As you might have noticed, I’ve switched Davos Newbies from Manila to WordPress. It’s a work in progress, so do bear with me in case there are any glitches.
Although I’ve moved from Manila after five-and-a-half years, I still feel a huge debt to Dave Winer, who developed the software and who was the original person to encourage me (and so many others) to weblog. It now seems an utterly obvious thing to blog about creating the Davos program, but Dave saw the potential of that years before anyone else.
Dave has been a constant support for both Davos Newbies and myself. When the time came for me to move, he swiftly moved to help me with the transition. Thanks, Dave.
I can’t say moving from Manila to WordPress is the simplest thing in the world. Fortunately, Jason Levine, who wrote a clever bit of software for just this task, kindly offered to do the crucial exportation for me. We’ve never met, never corresponded before. Another great example of the continuing kindness of the blogosphere.
