Seeing how I can bring the syndication bus into full effect for ds106. I think it can happen, I just pull my Flickr and delicious posts tagged ds106 into ds106.us using FeedWordpress—and then associate them with my admin account on the ds106.us site. And that’s the trick, I can do it pretty easily cause I am admin, but how might others? Need a way to both automate and allow folks to opt-in. This could be awesome—in the meantime, check out my activity feed on my BuddyPress profile featuring all my posts from various social networks for anyone to see. It needs to be styled better, but I think this would be powerful for creating community and a strong sense of both organized distributed design.
Update: Turned off syndication from my Flickr and Delicious feeds for ds106 tag until I think through how to filter them out from the front page, but it worked like a charm. Also, I forgot to mention that the BP Posts on Profile plugin does this for all posts by user, and is quite clean and no activity stream to worry about. Hmmm. You can see this plugin in action here, I really like this feature. What’s more, Ron Rennick‘s BP Blog Author Link makes the directory that much more useful and central.
In the meantime, enjoy the Renaissance of animated gif images:
