the lack of uptake of RSS reading software by consumers and businesses is among the turns of events in recent technology history thats most disparaging of the state of humanity. That a personalized, centralized repository for updates from dynamic streams of information delivered by free trusted sources of democratic publishing all over the world has had its tech-lunch eaten by mind-rotting casual Flash games on Facebook is as depressing as the way that public education dreams were dashed when the promise of television became its reality.

Good blogs are weird. Blogs make fart noises and occasionally vex readers with the degree to which the blogger’s obsession will inevitably diverge from the reader’s. If this isn’t happening every few weeks, the blogger is either bored, half-assing, or taking new medication.
As most of us know, WordPress development happens at a record pace and trying to keep up with everything is a daunting task. However, the team here at WLTC does a great job filtering all of the WordPress related content on the web to bring the best to you. During the course of a year, this content adds up. Some of it being news posts, how-to guides, reviews, breaking news, etc. So, since it’s near the end of the year, I thought I would take a trip through the WLTC Archive and revisit come classic posts from 2008.
This series is broken up into two parts. The first part covers the months of January-June while part two takes care of July-December. When you browse through the links, let us know which one was your favorite or perhaps, which one has been the most helpful to you.
