Knowledge, Learning, Community
I have mostly good things to say about ELGG, though I see the development as a bit too company-centric, a bit too site centric (though that probably can't be helped; people always prefer to use your free service rather than to download and install your free software). I wish the weblogs had more inspired names. This short article lists things ELGG gets right: a user-centric approach, tags, access groups, aggregation and theming. Via Dave Tosh - who should write about online spaces generally, and not just about ELGG (this is that company-centric thing I'm talking about; don't promote so relentlessly, participate in the conversation, read and think widely, reflect what you're learning, not merely what you're building or selling).
