Lifeyo is an incredible content management system for newbies

Lifeyo is an incredible content management system for someone just trying to put together their first website. The whole system is very web2.0, but they manage to pull off this design cliché in a way which is actually useful -- all the dialogs are sensibly laid out, and the large fonts and bright colors actually make the system less intimidating to use. Their business model is also...

Google discontinuing FTP support for Blogger blogs

Love it or hate it, Blogger was the tool that really brought blogging into the mainstream. Once upon a time, the only way to have your blog hosted on your own domain was to use Blogger as the content management system, but then have it use FTP to push HTML pages to your web host.

We ultimately decided to tackle setting up a LAMP testing ground. This will certainly not be necessary for...

Drupal 5, a major update to a major player

The field of Content Management Systems (CMS) mirrors what my grandfather always said, "Cream rises to the top."
