though this is still a David vs. Goliath, David
> has a slingshot, and a bit of steel in his eye.  Thanks go to the folks
> at DC, to the Zope and Python communities, and to the companies around the
> world that are basing their business on Zope.
> Onward!
