Hi Sarah,

I would actually opt for using Delicious.

Essentially, we want a very lightweight environment for sharing interesting
case studies. While Word Press is excellent and open source, I think it may
be a bit too bulky for this exercise as it's built for users who want to
create lengthier articles and pages.

Tumblr is also a good option, even if it's not open source. However, I'm
not sure if you can invite collaborators on a bog, which is essential for

Does anyone else have any preferences?
