Buddypress @ UBC?

Today the OLT Web Dev team met with Andy Peatling the creator of BuddyPress. I have been watching the development of this WordPress MU plugin  for quite sometime and believe it would be a great extension for Blogs @ UBC, it would enable all the popular features of a social network site inside of blogs.ubc.ca things like groups, group messaging, friends, forums, extended user profiles etc. I haven’t poked around the nuts and bolts yet but looks very promising and getting better everyday, best thing is we would have to do little to integrate this with our install and we could have a full blown campus social network. Pretty happy we have WordPress running as our blog platform 🙂
