Welcome, Thelonius!

July 16th, 2010

We just upgraded our WordPress MU installation to the latest version, 3.0 “Thelonious”.

I was a little bit worried when this version first came out, after seeing posts about things breaking for sites that use certain plugins. Almost luckily for me, I was too busy with the Blackboard upgrade to even think about thinking about testing WordPress 3. Now that I’ve finally found some time to devote to my other main project, I’m extremely relieved to see that these issues have been resolved by the tireless WordPress community.

Now we’re ready to roll! Check out the video below for a taste of what’s new with Thelonious!

Ryerson’s Own Digital Media Zone

March 18th, 2010

One of Ryerson’s latest innovations is a centre for innovations – the Digital Media Zone. Located in the AMC, it is the new home for a slew of edgy student projects.

From the DMZ’s own website:

The Ryerson Digital Media Zone (DMZ) is an energy-charged concept space designed to enable student innovation and collaboration. Students will be able to test out and develop their digitally inspired ideas that come from any program area and solve any problem.

Take a look at Ryerson Student Life’s tour of the DMZ:
