Transition in Progress –> LODLAM.net

Well, there are plenty of things afoot and underway, if all a little behind schedule. But the new LODLAM.net site is now up and running, though there are still quite a few bugs to work out. Please bear with me as I’m working on adding much more community functionality by switching over to Buddypress on a multisite version of WordPress, thanks to the suggestion of our friends over at THATCamp HQ.

The good news is that the new setup will allow us to archive previous Summit sites (like this one, which is long overdue), as well as support groups and local sites as well. So for instance, if someone wanted to create melbourne.lodlam.net for local organizing (wink wink @elewhitworth), it should be a fairly straight-forward process to set that up and can all be hosted under the lodlam domain. There’s lots of other good news too, I’m sure.

So, from here on out, please head over to LODLAM.net to add new posts. I’ll keep this site live as an archive, but all posts have been copied over to the new site, so there won’t be any more new posts here.

Dork Shorts and other videos from LODLAM Summit 2011

A look back…

I know it’s taken more than a year to get these all together, but thanks to Uldis Bojars we’ve been able to salvage about half of the Dork Shorts, or two minute talks, that were given at the LODLAM Summit in 2011.  The video is a little bit shaky and even pulling them together was an afterthought.  But it captures the excitement of this meeting and the various experts that were coming together.  Also, thanks to David Weinberger, we’ve got some great interviews with a couple of participants.  I’ve added all of the videos into a Youtube Channel for your reference.
