Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during week 17:

RocketTheme will be using NinjaBoard as their forum solution of choice for future templates.
Currently, the template developer is using phpbb3. The collaboration between Stian and RocketTheme will improve the feature-set of NinjaBoard and I could tell Stian was excited of the possibilities.
RocketTheme will sponsor development of NinjaBoard for a year and have put a significant amount of money on the table for that to happen.
