The Future of WPMu

There has been a lot of discussion about the future of WPMu with the coming merge of WPMu and WP, and I understand there are concerns and issues all around.

WPMu as OCW Platform….a solution?

Building the Syndication Bus: Plugin Ingredients

While at Duke, UVA, and more recently the University de Mayaguez—I’ll post about that event as soon as I finish traveling—the most common question people had for me was how can they design/build the “Syndication Bus” for WPMu.

This past Sunday I had the good fortune to be invited as part of a podcast to discuss using WPMu in educational institutions with a great group of educators primarily based in the UK.  It was a fun discussion, and I really liked hearing about the particular uses and challenges of blogging in the K-12 […] Continue reading

Syndicatin’ Welfare: UMW Blogs’ Syndication Framework on the Cheap

Can you you feel the bass and guitar kick in, and hear the tempo surely rise? I knew that you could!
I know that it’s evil
I know that it’s got to be
I know I ain’t doing much
Doing nothing means a lot to me

WPMu Privacy Options and Sitewide Feeds-a question…

I’m in the process of writing up the syndication hub we got up and running on UMW Blogs, and I think it is as close as we’ve come to the mythical Eduglu. In getting my thoughts together to give a detailed overview of our setup a question has come up that I was wondering if […] Continue reading
