Projects

Well, I’m in the thick of several self initiated projects right now. One involves the rebuilding of my videoblog site. This is progressing well and will be available shortly, though I won’t have migrated all the content across. Another is the development of a new writing project, again in Tinderbox and exported to HTML, which is where I want to develop some ideas. It is informal, blog like, writing but I don’t want the serial structure of a blog. It will be closer to what Mark calls a Fagerjordian structure for precisely the reasons he outlines. There’s a lot of good stuff in my blog, but I never find it, read it, see it. Hardly anyone else does either. This is not a problem of categories or tags. If I use lots of tags then I still can’t find stuff, because the tags are either too specific so I have to scratch and peck through too many, or I only use a few and then it becames a case of trawling through hundreds of entries. And that’s describing me trying to find stuff so how would anyone else? This is probably a generic problem with blogs. They’re great for reflection, for serialised content production and distribution, but they aren’t so good at being a usable archive. Finally, there’s the video project that I’ve started using Korsakow.

The video project is online, the other two should be up in early form next week.

Afterthought. I knew there was another project. I’m moving all my research content that currently sits in a Drupal installation to something much simpler and more lightweight. That one is also nearly finished and will be live real soon now too.
