I've wanted to do this since Planet Lotus launched, organize all the wonderful resources available out there in the Lotus Community, the projects, websites, conferences, people, companies, products, you name it, everything and anything... Lotus.
Introducing the Planet Lotus Wiki or planetlotus.org/wiki/ or for a couple minutes during install, Lotipedia.
Worse case, this thing goes empty for years, best case, we have a community built and maintained road map to all that is available to those in our field.
To make things insanely straightforward the site is a generic build of MediaWiki, the same wiki software that drives Wikipedia.
Lastly, if anyone out there is looking to make this their baby, and would like elevated rights, let me know.
Lastly II, maybe this could be the first entry... http://www.timtripcony.com/dennis/elenchus.nsf
UPDATE: I will be shortening the url's used by the site over the next fiew days, making planetlotus.org/wiki/index.php/Tim_Tripcony this... planetlotus.org/wiki/Tim_Tripcony.
UPDATE II: URL's have been shortened so planetlotus.org/wiki/Tim_Tripcony will work and all links like it will be permanent.
Every once and a while a video smacks you in the face. A friend of mine is putting on a charity event, the focus, Roller Racing at a local bar. It was nice that he included in the invite... "google it", so I did. This was the first video I watched and goosebumps were a fly'n. This video rocks, the music and the intense counter culture that I remember vividly from my OR visit a couple years ago. I truly would like to make the event this Sunday. If you live in the Boston area and want to show off your spinning skills visit Bike Dirty.

Blogs have arrived on Planet Lotus. The blogs are based on WordPress MU (multi user) and to start things off I've added 100+ blog themes to choose from.
Start yours here: planetlotus.org/blogs/
The FAQ and rules:
- Be Good.
- New blogs will not show on the front of Planet Lotus. You will need to submit your blog in order to have it appear.
- Beta? - Yes, until the wrinkles are wordpress'd out.
- Widget support - Yes
- Themes to choose from - 100+
- Example blog url... planetlotus.org/blogs/yourblog/
- Size limit - I'm not sure what it should be so the default of 10mb will stay and we'll see how that rides out. If you need more ask.
This sounds simple enough.
