Vespa revs up their community with WordPress

Vespa has just launched “La Vespa Vita” (The Vespa Life, for those who aren’t fluent in Italian) – a site which is largely powered by WordPress and the Vespa community through user-submitted blog posts, photos of their Vespas, and style inspired by their Vespas.

By the appearance of their stylish WordPress site, we judge The Vespa Life to be very beautiful, indeed.

Rosetta Stone Joins WordPress.com VIP

Rosette Stone, the technology-based language learning company, has launched their new blog RVOICE on WordPress.com VIP:
http://blog.rosettastone.com/2010/05/11/welcome/

The new blog, RVoice, will focus on:

… [a] discussion on the role of technology and pedagogy in changing how people learn languages. And we also wanted to provide an opportunity for you to get to know us better and for us to get to know you.

Our intention is not to have a blog just for the sake of being current – no technology for technology’s sake, we like to say. This is about opening up the conversation and providing a focused forum for debate on new ideas and practices in the field of language learning. Clearly, there is lots of soul searching going on out there about tech-enabled language learning – what’s lacking is the participation of leading practitioners and a framework for the debate. We hope to change that.
