Hi everyone, thanks for coming over to Hotaru. You must be curious about what Hotaru is and why we're doing it so let me explain by introducing myself. My name's Nick and I'm the founder of JapanSoc.com, a social bookmarking site for Japan-related news and blogs. It was originally built with Pligg, then moved to Social Web CMS, and has since been customized dramatically, leaving me in a bit of a predicament: Do I stick with SWCMS and try to integrate future changes into it, or do I start from scratch and build a completely new CMS, free from the rigid codebase that is holding back further development? Well, I chose the latter and have thrown myself into this new project called Hotaru CMS. My motivation for working away at this is to eventually move JapanSoc from SWCMS to Hotaru. Therefore, you can expect Hotaru to have a suite of plugins that will give it functionality similar to the other social bookmarking platforms. Of course, other people are welcome to make completely different sites with their own plugins and themes. Aside from Hotaru, I'm British, but I moved to Japan in 1998 and am a work-at-home dad. Not much else to say really, but please follow my Hotaru blog where I'll be posting my thoughts as I work on Hotaru. Now it's your turn, please introduce yourself!
