I’d like to start a dedicate Stan blog at
Question 1: What should we call it?
Question 2. Who oversees content?
For (1), I would prefer it not be too cute or obscure.
For (2), I think ultimate responsibility should rest with whoever oversees the web site, which is now Breck. Hopefully it’ll all stay civil and we can just trust people to post the same way we trust them to use the wiki.
Question 3. Where is it hosted?
- WordPress: nominal annual fee with domain mapping; supports MathJax; experience using WordPress among the team members; separate content and password management for blog; can’t edit comments (this drives me crazy they don’t let you do that yet).
- GitHub: free; content gets managed with rest of web site; no comments built-in, so we’d need external service like Disqus (anyone know others?); more control and more management required on our side to set up styles, etc.
If I had to do this tomorrow, I’d just go with WordPress because it seems easier. Though I’d feel bad about it because I like to do everything on GitHub.
