Lyceum – a multi-user blog solution?

A couple of weeks back (March 1st, to be exact) boingboing posted about a new multi-user blogging service called Lyceum (developed by  I just got around to downloading the nightly build and reading the FAQ, and I have to say if it delivers on what it promises this could be a welcome alternative to the WordPress Multi-User nightly build nightmare.

You can see their demo site to try a test installation here.

    Did you create a database table for your lyceum install and link it to your Lyceum install? Take a look at my step-by-step installation guide for Lyceum, as well as my tutorial for creating a mySQL database for Lyceum. if these are no helpful, let me know.

    Good luck …
