Old news organizing

Thanks Mark! You can't believe how long I've been procrastinating on doing that task. :-)

need support for PDX11 finance wiki

Hi Mark,

I volunteered to help create a wiki for the PDX11-Finance Network group for community support of Software business development. (BTW- Ted Earnest will be tapped by city | PDC for some stuff on their side around community economic development, per Skip Newberry.)

Anyway, tonight at wiki Wednesday, I have about a half hour I can be there. I want to create a list of desired attributes in a wiki I can send to the group for them to describe their desires of use and content. My intention is that from their response, I can find some wiki types that fit, and begin making the wiki.

Also, I am sure as a new wiki administrator, there are a few tips and tricks that I should know about stepping into the role that might be available.

I don't have much time to time ruminate and explore. I need to bring something close to finished to the table in a month or three weeks, so am hoping for a fast shot from someone who that knows business-world community for wiki constraints.

If you will be at Ace, I will be there, but can't stay long. Which will be a blessing because we would cover ground fast ;-)

Calendar Extension For News

Hey Mark! Saw that you're experimenting around with the calendar extension. Your idea of looking at using it for the news blurbs, as well as events, is a good one. I haven't had the chance to look at different configuration options too carefully. What would be nice is if we could:

config titles (so that the ugly-looking Mycalendar 2011 3 19 changes to something like Saturday | March 19, 2011 or anything else that's more useful than the default)
set up blurb feeds on the front page, as well as sending the full story to an appropriate page destination, maybe with a URL structure something like:
Template:News/Archive/February 2011/Monday | February 28, 2011

What do you think? -Dave Myers
