CMS 2.0: are we there yet?

Content Management Systems are one of the oldest application categories on the internet. This presentation will briefly look back on their history -- from the original release of the PHP language itself through Slashcode and innumerable subsequent open source systems -- and will then examine some trends in CMS architecture, and suggest some challenges for the future of this application category.

This presentation will take a high level view of things and won't dwell on technical details, so it should be interesting to decision makers who want some perspective on what "CMS" really means. It should also be interesting to developers of CMS systems and modules, who want to reflect on the nature of their work in a broader context.
