Paper nearly complete

This is a (currently empty) website, intended to document the process of creating an Open Content resource website using the WordPress.com hosted service.

There will be descriptions of the strategies, patterns, techniques, and tricks we used to create the site, as well as ideas on how to generalize to other content management systems.
