The nerd in me often has a desire to check out new web apps at least for a short period of time, and the flavor of my week is Textpattern. Textpattern is a blog-centric CMS which is PHP-based and open source. It was pretty easy to install, and seemed to near-seamlessly import everything from Wordpress in a few seconds. Perhaps one of the most intriguing aspects to me is the CSS editor...should be fun to play with.

Anyway, if you're curious, it's at blog.danielcwarshaw.com - but don't expect much. Followers of my site know my attention span for these things is pretty short. If it plays nicely, though, it may be time for a change of platform, so we'll see how it goes.
