For a gathering that was organised at such a short notice, we had an excellent attendance of 10 bloggers! Thanks to everyone who came. It was excellent to see everyone and be re-energised again to do even more for the community.
There were many topics discussed of course and resolutions made, one that I have already actioned is the restoration of the old Gregarious RSS Aggregator for BahrainBlogs.org, after the continuous troubles I’ve had with WordPress and its brain-dead aggregator plugin, it was a pleasure for me to delete that installation and restore it back. I hope you like it.
Please also note, that as the Bahraini government has inexplicably blocked http://bahrainblogs.org, I have made it available within Bahrain on https://bahrainblogs.org (note the S). So until they block this one too and you have to access it through one of the proxy services or applications, enjoy!
I would appreciate it if you would let me know so I can add it.
Unfortunately the venue we chose did not have WiFi! Can you believe it? It probably will be the last time we meet there. The absence of wireless access prevented us to add an 11th very welcome blogger to our gathering: Yacoub Slais. Hopefully next time, who knows, attending virtually might be something that we perfect for those who couldn’t come join us for any reason.
Quick shout out to the attendees:
