SoFoBoMo status update
Ok, here’s the current skinny:
- I have renewed the domain registration for sofobomo.org for three years. I figured last year I’d give it a one year whirl and see if anything came of SoFoBoMo. This time around, it’s clear that there are a fair number of people interested, so I’ll take advantage of the lower rate and extend the registration for longer than one year. Yes, this implies that unless SoFoBoMo craters really badly this coming year, we will continue beyond just this next year. Or something.
- Bernie Sumption will be once again doing the website work. Bernie says he can have on-line signup on sofobomo.org in January. So we’ll be doing signup there, and not repeated last years messy “leave a comment on this post” thing. Good news!
- It looks very much like we will be able to host pdf files on sofobomo.org this year, so folks won’t have to go through the whole second party hosting (issuu, etc.) again this year. More news on this later, I expect.
- Based on feedback from everyone and taking into consideration giving Bernie a bit more time to get all the website ducks in a row, the fuzzy month for SoFoBoMo 2009 will run from the start of May through the end of June.
- It would be nice if folks who participated last year (both those who finished and those who didn’t) who were inclined would write up brief snatches of text (say, three paragraphs or so) along the lines of “What I got from participating in SoFoBoMo 2008” which we can host on the SoFoBoMo.org website, on a “Why you should consider participating” page.
