Mathblogging.org launches using the ScienceSeeker Codebase

Our friends at Mathblogging.org have upgraded their site with a fantastic array of new features. We can say that with some knowledge because they are using SubjectSeeker, the same open-source codebase used to run ScienceSeeker!

We believe that the SubjectSeeker code can be used to collect news and discussion on almost any topic, and this is just the first example.

We have been working for several months with Mathblogging to help them move to the new platform, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the results. Here's an excerpt from their official announcement:

To celebrate ScienceOnline 2013, we’re very happy to announce the launch of the new and improved mathblogging.org!

Among our new features are:

  • Our editors! A group of dedicated bloggers who regularly share their favorite pieces, right on the front page — it’s like our Weekly Picks, only better!

  • A user system – register an account & claim your blog today, add comments to posts just like our editors do and have them tweeted right away.  And you can look forward to more features in the near future!

  • An easy way to add sites: just paste the link and we’ll do the rest.

  • better search — easy to get to, easy to work with, easy to find stuff.

  • robust API — to build personalized searches, feeds and whatever you can think of (with more in the making).

  • Moar social media!!11!eleventy!! — three new twitter accounts will give you the Editor Picks, the Notes and the firehose feed, with more to come in the future. Google+ and other platforms soon to follow.

Congratulations to Mathblogging.org! We look forward to working with them -- and many other sites -- in the future!
