Melbourne Web Standards Group (WSG) presents James Farmer.

James Farmer has worked with teams turning blogging platforms into content management systems, social networks, academic journals, and communities for professionals... and Sam and the City.

Social software built around open source platforms like WordPress, extended through plugins and crammed full of widgets and APIs are starting to pop up left right and centre.

In this get together James will take you through some examples, illustrate just how easy they are to put together and talk about how blogs, and other elements of social software do, and don't, fit into the mass media landscape in Australia.
