Calling all WordPress developers!
For any of you interested in the microblogging movement, I encourage you to check out OpenMicroblogger.org. Using the existing OpenMicroblogging protocol developed by Identi.ca founder Evan Prodromou, OMB enables anyone to create a distributed microblogging site that mirrors features found on sites like Twitter, Pownce and others.
What makes this really exciting for WordPress developers is the fact that OpenMicroblogger is built around the existing Prologue theme by Automattic and is compatible with the WordPress plugin and theme APIs. What we need now is some of you great WordPress plugin developers to come on board.
I invite anyone interested in microblogging and WordPress to help us better integrate features of both platforms into a truly great blogging service that anyone can implement on their own server. Also check out my own sports themed OMB implementation at SportsTwit.com.
