I’m a product designer in Seattle, WA. I lead Design at a stealthy startup. I recently worked at Simply Measured, and previously co-founded Lendle.

Some of my past clients include Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo!, and the University of Washington.

I’ve authored two books on web and interactive design and spoken at dozens of conferences around the world.

But seriously, who gives a shit?

James Bennett: Where is Django’s blog application?

People ask me this question all the time. The answer, in general, is, “there’s really not one.” Building a monolithic blogging application for Django kind of goes against the grain of most of the best practices for Django development — and James explains this in detail. It’s a good read if you’re curious about the design of Django apps.

What’s more, most of the Django blogging applications that do exist were generally built by a single person for their own personal site, and tend to be customized to that person’s needs, making them less likely to be suitable for your needs.

And, quite frankly, writing a simple blogging app in Django is so damn easy that it just doesn’t feel worth it.
