Quite a few neat little technologies operate behind the scenes – here are the details of what makes this site run:
Word Press is the blogging software that powers the entire site. I have been using it since 2008 –it is robust, reliable and flexible. Prior to that the blog was hosted on Typepad, but we outgrew it.
Google powers the site search
dlvr.it automagically delivers these blog posts to Facebook and Twitter.
Feedburner handles our RSS generation and email support.
Akismet handles the spambots nicely. (Good job!)
Web hosting by Server5
Instapaper powers our daily AM and PM reads.
Caitlyn-bot 3000 handles most of the HTML work and file uploading
My Newsfeed was developed by Frank Cioffi of Tech Investor News
Advertising is fulfilled by Investing Channel, Federated Media, and Google Adsense.
Shantz is the Word Press plugin that randomly generates our QOTD
