Albert’s php discussion board is very cool, and might be a good venue to discuss the plans for next year. It is kind of interesting to me to compare the Web log to the forum…definitely a nicer interface than Manila’s, but as Pat says, we could still do a Manila site and achieve basically the same thing all in one place. Frankly, I kind of like that idea simply because it would push my experience with Web log discussion and collaboration. At some point I need to write about the differences pro and con of forums vs. Web logs since that has been a discussion in some circles at my school.
