Sort response because I'm about the pass out.

blog.noisebridge.net can suck in rss feeds just like planet can. It works, it sucked in anything off of my blog tagged with Noisebridge, as it does with a couple other members.

I'll be happy to have it read off of any syndicated rss feed of yours or give you a full fledged account to post from in the morning.

You could post on blog.noisebridge.net then have a feed with only your content from there syndicated to the planet. Woah meta...

There are two separate things -- the planet, and the noisebridge blog.

planet is an aggregator of blogs by individuals and projects at
Noisebridge. What you're describing is perfect for that! Just set up a
wordpress blog and do your blogging there, and then send email to
rack at lists giving the RSS URL and we'll add you to the planet. It's
super easy to set up a blog on wordpress.com and go from there.

blog.noisebridge.net is a blog *about* noisebridge, rather than focused
on any particular projects or whatever. If you'd like to post there,
that's certainly doable -- rubin manages the accounts for it AFAIK --
but it might be more appropriate to have a standalone blog to link to

If you want to have a fancy domain name like darkroom.noisebridge.net,
we can do that! Just tell me what address to CNAME it to. This costs a
few bucks a year on wordpress.com but may be free or cheaper on other
hosts. (This also interoperates fine with the planet, so posts can show
up in both places.)
