Since my last post, I’ve decided that I really ought to do as much as possible with other people’s code. It seems to me that “Don’t Repeat Other People” ought to be considered almost as important as “Don’t Repeat Yourself.”
The fact is that WordPress has been a quite serviceable platform for me so far, and I don’t really want to expend a bunch of effort writing a whole new blogging platform. I don’t have much reason for doing so, to be honest, and I will probably be of more use to more people if I build my new platform using other people’s components as much as possible
At present, I’m of the mind to set up some sort of pub-sub server and to use that to loosely join a bunch of different software platforms into a symbiotic ecosystem of parts.
