Social News & Planet for MeeGo
Two of the bigger features of maemo.org are the social news and planet, which provide crowd-sourced news ranking and blog aggregation. The push to implement these features in meego.com has been ongoing since the beginning of the year and has finally been deployed. The system was ready for deployment already in the spring but was unfortunately put on hold waiting for the new meego.com infrastructure to be in place. But now the wait is over and we have the system running in http://news.meego.com/ (for full planet see http://news.meego.com/blogs/). We have integrated authentication with MeeGo's LDAP service, so your normal meego.com account should enable you to log in and vote for items. Be sure to check out the news and vote!
MeeGo musicians assemble
Randall Arnold is looking to organize some sort of MeeGo community musical project: I am looking to the MeeGo community for musical talent, which I do know we have. This is for a little project that may or may not turn into anything at all, but I think it's worth a try. Sorry to be secretive, but it's for a surprise for the community at large. Vocalists and players of small, portable instruments welcome. If you've got musical talent, be sure to check out the MeeGo-community mailing list.
