We’ve been taking breaks at night here in La Paz by playing a bit of Wii Tennis, which is one of the best multiplayer games ever. Barry decided to organize a double-elimination tournament where everyone had to link to the winner. That ended up being me and so they’ve requested this post so they can properly pingback their entries to this one.
I almost forgot to blog it here, WordPress 2.1 is out and everyone should upgrade. We have shiny download buttons. It has been downloaded 52,216 times in about 24 hours. Now the real fun starts in development, for example I just checked in Atom API support to the 2.2 trunk, and other goodies around APIs and syndication.
Wikipedia has decided to nofollow all external links to help offset people spamming the service. In theory this should work perfectly, but in practice although all major blogging tools did this two years ago and comment and trackback spam is still 100 times worse now. In hindsight, I don’t think nofollow had much of an effect, though I’m still glad we tried it.
