Posts made to twitter.com/planetlotus will no longer show up on the main PL page. Instead it will now be use to post PlanetLotus content to those following... on twitter. If you've been following planetlotus you've probably noticed "What's Hot" posts have been there for about a week now, other info on PL will be posting over time, events, downloads, etc.
ReTweets or RT: You can now retweet any blog post that shows up on the front page by clicking phone looking icon.
The EST/EDT timestamp is gone. In it's place is an abbreviated twitter style 'about x hours ago' value. (mouse over the abreivated value to see more detail). This new timestamp will be propigated around the site over time.
Have you seen http://www.planetbook.org? It's been a fun side project to help readers find a good book. It aggregates posts from the 228 highest ranked Amazon book reviewers and posts them to the front page and twitter. I'm waiting for Thomas "Duffbert" Duff, currently ranked #22, to do a review of the review site. How awesome would that be! As of now there are 1,344 followers following http://twitter.com/planet_book not a bad start.
And then there is http://planetsharepoint.org I'm sure many are aware of its existence however I hardly ever talk about it. As you can tell it's more vanilla then PL and in a way will be over time the showcase for Contributr a product'ized version of the planet concept.
Let me know below. Community ideas only make the site better.
UPDATES: just fixed the url for.. http://www.planetbook.org Another reason why going with com is good, just because its the defacto domain.
