The Web Photos Pro site is run mostly on WordPress, which I didn’t even realize until I saw the “Powered by WordPress” link. Great example of WP used as a CMS for an entire site. (The software looks cool too.)
A hack for a LDAP enabled WordPress 1.5. More and more large organizations with external authentication are using WordPress internally.
Call the media bluff on HD.
I’m at the web spam summit and it’s going pretty well. I think some excellent things will come out of this. I wouldn’t want to be a spammer these days.

Eric Meyer on WordPress 1.5, “A good tool is now a great tool, and I can only imagine where it will go from here.” A nice look at things from a developer and tweaker perspective.

“It’s beautiful, light-weight, easy to manage, and by goodness it’s got so many features I feel like a spoiled rich kid with 20 Ferraris, 10 Lambos, 5 Lotus Elises, and a spit-shined Bentley. This thing is powerful, yet compact. Don’t even get me started on their plugins systems.” And that marks the 300th ping on the announcement entry.
coldforged Image Headline Plugin gives you really nice shadows, I’ll have to check out how he did that.
The Web Spam Squashing Summit announcement has quite a bit of spam on it. Unfortunate, but an excellent illustration of the problem.
