Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain

Did you see that? Well how could you? It’s all happening behind the scenes. Yes, I’m working on more additions and improvements to this site, but, unfortunately, none of them are ready to be posted yet. I’ve now sent interview questions to Josh Marinacci and to Jon Gordon and I’ve gotten another commitment for an interview from Sidney Pike!

Sidney has also sent me some extra goodies — press info, reviews, etc. So I’ll be working to add those items to the site over the next few days.

But wait there is more! At least there is more coming. I’ve been looking into tools to organize a “Books By People YOU know” section for the site. I’ve spent some time over the weekend fiddling with Pligg, an open-source web application based on Digg. If you are not familiar with Digg you should really check it out, it is habit-forming. So far I haven’t been able to get Pligg to work properly, and I suspect that it is overkill for what I have in mind, but I am going to keep noodling with it for a while longer before I decide. If anyone out there has set it up successfully in a subdirectory instead of a root domain I’d love to know how you did it! :)

I’m also poking around Sourceforge a lot lately looking for different web goodies to see if any inspire me to add something interesting. There are definitely a lot of cool options for bulletin boards and content management systems. Hopefully you can stand being patient a bit longer while I do my R and D (that’s research and dawdling) — hopefully I’ll come up with some additions that are worth the wait.
