Instapaper: I came across this service via Techeme and was impressed with the ease of use. Although I barely ever have to “read something later”, one could use Instapaper to quickly and easily bookmark sites, blogs or news items for later reading which could then be cleaned up. Signup is incredibly easy and they provide you with a bookmarket to use. Would you use something like Instapaper? I wonder how they would monetize it?

Prologue, the WordPress.com theme that mimics Twitter like functionality has undergone a series of updates. The updates are as follows: The front page now shows a stream of recent updates instead of one update per user Pages now have their own template and look much better Avatars are only shown once for sequential posts by the same author (front page and tag pages) Post titles are no longer empty, they are generated based on the beginning of each post Works out of the box for WordPress.org 2.3.2 Probably the biggest update is the fact that Prologue now works out of the box for WordPress 2.3.2. It didn’t work before because of a function that was used within the author template which wasn’t available in 2.3.2. Because of these updates, Prologue which is now at version 1.2, will have the changes reflected in Subversion (for self hosted WordPress.org blogs) and is […]

The Life Cycle of a Blog Post, From Servers to Spiders to Suits — to You: You compose a new post. You click Publish and lean back to admire your work. Imperceptibly and all but instantaneously, your post slips into a vast and recursive network of software agents, where it is crawled, indexed, mined, scraped, republished, and propagated throughout the Web. Within minutes, if you’ve written about a timely and noteworthy topic, a small army of bots will get the word out to anyone remotely interested, from fellow bloggers to corporate marketers. I could not have described this post (on Wired) better. It is a flash animation that follows a blog post as it makes its way through the Interweb. If you ever wondered how all these disparate peices fit into the blogosphere, this is the food for thought.

Netenberg has released version 2.10.4 r12 of their popular one click install package called Fantastico De Luxe. Fantastico De Luxe is the most widely used application installer throughout the webhosting industry. One of the reasons why it is so popular is that it gives users the ability to skip the process of uploading files and configuring databases and instead, replaces the process with a much simpler one step process. Many WordPress installations have been performed through Fantastico. However, there are a few disadvantages when installing WordPress in this fashion. First, when WordPress releases an update, the folks at Netenberg have to go through the update and add it into the new version of Fantastico. The amount of time this takes can vary, but I believe if the release contains significant security patches, the Netenberg team tries their best to get the update out as soon as possible. Another disadvantage is […]

WordPress Publisher Blog is (going to be) written by various team members at Automattic and their goal is to help all publishers get the most out of WordPress. They will cover features that are often overlooked, highlight plugins that extend WordPress functionality and showcase interesting sites being built with WordPress. They are looking for publishers working on innovative projects using WordPress and would like to field questions from users. From the comment that Raanan left on PressedWords, it would appear that they want to focus on large WordPress installations that are doing lots of custom work and help publishers find the proper resources. A definite daily read!

CoverItlive.com is a free (for now) service that allows you to live blog events and publish items directly to any publishing platform. Now this is pretty commonplace and can easily be done with WordPress (and a few extra plugins) but CoverItLive makes it easier and quicker to embed a variety of media and interact with your readers in real time. There is also an instant replay function, which as inane as that might be, might become handy at some point. Now I barely ever liveblog anything, but I can see a lot of use for this at conferences. Have you liveblogged anything before?
