Wordpress releases first official Wordpress Multi-User Edition
This is pretty big news in the Wordpress blogging world. Wordpress multi-user edition 1.0 has been released. Wordpress multi-user editions enable others to actually create blogs from your install. I mean, you can essentially host thousands of blogs on your blog. For a long time this was the one advantage that Movable Type had over Wordpress.
This is good news for STC because now the STC can provide free blogging for all of its members. Of course, blogging has always been free at wordpress.com, but wouldn't it be cool if your blogging account was http://tom.stc.org rather than http://tom.wordpress.com?
I was able to install it here: https://idratherbewriting.com/wpmu. Try starting up a blog there just for fun.
