This is an old archive episode from the Joomla Juice Podcast, dated 23rd Feb 2006.

Peter Russell interviews Chris Adams, the Chief Executive Officer of Rochen in 2006. The guys talk about the state of Joomla and Rochen back in 2006.

At this point in time, Joomla has just forked from the Mambo project, 5 months prior to this interview. People we thinking that Joomla was going to be a one month wonder and most people would have moved away from it after this point, but 5 months later, the traffic to the Joomla sites had doubled and didn't look like anything was going to stop it. Quite clearly history has shown the power of open source with the Mambo project closing up about a year later.
