It’s been a week almost. But things are moving meanwhile :-).
These days we’ve been busy with things that should have interesting results:
- Set up the new Macuarium live-events-coverage blog at http://www.macuarium.net/wordpress (and gathered teams for the multichannel coverage of Apple’s WWDC event next 11th through blog, forum and iChat).
- Final-tested three different gallery software options (we’ll probably settle for Gallery 2, so I’m busy setting up modules and thingummies… wear your hard hat if you visit http://www.macuarium.net/gallery).
- Set up, seeded and started work on a draft wiki at http://macuarium.wetpaint.com . It won’t be fast, but I really hope it will work. We’re planning on building online, free, continuously-updated guidebooks on a few issues, and this is the easiest (since we already wrote the previous version of the book and published it). Once it gathers speed, I’ll be out looking for sponsors. And after the first one, we should build quite a few. Over time :-D.
- Talked with a couple of new agencies that want to represent our growing network of tech sites :-). That is, Macuarium.com and iPhoniac.com, since this little blog is nowhere on the radar. Hopefully it should rid me of that type of work (ad sales and administration), since only this week I’ve had to meet with a couple too many.
- Drafted the redesigned Macuarium site (with Joomla 1.5, we’ll be able to go a bit more Web 2.0 from the ground up).
- Watched as our admin collaborators got our web server as ready as possible (it’s got some Apache trouble) for the upcoming mass traffic. Yes, the WWDC event again.
And yes. Health trouble in the family. Doesn’t count as work and isn’t fun, but it’s kept me busy too…
