Hey, PBwiki-ers! It’s worth mentioning that the tags support that we rolled out this month across PBwiki was largely inspired by a series of wonderful meetings we had with Nitin Borwankar.

We're Video Stars!
Our rocking friends Jay & Ryan (vlogstars in their own right) came over to our new digs in San Bruno – we’re right by the SF airport, which is great, except for when the big planes come zooming overhead. Check out their awesome interview with our team!

So as many of you astute readers may have noticed, we use PHP on the backend. Nathan and I ran into a curious quirk today; if you do a require_once() in a function’s context, the variables set in the required file are not visible as globals once the function returns, even to functions in theContinue reading “Interesting PHP Quirk w/require_once”

We’re just in the first design phases of rolling outContinue reading “The PBwiki API”
