Blog api's

I've been playing with flickr and am quite taken at the way you can post photos direct from flickr into your blog, Clever use of an api.

Over at my other blog I've been musing about multiuser blog software and the joys of exporting and importing posts from blog providers - something I'd like to do, as well as the professional need to come up with a multi user blog solution that has ldap integration and doesn't suck in some disgusting way and is free

odd ...

A long time ago, just before I moved to Australia my resume was picked up by what was then webct, who phoned me up to talk (in very vague and hypothetical terms) about my perhaps working for them.

Well nothing came of it, I moved to Oz, did things and then today, I get an email from blackboard, who now own webct, asking me if I was still vaguely interested.

What's odd is that they sent it to the jnd[at]apex[dot]net[dot]au account that i've hardly ever used and is set up to forward to my wife's mailbox. Even more bizarre is that the apex account dies tomorrow, since we've given them the flick ...

I thought about posting this on my other blog which is linked to from my resume website but thought better of it - you never know it might be (another) change of direction

I took this in August 1998. If you've looked at my other blog you'll know that I'd lost the picture.

Fortunately I've now found it, along with a few others from the Turkey trip.
