Getting to grips with the Tridion core service in Powershell
Luckily there are people around who still enjoy the command line more than other fancy tools. Dominic Cronin is a big fan of the windows Powershell and this time he uses it in combination with the Tridion Core Service. Especially since you can’t use Windows Powershell in combination with TOM.NET. Enjoy!
PS: On Dominic’s advice do take a look at the pre-made Powershell Modules created by Peter Kjaer

Tridion Workflow
It seems Chris Summer’s revelations about the new Workflow have started some nice discussions. A lot of people want to give workflow a proper chance and meaning in the workflow discussions and implementations.
Just to make my point I’d like to work with images. Looking at the main image of this post is what everyone hopes workflow will do to their content flow in the organization. Making every piece of content go into the appropriate lane and reach the destination without delay.
But, a workflow implementation can very easily cause the opposite (see image below). Content is waiting for actions by someone, which can easily become a big 

traffic jam of content. At this point solving the jam is more important than editing and reviewing each piece of content. This is usually the moment Workflow “temporarily” gets disabled or simplified.
Anyway, the future brings new hope! Now read some of the other blogs posted about Workflow:
Dominic Cronin:- Will bundles be the saviour of Tridion workflow?
Alvin Reyes:- Aint Got No (SDL Tridion) Workflow… Blues?
Chris Summers:- Why we don’t use SDL Tridion Workflow
Robert Curlette:- Workflow Dreamin’ 
Happy reading!
