Hello all WLUG list subscribers,
Since Peter Reutemann's presentation on Elgg at our last Monday evening
meeting, Peter, Ewen Cummings and John Billings have been working to
establish Elgg on the wlug server.
Elgg is open source social networking software and our case, is another
avenue for WLUG club members to interact online. You can share photos,
create discussion forums, write your own blog, link in your twitter feed,
and follow discussions via RSS. There are many more plugins available and
the site will continue to receive additional features.
The existing wiki is not being superseded by this at all and will still be
the place to document technical and linux related things.
So it is my pleasure to extend this invitation to all members and list
subscribers to check out Elgg, create yourself a profile, upload a photo of
yourself and have a bit of play on the site - maybe even create a group for
your own pet topics and invite others to join.
The following site lists many of the plugins available to the site. If you'd
like to see them added, please contact me, Peter, Ewen or John.
Thanks again to Peter, Ewen and John for setting this up and creating a
there to match the existing server.
Cheers and regards,
