    Thanks for the prod, Dan. Expect the site up soon, if not today. We’ll be in a bit of a beta mode through August adding final features, and making any necessary changes to the code we may have overlooked, but I think you’ll like what you see. As for blogger, we went with a slightly more sophisticated approach to our site using a great open source content management platform called Drupal. I think you’ll like it.

    Anon 11:08: How would I know any of that? They don’t have a Web site! Heh, heh. Well, we’ll see what they come up with. Jeff is promising a Drupal-powered platform, which suggests a high degree of audience participation.
