  1. wow thats a lot of peeps for a confrence…anyways i was wondering what you use to place all this content on your blog…do you use just the add blog link? or do you use something like a firefox extension? I just take forever to add stuff in here and modify the code etc. Do you know of any quick way to add youtube content too? Thanks i’ll bookmark this site to check for your reply.

  2. hi hmdice, thanks for visiting.

    actually, i just do it manually using wordpress, including the edit html source function. sometimes i use the blog it function of digg, but that’s rare.

    same with youtube, i just use the code wordpress provided.

    sorry, guess this doesn’t help 🙂


  3. Hi Joey — We’re very excited that you will be joining us in Singapore! The SoP site will be massively revamped by the end of the week. One of the organizers will soon be contacting you about a picture that can be used on the conference site. If you have anything in 300 DPI, it would help them out immensely. Look forward to meeting you in person in January! Aaron
