It's All Yours

Yes, I know, it all seems premature, but before long those little primroses will be pushing their heads up through the frost, and you'll all be out searching the sallows and you won't be the slightest bit interested in learning new IT skills.

So now's the chance to have a go at blogging. If you're here, you've been invited to join the list of contributors. I only had a small list to start with, so email me with addresses of others who you think should be on the list - as blog administrator I have to give them permission to "post".

It's pretty self-explanatory, you can upload pictures and text, just click on the buttons above the panel in the composition frame. If you really have problems, email me back.

One small step for man, one giant leap for iris!

The website has gone really well - so many contributions through the season, and I really felt that together we managed to create a very useful profile of the empire over one summer. Perhaps the weakest point was having one person collect and then republish each of your offerings. Not only was this very undemocratic, it was also unnecessary, and very unsmart, because the technology exists for all of us to post our own reports and pictures immediately, in a group weblog.

So here it is. Give it a go, just ping up a comment so that you see it come up here, and we'll know that we can all now just publish our smallest thoughts and musings on iris.
