I created a site called JoomStew.com a little over a year ago that uses Wordpress blog software to run it. When I started the site, I fully intended for it to be a place where I could blog about things within the Joomla community that didn't really have a place here on my business site.
I threw it together in about 8 hours with just some tweaks of the template and a nice new logo I created. That's the logo you see there on the right.
It wasn't long after the site went live, that a good friend of mine, Amy Stephen, asked if I might want to start a series of Podcasts about a book that had just been released by Jono Bacon called The Art of Community. You can actually download the entire book as a PDF, free of charge on Jono's site.
Jono is the Community Manager for Ubuntu, another Open Source software project, and the book covers a lot of good topics on how to create and manage a large Open Source community, or any type of online community really.

Many of my client websites require an image gallery to show multiple images sorted by category or album. One of my favorite options is the GPL Joomla 1.5 Component JoomGallery. It offers a great rotating image module, automatic thumbnail resize and the ability to show the large images in a popup, lightbox or slideshow window.
The following video tutorial will show you how easy it is to add images to the gallery and have them live on your site in no time.
