Going to an AngularJS meetup this Monday. Time to go through the tutorial again…

I want to participate!

The WordPress.com Blog

It wasn’t just a one-time event! The Automattic Worldwide WP 5k is back again in 2012! Set your timers for April 29th!

At Automattic we work from all over the world, and we use internal blogs for socializing and exchanging non-work ideas in addition to making WordPress.com and our other products more awesome. One of the things we’re really concerned about is staying healthy – we even have an entire internal blog dedicated to fitness.

We had a great idea: Get all Automatticians from 79 cities & 24 countries to run/walk a 5k on the same day! This way we can get some exercise together as a company even though we’re apart (though we won’t rule out a softball or Texas scramble at our next meetup).

A year later, and there are now 105 Automatticians we hope will take part in the 5k all around the world in 2012.

Thanks for the detailed explanation of how reblogging works on wordpress.com!

The WordPress.com Blog

As we mentioned last week, you can like and reblog posts directly from your reader, which displays a stream of all the updates published on all the blogs you follow from your WordPress.com account.

We’ve also brought the reblog button back to the toolbar that appears at the top of the screen when you’re logged into WordPress.com. Note that you’ll only see the like and reblog options while you’re looking at individual posts.

And your toolbar will look like this while you’re browsing the home page of en.blog.wordpress.com:

Reading The OAuth 1.0 Guide

WordPress.com now supports the OAuth 2.0 protocol. I checked out the developer portal develop.wordpress.com and wanted to learn more about the OAuth spec, so I’m reading the guide (http://hueniverse.com/oauth/guide/)!

Specifically, the section on the signature methods (Security Framework > Signature and Hash) http://hueniverse.com/oauth/guide/security/ is worthy reviewing.

CEO Blog: Delivery.com on Campus | The Delivery Zone – The Delivery.com Blog.

College students today are equipped with ID cards, which unlike when their parents were in school, are connected to payment processing systems that enable family members to debit money to those cards for their children’s everyday purchases. […] Seeing an opportunity to offer college students online ordering and a larger selection of local merchants, we have partnered with payment processing systems so college students can place orders on Delivery.com with their student ID cards.

If Facebook taught us anything it is that the wants and needs of students at one school give a good indication of what students everywhere want. So we are quickly expanding our campus program nationwide, enabling college students to transact with the network of local merchants that they depend on whenever they are online, which for students nowadays is all the time, whether that be in Columbus, Ohio or Phoenix, Arizona.
