WordPress MU (Multi-User) and bbPress

A couple of WordPress related sites you might be interested in:

WordPress MU
WordPress MU is a new multi user version of WordPress. I found the site few weeks ago and it looks pretty interesting. I am yet to download and experiment with it, but essentially it is for building communities blogs, blogs about niche subject, clubs, schools etc.

The makers of wordpress have also created their own bulletin board software bbPress which they claim is focused on web standards, ease of use, ease of integration, and speed. bbPress can be integrated with WordPress its definitely worth looking at. I have previously used phpBB but with no coding knowledge found it incredibly difficult to try and make it user friendly for search engines.

I hope to have a bit experiment with both of these soon so will report back. If anyone else has tried please feel free to share what you thought of them.

Spotplex a New Digg Rival?

I bought a “Net” Magazine yesterday and came across a small article about a new site similar to digg so I am giving it a try. The site is called Spotplex all you do is go on to the site put in your url and then insert some java script into your blog. Spotplex sorts popular stories from the internet, but I what I think sounds interesting about it, is that it does this based on page views rather than a reader having to click a button.

Take a look at the site and see what you think, could it rival digg?
