jesta witness update - 2016-08-26

A busy, but good week. steemdb launched, steempress is finally getting love again, and I've actually setup a demo of steempress on was my old, old blog and has now been repurposed to be my "witness blog". steempress has been configured on this website to watch my account, and display any posts with the witness-category tag. In fact, this post should be showing on the top there right now!

1. Accomplished the week of 2016-08-26:

2. Upcoming projects/goals

  • Continue working with @dudutaulois and @pkattera on implementation of their steempress themes. Once I have the code and two working prototypes, I'll be making an announcement with two live demo sites showing it off.
  • More pull requests to the repository are coming. I'm picking simple, but somewhat time consuming tasks that I can accomplish to help reduce the load from the core devs.
  • I have some additional things I'd like to add to steemdb, as suggested by the community. Some time over the next week or two I'll be working on that.
  • will soon be inheriting chart/historical data from steemdb!
  • I am working with my business partner to formulate a plan involving steem. Will be presentable hopefully in the coming weeks.

3. Thoughts from this week

My excitement for the project continues to grow - some of the SIP (Steem Improvement Proposal)'s that @dantheman has posted on github look incredible. I hope to be involved in a number of their discussions and contribute however I can. Some of the opportunities that these ideas could create are truly awesome. Kudos to the steem devs for continuing the evolution of this platform.

I'd also like to give a shoutout to everyone currently contributing meaningful conversations and information about the witness program itself. The guys over at @steemsmart interviewed @pharesim earlier this week, there was a lot of good information around the topic.

Other than that, I haven't had any specific burning topics on my mind this week though, it's been incredibly busy with real life and what you see above. Over the course of the next month I'll be moving, so it's about to get even busier.
