Hmmm, blogs

I’ve been quite busy,

We’re building a new college website from scratch (finally) and at the same time redeveloping our intranet.

My task is to build all of the fun interesting stuff for students, no easy feat.  I’ve talked about seeSpace before , I’ve recenty met with the Student Council who raised the idea of student blogs:

Students create blogs, which are then viewable by all on the intranet.

I’ve started to implement this, which proving to be quite easy (it’s a simple recode of my exisiting application that allows students to record small notes/messages to themselves).

But what if we start thinking a little bigger?

I thought about how we can integrate the student blog idea and convert seespace into a student social network, I’ve got alot of the functionality sorted already via seec (twitter updates), blogs,  friends etc.

All we need to do is put it together in a cohesive format and create an easy to use image uploader.
