Trying to Blog
By Cliff C.rodas at Feb 19, 2009
Ahhh... my first 24 hours of on-going interconnectivies in the ZedShed.
Bloggin'! <- That's an interjection of catharsis? I need to network. I'm an extra-social animal and I have the need to connect and be connected to. It can be chit-chatty, it can be social liberatin', it can be technical and it can be a lot of others things. The more of these interconnected the better.
But, bloggin' and forums and databases are still too separate. I send a blog comment, but I can't get a subscription to see ongoing discussions there. If someone wants to get back to me on a comment they'll most likely post a comment I might never see or - to ensure my seeing it - have to click on my name and then on an e-mail. I'm on the wickedest-dialup/home-kit-in-the-Great-Lakes and so these things connections - from my perspective - are even less seamless to me. And we're all going to have so many of them. Sooo... we'll probably need a tag/metatag/tag cloud system of some sort.
Man! I wish I could program way beyond insertin' simple html tags, 'cause I can feel (if I can't articulate yet) where I wanna go. I want to drag stuff around a virtual desktop and have a 'seamless' feel like Tom Cruise in Minority Report. A litle like the boardgamegeek.com. I want to wiki (arrived just in time to see it down)! I want to immerse and then figure it out from there.
This site is x3 (outta 4, for me technically, and in my limited dilettantish experience), but I wanna (us and me) connect , grow and move around here like Michael Jordan. (the smiley influenced this funky metaphor ->)
