9:30 -- Re-read Brian Lamb's blog post.
9:33 -- Poked around Stephen Downes' site, reading over some of the documentation on Edu_Rss. Really, I'm hoping to find an OPML file. Bingo.
9:40 -- Create a database on educon20.org.
9:42 -- Go to Drupal.org -- grap a copy of the 5.7 codebase, and the following modules: FeedAPI, FeedElement Mapper, Views, Views Bonus, Tagadelic, and CCK. At a later point, if nothing blows up, I'll probably add in Similar Content.
9:50 -- untar code. Realize I'm curious how long this will actually take, and resign myself to getting less sleep than I originally hoped. So it goes.
9:59 -- upload code to the server. Crack a beer. A good one.
10:04 -- bring site live.
