Work on a new blog for the Joburg Centre for Software Engineering is going well. The cache of articles that I said I wanted to build in preparation for the launch of the site are progressing well.
Domain name is registered, template selected, and now we’re doing a bit of customisation and branding of the site.
Launch will be in July, when the students are back from the winter holidays. Of course I'll invite you to view the site and give some input on what you love/hate/despise/like etc about it.
Another social blogging project?
Later this year I’m going to start work on another big blogging for social change project. It will be something similar to the OneLove campaign, but bigger in scope, and will possibly work out as a network blog.
Details are still being ironed out. But the wonderful thing is that the issue is not whether the project will get done, or if I will be involved, but when it would be best to get started on it for a February launch.
I’m sooo excited! It’s the kind of work I enjoy – where I get to use tech to make a difference.
Teenage friend back in the picture
Meanwhile, another old friend contacted me through Facebook to say “howzit” and “will you friend me on Facebook?”
We were really close when I was in my late teens/early twenties, but life was not kind to her during that time and she moved away for a new beginning. I guess I became a part of her life that she needed to forget, so we didn’t keep in touch.
Now she’s back, and I guess, we’ll have to see if we can be more than Facebook friends or not. I'm looking forward to it.
