Much Ado About Nothing

Mollom galore

So, Dries and Benjamin put out t-shirts to all those who contributed in a way to Mollom. If all went well, and Belgian postal services did their job, a package with a tee would be waiting for me at home right now. A big thank you!

Over the past days, there were some hiccups with the plugin not working that well. First, crack groups of rogues still get the better of the plugin. I also got spam in the moderation queue on a daily basis. The service is still under development and strategies are being devised to counter these attacks as we speak. Second, during debugging rounds in the past days, I encountered some anomalies against the API which will be fixed in the next version.

Yesterday, Dries, Benjamin discussed, amongst other things, Mollom over dinner in Antwerp. How s/w/could the service evolve in the future? I came home with a lot of ideas and todo’s. Bottomline is that the current version of the plugin is only the start.

I know, Mollom news isn’t what most of my regular readers interests. I got several remarks from people who rather like the lifelogs, the photos, the videos or the links. So I’m working on a plan to move all the techy stuff, not just Mollom, to it’s own seperate personal techblog in due time.
