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.Tags: practice
