I spoke yesterday with Jon Udell about goals for ElmCity for this fall. He has since posted two very cool things:

  1. Using FriendFeed to manage a loosely-coupled team. Pulling project members’ own blog postings, Facebook status updates, tweets, and the like together in one place is probably as cost-effective a way to manage a team as the usual mailing list + IRC channel.
  2. A lengthy description of how to make elmcity and WordPress play nicely together. A calendar aggregator plugin for WordPress would be very cool (think about a blog for your city that aggregated and displayed events harvested from neighborhood-level blogs), but Jon’s description of how it works is a good intro to elmcity for would-be curators.

Please check them both out and let him know your thoughts.
