New Website for DMD Pioneers

I just started working on a new website for DMD Pioneers, the Yahoo! Groups mailing list I belong to and moderate for. It is currently in the early development stages so there is not much to see right now. I am not alone in the over all project as there will be multiple writers involved. My primary job right now is getting the content management system set up. It is going to use Joomla 1.5 for the CMS which is something I’m new to me but it is pretty powerful and should work out great.

The goal of the website is to provide a place for information about adults living with Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy, and to help them continue to beat the odds against it. It will soon be a place for blogs, articles, a special place to memorialize the fellow members who are no longer with us. It will also, of course, be used to promote the mailing list on Yahoo! Groups. You can check the progress on the site by visiting it at I will also periodically on my blog here at
