Here's a trick I used on a recent collaborative website (built in WordPress, of course) that let me send emails to either ALL of the contributors, or just to some of them based on their skill set. It can work anytime you want to target just some of the people on your email list.

We have almost 50 questions answered already at ElectingThePope.net and another 30 "in the hopper" so far. Thanks to all those who are contributing responses. Check out what we've done so far! You can also subscribe via RSS now or get posts via email.

What can we do as individual parishes, as bloggers, etc., to provide quality information for people searching for stuff about Benedict XVI's resignation and the workings of a papal conclave? I was frustrated to see that the third result for "how does a papal conclave work" was from atheism.about dot com. And it's actually a really thorough article! But imagine how effective it would be if articles about the subject could be followed with links to, say Catholics Come Home.

I've linked to reputable Catholic news sources and the Vatican site directly.  As far as commentary locally, I'm waiting for our Bishop to release something.

I was contacted by someone looking for a Catholic app developer. Email me through my profile if you'd like me to pass your name along.

Is it just me, or is something up with the photo editor in Google Plus? I keep trying to add a text box to a photo to show +Sarah Reinhard how awesomely easy it is, but my SPACE BAR isn't working. Help?

But it always worked before! It was my act of saying "oh, it's easy! Let me show you!" that broke it. For everyone.

Here's my first post in a series on building collaborative websites. I've learned a lot about managing workflow via the tried-and-true strategy of Doing It Wrong. Would love feedback from others who have participated in group blogs and other collaborative sites.

I'm putting together a website to act as a one-stop shop for simple, clear answers to basic questions about the upcoming papal election. The kind of stuff a sixth grader might need to research for a class project, not page-long analysis of the inner workings of the Vatican. I need contributors who are willing to answer some very simple questions in posts of 1-4 paragraphs. Read on if you're interested in participating in this project:

I got to see a sneak peek of Jennifer Fulwiler's new miniseries and I really enjoyed it - totally non-corny, thought-provoking, and enjoyable. The first episode airs tomorrow. Here's a short writeup I did for Dappled Things:

If my whole life is on PC or Android phone, how do I listen to podcasts? I'm lazy and want you to tell me.

I also use iTunes, then copy over to my android device using Windows explorer if that is where I am using it. Podcasts come in mp3s on iTunes. Not the music, just the podcasts
