In a recent twitter give and take with Cory Webb, we kicked around some ideas about Joomla Day. He suggested the US just have one Joomla Day, rather than local ones. I suggested explicitly regional ones. Instead of Joomla Day Atlanta, call it Joomla Day Southeast, for example. His concern was how to conter declining attendance at Joomla Days. Bringing in an analogy from retail, I suggested looking at things like combination Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robins franchises. These are complimentary business lines that work well together to bring in foot traffic. Maybe we should have Joomla/Magento Days, or Joomla/Moodle Days or Joomla/SuiteCRM Days. This made me think of Jisse Reitsma and his Yireo extensions that make Joomla and Magento work together. We could have tracks on Magento and Joomla, and have Jisse as the keynote speaker to pull it all together. We could extend the old Reese's commercial as: "Hey, you to Joomla in my Magento", "Hey, you got Magento in my Joomla!".
Then I was thinking of the larger question: Why Joomla?
