A Requiem for RedDot: Goodbye to one of the Old Guard.
In practical terms, the Web Site Management offering is in a death spiral. The most telling indicator is a near complete evaporation of its North American and UK partner channels. There are fewer and fewer people around who know how to keep a RedDot implementation stable, let alone healthy. That’s irrevocably bad.
I remember sitting through a RedDot demo at Intranets 2001. Back then, it was called RedDot because there was literally a little red dot next to anything you could edit on the screen. (Ektron did the same thing a couple years ago, but with a little blue dot – I thought was pretty funny.)
