Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during week 20.
This week, there is a warning about (not) installing Joomla 1.6 beta on your live site, a write-up on the Joomla! Student Outreach Program and a post on how you can join the Joomla 1.6 bug squad, to mention some.
Enjoy the read :)

..on a live site.
Thats right I really did say don't install Joomla 1.6 Beta 1 and I encourage everyone else not to as well.
How can I say that?
Am I mad?
Am I saying it's rubbish?

Thanks to each of you who volunteered to help with the finalization of Joomla! 1.6.
As of this moment, there are 45 volunteers! It is encouraging to see the community step forward in this way. This morning, Nicholas Dionysopoulos and I were talking about how best to assist the group to get the tools, knowledge and support needed to be a successful member of the Joomla! Bug Squad.

This is Part 3 & 4 in unsolicited usability review for Joomla.org, and if you haven't read Part 1 - General Thoughts or Part 2 - Developers Perspective, then do so first. I'm combining the last two parts into one, to help produce a more coherent design.
A little bit of time has passed since Parts 1 & 2, but there are still two angles I haven't yet covered from the original post.
