## The VIPO Program

Open Source Project owners have a hard time finding contributors to their projects, nor can they perform all the functions necessary for a project to become a success. Project Owners arenโ€™t bug hunters, marketers or copywriters, nor should they be. 

In an aim to make these FREE services provided by [Utopian.io](https://join.utopian.io/) and its community of global talent easier to access, weโ€™ve created the **Very Important Project Owners** Club. Members of the VIPO Club get exclusive access to a growing set of tools, services and professionals to aid their efforts on [Utopian.io](https://join.utopian.io/).

We received dozens of applications for membership in the VIPO and the number is growing. Seeing project owners engage with our Community Managers and with each other on Discord is a sign that this service is more than necessary in the Open Source ecosystem.

## Translations Category Developments

### The DaVinci collaboration

[Utopian.io](https://join.utopian.io/) has collaborated with the DaVinci initiative on Steem to support the translation of Open Source projects. We have put up a new front-end specifically for this, which can be found at https://davinci.utopian.io. This last week, we also implemented the back-end features to support the site.

A lot of work went into creating quality questionnaires and defining the guidelines and policies for the translations workflow. In the last week, the [Utopian.io](https://join.utopian.io/) core team worked closely with the DaVinci initiative to finalize the collaboration the framework in which this program will work.

### Welcome @rosatravels and @jmromero!

We have a new community manager for the Translations category, @rosatravels, who is now working in liason with the DaVinci initiative. Together with @jmromero will be interacting with the [Utopian.io](https://join.utopian.io/) community and ensuring smooth operations in the Translations category.


## [Utopian.io](https://join.utopian.io/) V2 Previews

Our team is working hard to bring the next iteration of [Utopian.io](https://join.utopian.io/) to you. This week, we have some more sneak peeks into the new Utopian V2 front-end that's currently being developed!

## Community Activities and More

### Open Source Radio Show

The Open Source Radio Show has been going smoothly and many valuable insights were shared over the last two weeks. Due to its success and a need for more interaction within it, we have decided to expand it to 2 hours, up from the original 1 hour timeframe.

To catch up with what's happening, read the last [pre-show announcement](https://steemit.com/utopian-io/@jedigeiss/episode-3-of-the-utopian-io-open-source-radio-show-wednesday-at-7pm-utc).

### [Utopian.io](https://join.utopian.io/) Edu Series: Development

The @utopian.edu account published yet another informative video tutorial and this time it's about submitting high quality contributions in the **Developments** category.

View the video tutorial: [Utopian.io Edu Tutorial Series: Submitting Excellent Development Contributions](https://steemit.com/utopian-io/@utopian.edu/utopian-io-edu-tutorial-series-submitting-excellent-development-contributions)

### [Utopian.io](https://join.utopian.io/) Innovation Trail: Integrated IBM Watson

The [Utopian.io](https://join.utopian.io/) developer team has been busy implementing and fine-tuning the IBM Watson AI code for the [Utopian.io](https://join.utopian.io/) Innovation Trail. The trail is now smarter and more accurate at filtering potential posts.

In addition the max vote for @steemstem has been increased  to a ** 30% relative vote!!**

### People of Utopian - imwatsi & knowledges

The last two weeks saw the release of two editions of our People of Utopian publication, featuring two of our own Community Managers.

[People of Utopian #3](https://steemit.com/utopian-io/@utopian-io/people-of-utopian-3-imwatsi): @imwatsi - a creative writer, passionate about content, Open Source, and the monetization of attention through cryptocurrencies

[People of Utopian #4](https://steemit.com/utopian-io/@utopian-io/people-of-utopian-4-knowledges): @knowledges - a 24-year-old Computer Engineer in Nigeria, @curie community curator, and an autodidact with an endless thirst for knowledge in software, hardware and conceptual development of technological solutions

Minor Correction
You have a minor misspelling in the following sentence: <blockquote>We have a new community manager for the Translations category, @rosatravels, who is now working in liason with the DaVinci initiative.</blockquote> It should be <i>liaison</i> instead of <i>liason</i>.

Everything is moving so fast that we hardly keep up with you guys! Thanks for all the great efforts. I have applied as a Translator for Utopian + DaVinci. We have waited for a long time for the reopening of the translation category and I feel confident that this time it will work perfectly ;)
