    It’s metablogging week here…

    A response from me to Shelley at The Kitchen that ended up a bit longer than I expected. She mentioned that her blood was boiling over something at Jason’s blog. I don’t see it as something that’s that big of an issue, since the nature of the blogosphere abhors control, and a Blog Ethics committee […]

    Merely a personal rant

    by  • 11/19/2004 • meta---ging • 0 Comments

    From some newspaper report who has no actual knowledge of blogging, so take his comments lightly. I do agree to some extent that much of what exists on blogspot and livejournal is composed of angst ridden poems by 14 year olds, there’s a lot of exceptional writing out there. There have been instances of gross […]

    The trouble with conversations via blogs

    by  • 11/19/2004 • geek, meta---ging • 0 Comments

    I’ve often felt like my hands were tied when trying to hold a back and forth conversation with someone via their blog. It may be that I’m reading someone’s blog that doesn’t have comments enabled, or that somehow has posted a comment to one of my entries here and I want to reply. I can […]

    Blogging via cellular…

    The only annoying bit about making entries in this fashion is the typing with one finger. The black berry units are just as annoying though. Tie together phone posting a la live journal with a dragon voice recognition system and we would be ahead of the game. With predictive typing i find that i an […]

    Seattle BloggerCon in the future?

    by  • 11/18/2004 • geek, meta---ging • 0 Comments

    Robert Raketty over at Seattle Blogger is proposing that Seattle host an upcoming BloggerCon. I admit that I like the approach to the Unconventional Convention, with things being dictated by the people rather than the party planners at the convention level. It can’t be anarchy, or everyone would sit in the room saying “I don’t […]

    Dinner with Dave Winer, Roland and others (and the rest….) coming up on Friday the 19th. Yes, the night that is the opening night of The Eastside Culture Crawl. Since they’re meeting for dinner in Chinatown, about a dozen blocks west of the studio, maybe they’ll bring the dinner TO ME… Come on guys, bring […]

    Metablogging; The Truth Shall Make You Free.

    by  • 11/17/2004 • geek, meta---ging • 0 Comments

    I think I need to add a new category here, specifically for talking about the practice of the action of writing stuff for the web. The new journalism, personally empowered media, blogging, whatever you want to call it. There’s nothing really magical about the act of writing your thoughts down and publishing it to a […]

    Writers, advertising, and ethics

    by  • 11/16/2004 • geek, life, meta---ging • 0 Comments

    Jason left a couple additional points on my earlier post. I include the points here as I don’t have any sort of “conversational” comment feature that allows for nested replies, etc. My point is about the public trust and ethics. We should not mix advertising into the content of our blogs, we should keep it […]
