Two good articles today on catering to the free, or not. The Guardian’s The end of the age of free and SEO Book’s Who’s opinion matters, from which it is worth sharing:
In my self-appointed role as WP laureate, I have penned a little ditty to celebrate the 1.0 release of BuddyPress.
Ugh, unbelievable that Google is promoting love.com content up the rankings, yuk. Insightful commentary from John Andrews and Aaron Wall.
Yesterday we released a brand spanking new, and completely free, WordPress MU Site Admin Guide!
Well, here’s something that I think/hope you’ll like – professional custom installation of WordPress MU for a fraction of the price and time that you might think it would take. It’s been a while in the making, I can tell you, but I’m hoping that it saves a lot of people time, money and stress […]
Update: They very kindly refunded the extra orders – it would have been nice if they’d done it when we asked (and I hadn’t had to write this) but hey, you can’t really say fairer than that. Oh dear, we were hoping that The Book Depository might be able to stand up to Amazon but […]
Sue’s setting up some amazing live web events at Edublogs. Best of all though, they’re not all about Edublogs, and are open to anyone :) So if you wanna try creating movies with Photopeach, funny avatars or avoiding the pitfals of student blogging – these could well be for you :)
A brief analysis by me as to whether or not WordPress.tv is a good use of the domain, way of giving back or what the WP folks have at their disposal. Would be interested in your thoughts.
A while back I figured it was really about time that I started thinking about and understanding SEO – and, like most people, I went into it with my spurs and 10 gallon-er firmly in place expecting to find mucho dodgyness. However, I’ve been proved very, very wrong.
Our first simple BuddyPress Plugin is now (freely) available, and it allows you to place and configure a simple Terms of service form on your BuddyPress site.
We’ve got a little experiment going over at WPMU.org – if you’re keen on BuddyPress but want that certain extra BuddyPress theme or plugin, just write about it (in any format) and link to the post and we’ll seriously consider it for future free & premium releases! If it works out we’ll do the same […]
A recent WordPress side project that Lol and I put together was Nyora Studio’s new site – the best place to find life drawing in Melbourne classes and workshops. Lots of gallery fun :)
Well, in that case you should mosey on over here and let us know that you’re interested! It’s gonna be a very exciting role, hopefully leading to a very exciting career working with us!
It’s been a devastating, horrific, tragic weekend just around the corner from where we live. Donation details are here – me, I’m going to find a Myers store and stuff a great deal in as they are matching $ for $ donations made in their stores.
I was lucky enough to be interviewed by the LTL podcast last week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. You can catch me sharing my wisdom around here :)
A follow-up to my thoughts on making money with WP the other day – Does WordPress want to shove a GPL shaped stick up my…
Am enjoying this alternative view on climate change at BB.
In case anyone’s interested – here’s how we’re making money with Edublogs these days and also, as implied, why we’re doing it the way we’re doing it.
Three days over 40 in a row is enough to send ya bonkers…

Check out the all new audio and video comments facility at Edublogs. Powered by Riffly – I like it ‘cos it’s so darn simple to use (no registration / login / configuration required). Anyway, go leave a comment, or chuckle at mine.
Am very happy today ‘cos we’ve got final confirmation that Sue Waters (it’s a post now, so it can’t be changed, right :) will be joining Edublogs in a more significant way from January ’09.
Now this is a post that I’ve written in my head plenty of times :) Nice work!
Well, I am truly, truly over copy and paste :)
