everybody in its corner, I was thinking that it would be much better for the 
project to have a multi author blog uniquely devoted to and aggregating posts 
about PostGIS. Authors often blogging about PostGIS (like Paul and Regina) 
could concentrate their post about PostGIS there. We could accept occasional 
posts from advanced users and repost posts made by others. That would be a 
kind of one-stop blog for PostGIS. We could name it "The PostGIS Blog".

in the new blog by making the association with a company clear and put the 
picture of the author. We could also make clear promotional add type boxes to 
the respective authors' organizations.

Aggregator sounds good to me.  I'll be sure to update my infrequent posts with 
relevant tags so that the postgis nuggests can be filtered from my soil-
related chaff.
