Configuring your blog to post to your Facebook Wall is a pretty wild process. Just when you think you understand how it works, you forget your secret passcode or phrase or something.. After a bit of wrangling I think we did it. Documentation for performing this connection is somewhat murky at best but once you’ve done it, it kinda makes sense. I suppose it’s a teaching moment. Just because we think all applications should play nice, does not always mean they do. Just think about how far we’ve come. Our Website, links to Facebook and links to Twitter and back to the blog again its circular. One thing is clear; the world needs nerds to figure this stuff out. But at it’s roots, it’s all about clear communication and good documentation.

About the Author: Ben Lorenz
Ben Lorenz showed potential for leadership even in his first job: slinging pizzas at Pizza Hut. Although it wasn’t a lofty start, upper management took notice of Ben’s tenacity and work ethic and asked him to enter the company’s corporate training program... to which Mr. Lorenz replied, “Um, I’m in a band? And we’re like, going on the road soon.” After pounding the Midwest with his drumsticks for several years, Ben chose to return to a life of civility, and summarily cut his mullet when he enrolled in Siena Heights University where he eventually completed a B.A. in business administration. Ben now lives the life of a model businessman, and has managed the technology and web development of some damn impressive clients, including: Mercury and Lincoln Vehicles, Volkswagen and Audi, 1800FLOWERS.com, Discover Card, Siena Heights University, and Domino's Pizza (to the dismay of Pizza Hut, of course). Although he’s no longer sporting a McGyver-style coiffure, Ben continues to enjoy music by performing at employee birthday parties, and entering break dancing competitions under his industry pseudonym, ‘Zip.’
