Dear All,

Hope this message finds you well.

My name is Jeff Campbell. I am the technical coordinator for
culture360.org.

culture360.org is an Asia-Europe Foundation project (asef.org).

I am contacting the Culture Mondo network in relation to the
redevelopment of culture360.org.

We have engaged new developers to create a socially networked magazine
style site on WordPress Multi User (WPMU) with the social network
elements provided by BuddyPress (BP).
http://mu.wordpress.org/
http://buddypress.org/
(See examples below)

The project team would very much appreciate any experienced input as
we move through the process.

Our developers will be providing 3-4 examples of the home page etc in
the functional specification, and it would be great to have other
opinions, particularity from a usability point of view.

If you are interested please contact me.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Best regards,

Jeffrey Withaya Campbell

democratically create and build a public policy of digital culture,
integrating citizens, government institutions, state companies, civil
society and the market.”: http://www.culturadigital.br/

In Culturizarte've chosen to use Buddymatic 0.9.6.2 by Ron Rennick.

The definitive WordPress theme for 2010. Buddymatic is a highly
extensible Framework Theme for WordPress & WordPress MU BuddyPress
enabled blogs including home and member blogs. This framework features
13 widget-ready areas, drop-down menus, grid-based layout samples,

BuddyPress functionality is integrated into the framework and

WordPress MU site, is based on Thematic Buddymatic by Ian Stewart and
works with Thematic child themes. Includes 2 BuddyPress Buddymatic
child ready themes: Coffee with Friends by Daisy Olsen and a Child
