The great Harvard-Blog Diaspora (postponed)


The Berkman diverted the exodus of Manila upsetters from Winers flagship and cutover to a sparkley new WordPress MU server. Hooray!

I have managed to cut the old manilla blog over to the spanky wordpress and worked with Hal through some backend XML import issues. Minimal brainpower involved (on my part) and Hal did the heavy lifting. Performance has definitely improved but the migration has introduced an astonishing amount of spelling errors, bad grammer, punctuation, bad logic and poor content. Migrations eh? Bah!

WordPress is defaulting to open anonymous comments on posts and google indexing. We’ll see what happens, anyone want to put money on when the harvesters and spambots arrive? (Yes, I do force a logon to comment).

I am student at the Harvard extension school. During the Spring 2006 semester, i am taking lstue120 and one of the professors, Tim, stated that blogs were given additional credit. Believe me, i need it! I am also taking musie145 and hope to make any related posts on that classes blog.
