Blogging activity on the planet has dwindled (for ages it has
seemed a small planet, ruled by the immortal god-emperor Torsten
Bergmann - HAIL!). Of course there might be many new blogs to add,
eg Pharo-related; I haven't been seeking them out.
I still think a site like this concentrating blog feeds in one
place is a good idea.
To improve focus elsewhere, I'm offering this project (and
others) for adoption. It's very low maintenance. You need a VPS or
server where you can run cron jobs and the Planet Venus python
software. You could also spend time adding new feeds, or merging
such changes from others. The source files are in a darcs repo,
which I can convert to git if you prefer.
Please reply if you're able to take this on. I'll step down as
maintainer at the end of this month, about two weeks from now.
Re: ANN: Planet Squeak & friends available for adoption
The Mighty and Powerful Squeak Board has, in its assembled wisdom at the latest meeting, decreed that we would very much like it if somebody could volunteer to do this. We’re not the greatest group in the world at blowing our own Crumhorn and improving our profile would a Good Thing.
So please, if you’re good at the social media thing and interested in getting more eyeball time for Squeak, consider taking this on.
