The new BuddyPress site is up and includes the key ingredients of an open source project: mailing list, bug tracker, and SVN. No official release of anything yet, but if you’re interested in following the development you should join the mailing list. The site itself is, of course, powered by WordPress.
March is almost over, but email-wise I’m just getting started. Between the travel, conferences like SxSW and WordCamp, the 2.5 release, and the wisdom tooth stuff I’ve got stuff backed up even from Febuary. I’m back home this week so I’ll be doing as much catch-up as possible. If you get a response to an old email from me, that’s why.
Programmer’s Toolbox Part 3: Consistent Hashing. It would be interesting if something like this could be folded into the currently random slave server selection for HyperDB.
A few pictures of day 2 of WordCamp; lots of Texas clouds, which are the prettiest in the world.
The talk this morning at WordCamp Dallas was quite enjoyable. The audience here is very sharp and on-point, there was a ton of participation and great questions. They also had delicious Rudy’s BBQ for lunch, which I nibbled at as much as I could. Also (roughly) concurrent with the talk we released WordPress 2.5. Funnily because I kept the edit screen for the announcement open from stage the concurrent editing protection prevented anyone else fom publishing the post! Andy told me after I was done and I pushed the button, but it’s good to know the feature works. 🙂
First day of WordCamp in Frisco, TX.
MyBabyOurBaby.com is a baby scrapbooking site built on WordPress MU. They were written up in Mashable a few weeks ago, surprised it hasn’t gotten more coverage. It’s a good example of what MU is capable of, joining Edublogs, AllthingsD, and Chickspeak. Any other awesome MU-powered sites you’ve seen recently?

I’m looking forward to WordCamp Dallas next week. I’m in Houston getting my wisdom teeth out on Monday, but I’m hoping to be back at full-speed for the conference.

Stuff White People Like’s Christian Lander: The Heeb Interview, a short interview with the fellow behind the now-famous SWPL (hosted on WordPress.com, naturally), which has already spawned copycats.
Met Richard Yoo, had mexican food and drinks with friends, and wandered around Rice into a pie fight.
