Obama campaign hits Tumblr

Obama campaign hits Tumblr

One of the bigger reasons that he was elected president in 2008 is because of his use of social media during his campaign.

WordPress 3.1.2 is out

WordPress 3.1.2 is out

Tweet Am I the only one that gets excited when new WordPress updates are released? Even when it’s something as simple as a security fix and doesn’t even offer cool new features? Yeah, I know, I’m a dork. But yeah, WordPress 3.1.2 has been released and yes, it’s security based. No new cool features for us.
