Mooooo, WP as CMS
I’m still having a hellified time with del.icio.us’ daily blog posts. I have no idea why I keep getting the error message I described in this post. In any case, yet another mystery to solve.
On another note, I lemminged (is that a word?) and splurged on Moo cards. It was time for me to re-order personal business/calling cards and I couldn’t fathom shelling out
my life savings over CHF200 yet again for plain white ones. My flickr photos are on one side, my contact info on the other. Very, very attention getting. Depending on the type of business you’re in (I wouldn’t recommend these for in “serious” trades such as banking or insurance) you may want to take a chance on Moo cards: they stand out, especially during conferences when folks are swapping contact info like mad.
Yet another note: I’m investigating the option of using WordPress as a CMS for a couple of projects. There are some kick-$$ templates out there, but they’re pricey. Mimbo is an option though. I know it’s a lot to ask, but WP is such a wonderful product that it’s almost a shame that it hasn’t been CMSed already (perhaps it has and I just haven’t found the package). I’d thought about attempting to tweak it myself, that that would require time and patience…neither is in great supply for me right now.
By the way, I got a hold of danah boyd’s “Facebook’s Privacy Trainwreck: Exposure, Invasion, and Social Convergence.” Getting into it tonight.
