Dekita Orchard

After much grafting and pruning, the Dekita Orchard is now open to the public. There is a variety of trees and fruit from all corners of the planet, as the Orchard aggregates feeds from EFL/ESL courses worldwide that participate in the Dekita Exchange.

The Orchard helps find the EFL/ESL community and other interested parties to find posts of their interest and gives them a glimpse into the conversations that learners are starting and the thoughts, photos, and sound files they have chosen to share.

The Orchard runs on an open-source Web application named Gregarius

After this first harvest and thanks to a most dedicated gardener, we now have lots of cider and fruitcake to share with you.

Dekita Bloganniversary

Dekita.org celebrated yesterday its first bloganniversary. Aaron and I played the piano 4 hands for the anniversary post and Rudolf collected and displayed a number of long forgotten screenshots from the early days. This has been a hell of a collaboration :-) Lots of blood, sweat and tears (and fun and love). Happy birthday and it's been great to work with you, guys!
You've Made Me So Very Happy (depending on the day, there is always an alternative version)
