Gosh! I’m such a geek!

Sometimes I read one of my blog posts, or catch myself saying something super technical to a non-techie and I think to myself… “Gosh! I’m suach a geek.” Then the feeling passes and I forget my geekiness (it’s normal for me after all).

That is all.

Garden Ministries, an experiment in using WordPress as a CMS

For quite awhile I’ve been toying with the idea of using WordPress as the sole content management system for a web site. As of 1.5, WordPress is customizable (themes), has pages (static content), permalinks/SEF urls, and a WYSIWYG editing interface (using a plug-in).

That’s pretty much a basic CMS right there… and it’s free.

The guinea pig was Garden Ministries a site I built for a co-worker. it’s not a custom design (it’s a customized Wuhan: Autumn) but for the amoutn of time I spent (a few hours) to get a completely functional site up… it is, well, astoundingly complete.

The Emerging Church featured on PBS- Religion and Ethics

My favorite quote:

TONY JONES (National Coordinator, Emergent): Is it more sloppy than what a systematic theology professor does, sitting in his tenured chair typing up a book on the doctrine of the atonement? Yeah, it’s messier than that! But that’s, I think, theology as it works itself out in the lives of human beings who are kind of scratching and clawing their way to try to follow Jesus on a daily basis. It’s a messy endeavor, and I embrace that messiness.

Zombie Dance Party @ McDonalds

“You know those nerdy Cegep kids who run around on the mountain during Tam Tams fighting with duct tape weapons? We’re trying to recruit an army of slow, dumb annoying zombies to go and attack them, just to see what happens. We’re meeting for a potluck at 1:00pm, putting on makeup, dirty clothes etc., and then going out to do battle. You’re heavily encouraged to prepare some zombie clothes beforehand (rip up some old clothes and smear them with dirt), and bring makeup if you have it. -stillepost.ca”

Absolutely genius.
