Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).

Radio's direction?

Robert Barksdale asks where Radio is heading - what's in store for version 9.0?

Good question. Over the last year, the UserLanders have fixed the killer bugs (the first-of-the-month bug and the aggregator double-decoding bug), got remote backup working, and Radio generally seems to be pretty stable now, but there haven't been any earth-shakingly cool new features for ages.

That said, Blogger and Movable Type haven't changed a hell of a lot over the last year either. MT came up with TrackBack, which is cool and has enabled things like the LazyWeb and my own Topic Exchange, but doesn't strike me as a giant leap forward.

What features are people looking for in blogging packages? What's left to do? Suggestions please :)
