Great write up on the current state of Twitter, and where it could, and perhaps should, be heading.
“Section 215 is unfortunately cloaked in secrecy. Some day that cloak will be lifted, and future generations will ask whether our actions today meet the test of a democratic society: transparency, accountability, and fidelity to the rule of law and our Constitution.”
- Senator Richard Durbin
For the first time in my life, I made a call to my state representatives and senators for a cause I deeply support. Fight215.org is an incredible tool to help you call all of your representatives and tell them to end mass surveillance under the Patriot Act. I can still feel the adrenaline from the call!
Mass surveillance has done nothing to keep citizens safe and secure. Section 215 of the Patriot Act was re-interpreted in complete secrecy to allow the surveillance of everyone without suspicion. If you want to help put an end to mass surveillance, go to https://fight215.org. Stop the phone record surveillance program and bring US law back in line with the Constitution.

Over the past few years, I have worked on a number of sites requiring an events feed of some type. Rather recently, I decided to give WP Events Organiser a shot and have found it is a very simple but powerful plugin.
I have followed Stephen Harris (the plugin developer) on Twitter for some time and became aware of his great development skills after going through some informative posts on his personal site / blog.
Personally, I like taking advantage of the many built-in functions and hooks the plugin has. It makes manipulating and formatting the event data very easy. The plugin even has its own codex and very much comes in handy.
All in all, if you’re looking for a solid events plugin, I’d say give this one a shot.
