About the Word

My name out in the real world is Laurence Hart. After years of consulting in the Content Management space, and a tour as the Chief Information Officer at AIIM, I am now the Content Management Strategist at Alfresco which allows me to work with organizations to help them evaluate their strategy as it relates to their Content Management efforts. The role active in the industry, working with others to help forge a future for the industry where Content Management is simpler, almost an “evangelist” you might say.

I’ve been an Information Professional for almost 20 years and have worked with Alfresco, Documentum, SharePoint, Box, Nuxeo, and many other solutions. I have led a wide-range of efforts including content digitization, Records Management, BPM, and Collaboration for both the commercial and public sectors. More recent efforts were focused on when and how best to move Information Management to the “cloud”. For more details, check out my profile on LinkedIn.

The Word is a place to learn and share thoughts about Content Management and the entire Information universe. Other thoughts, concerns, and rants will be added as well as the feeling moves me. I am writing for the Information Professional, though some of my topics will resonate to a wider audience.

Everything here represents my own opinion unless clearly stated otherwise.  I do this on my personal time for own satisfaction.

Why Word of Pie? It all stems from a college nickname. The full story, and the complete nickname for that matter, isn’t something for polite company. If you know me, ask me over a couple of pints and I might share it with you.

Note: I do moderate comments and will try to either post and/or respond to every comment. Any comments that seem more like a pitch for services/products than furthering the discussion will be removed.

I am on Twitter: @piewords. It isn’t purely technology as I throw off-topic thoughts out there as well.

Disclaimer and Rights

My basic, no questions asked, policy is incorporated in the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License (or you can look at the detailed legal version). Essentially, you can quote me all you like if you give me credit and don’t charge for it. If you are going charge someone to read my quote, get my permission first. I’m pretty agreeable and will probably just want to read what you wrote after publishing.

When in doubt, ask me.

Keeping the FTC Happy

In order to keep the FTC off of my back, here is a general disclaimer.  I receive no compensation for anything that I write unless I specifically state otherwise.  Most reviews are things that I am reading or picking-up anyway.
