Mises.org goes open source

October 17, 2007 by

The incredible popularity of the Mises Institute’s website is due mainly to the great content it contains, but no one would know about all that content without the software behind it. While I wrote the content management system for Mises.org, I couldn’t have done it without the ideas and sample code provided by the developer community. In recognition of this, I will be making much of the website available as open-source projects, beginning with the DotTag tagging framework. If you’re a .Net developer, you’re welcome to use the code, or join the project and contribute to its development.

For future projects and updates, be sure to subscribe to the Mises Tech blog.

Dear Sir,

There are some translations of austro-libertarian tradition (Mises and Rothbard in first place) in Portuguese all posted in the blog: http://acao-humana.blogspot.com/

Congratulations and thanks!

For license geeks, interesting/nice that you’re releasing under the just OSI-approved MS-PL

“Pardon my interference in this blog but this is my fight to breathe like writer, although me autodenomine worse of the world by the results obstenidos in veitipico the years in which me meti in this to write without more formation than my liking by the reading and my experiences in the life. I hope that somebody that reads this decides to my Web and to him I will be been thankful extremely, because that is what I persecute, that reads somebody once in a while to me. Thanks to have dedicated these minutes to me.”

Thus says babelfish. I babelfished his site as well, read a couple of the stories. They’re not terribly libertarian in nature; there’s a strong anti-capitalist train of thought.

So, I guess to supplement the poor, ignored article to which these comments are attached,
“The incredible popularity of the Mises Institute’s website” has led to a shameless unrelated promotional campaign to be done *by hand* by an anti-capitalist Barcelonan writer. Sure, it’s not as exciting as open source software — which really is admittedly exciting — but news nonetheless. A success marker, of sorts.

David, if not for the fact that I’ve spent the last couple dozen years avoiding Microsoft programming technologies, I’d be involved as soon as I hung up this post. Maybe I will yet, if I ever get into .NET .

What I would really like to see is mises.org exposing some of its data in ways that helps other developer extend mises.org. To start, nice XML file somewhere that is a dump of all mises.org/media MP3s… perhaps some way to get this already exists. I see that the latest media has an RSS feed… Id like to see and RSS feed of the whole thing

years ago I wrote program that scraped the media section and downloaded and organized every media file, which i then burned into a CD and distributed to friends… made intellectuals of us just a quickly and pleasurably as humanly possible I’d like to think. You just can’t beat working out or going for a jog listening to Murray or Salerno or Hulsmann or Reisman…

And then i got an accoutn from discountasp.net, and to experiment i scraped the site again and loaded the links in a separate database and thought about building a website around it that made it easier to search, write reviews, and rate the various lectures… So i think if mises.org makes it easier for others to extend the site/etc… that would be cool.
