The Next Social Networks Will Be Powered By WordPress and Movable Type
doubtful - Jason Carreira
I'm still wondering why no one ever talks about Elgg when it comes to creating a niche social network site. - FFing Enigma
Good call on the disparate social graphs. - Hao Chen
Agreed... building a social network right now built on WordPress for our local twitter community -> http://dmtweetup.org - andy brudtkuhl
@Stupid Blogger - Elgg is pretty cool - andy brudtkuhl
Elgg classic was very good, now elgg one is much better. And it was a software intended for social nets, not a converted =) - Arturo Servin from twhirl
Andy Peatling will be talking about BuddyPress (WP-based social network project) at WordCamp SF on Saturday... good timing. - Mark Jaquith from twhirl
It will be interesting to see if BuddyPress can compete in the enterprise social networking space. - Nick Martin
bolog and ne - adolfo foronda
Sarah, I didn't know about the Action Streams plugin, but I liked DavidRecordon website so much that I did my own c# script to generate something like that. http://www.alexsauceda.com - Alex Sauceda
For those of you mentioning Elgg, you may enjoy this older post where RWW interviewed the Elgg founders: http://www.readwriteweb.com/archive... - Sarah Perez

Interested to see Viper's blog on oEmbed. I like to size my videos for a certain width and am not sure how I'd get that with that single url embed. Is this .com or .org? - beersage
You can specify a width in the options, or it'll use your theme's width. You can also do a manual generic embed and manually specify height width. I'm sure his post will cover all this. - Mark Jaquith from email

@om http://www.ilounge.com/index... No way I'm carrying a 10.7 inch screen around with me everywhere. Sounds like an at-home device for most, if true.
I don't carry a laptop around everywhere. I slip an iPhone into my pocket. Unless I'm going swimming or getting married, I can pretty much have an iPhone in my pocket. If it's not pocketable, it might as well be a laptop, as far as portability is concerned. - Mark Jaquith

WTF: It's OK to Expel 16-yo HS Girls Suspected of Lesbianism - http://digg.com/people...
"While we should decry arbitrary private discrimination, it shouldn't be considered criminal. So to answer the title of this link, it's not "OK," but it is certainly a case where the State should not intervene. Private property rights are trump. You don't have to like it, you just have to resist paying men with guns to force the school to operate the way you'd like." - Mark Jaquith

I'm pleased to say the machine I'm working on has been washed in unicorn tears. What's that on yours? Monkey what? Ew, you keep that.
Way to act like #1, Microsoft. - Mark Jaquith

Mark Pilgrim on Accessibility Extremists - http://diveintomark.org/archive...
"" I think it would be wise for people who truly care about accessibility to take a closer look at the so-called “experts” who are participating on their behalf, and to understand exactly what these people are proposing. It’s true that some of their proposals have not been adopted, but it’s not because some cartoonishly monocled villain enjoys being mean to them. It’s because the proposals are insane. "" - Mark Jaquith

Obama: A breathtaking beginning - http://digg.com/politic...
""blind veneration of the market" ? Complete and utter bollocks. Bush said, and I quote: "I've abandoned free-market principles to save the free-market system." That's not veneration of the market, that's veneration of a managed economy, to the detriment of the market. Please don't make Bush the poster boy for free exchange of ideas and goods... he's anything but." - Mark Jaquith

Antarctica is warming faster, according to scientists - http://digg.com/environ...
"I see your "epica.jpg" and raise you one http://biocab.org/Carbon_... According to this, global THAWING is a more accurate term for any increase in global temperatures. Imagine how many lives would be changed if global temperatures went up three degrees and food production dramatically increased (high temperature + high CO2 = plentiful crops)." - Mark Jaquith

"What is more important: Preserving current ice levels (no more, no less), or preserving freedom of choice? It's not a trick question, but it's one you'll have to answer if your environmental goals involve making people change instead of just urging them to change." - Mark Jaquith

Antarctica is warming faster, according to scientists - http://digg.com/environ...
"Ohio used to be a glacier. We'll adapt. Whatever happens, it's going to take a really, really, really, really, really long time to do it. This isn't weather we're talking about, it's climate change. The idea that a hundreds or thousands or tens of thousands of years long process should (or even can) be in any way affected by something as transient as politics is absurd and completely self-absorbed. Do what you think is right... buy a hybrid, buy expensive food at fancy grocery stores, recycle, whatever -- just don't try to drag everyone else into it. Let people live their lives." - Mark Jaquith

"Antarctica's approximately 1,000 seasonal residents were nonplussed. One was heard to remark "BDF, it's still like negative a zillion degrees here. It's not like I can bust out my shorts."" - Mark Jaquith

Caroline Kennedy repeats 'you know' 142 times in interview - Telegraph - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news...
"""So I think in many ways, you know, we want to have all kinds of different voices, you know, representing us, and I think what I bring to it is, you know, my experience as a mother, as a woman, as a lawyer, you know, I've been an education activist for the last six years here, and, you know, I've written seven books – two on the Constitution, two on American politics.""" - Mark Jaquith
Like, you know, that's just the way, you know, people today speak. You know? - Patrick Lightbody
