Blog Evolution

From time to time, I try to update my blog to make it more useful or accomodating to changes in the landscape of the participation age. Today’s changes were more evolutionary than revolutionary. I increased the overall page width to provide two columns of standard information. The left column is dedicated to working with the blog – primarily subscribing or finding information. The right column provides links to my most significant connections into global social networking fabric. I hope this will help people connect to me more effectively.

I have also made the decision to discontinue the automatic posting of my Del.icio.us bookmarks. First, it made me kind of lazy – using the bookmark/blog feature rather than write real posts. Second, the Del.icio.us posts kind of cluttered the flow of my blog. So, I have provided links directly to my Del.icio.us bookmarks, plus an RSS feed for those who wish to subscribe.

The cloudy photo in the upper left corner is a placeholder for now. What I’d really like is to find or develop a script that would randomly select a photo from one of my Flickr photo sets do display there. I came close today by modifying a Flickr badge script, but the photo sizing was wrong. Does anyone have a solution for this?

What is next? I plan two significant elements:

  • Interactive participation in the “Discovering Indentity” wiki hosted at wikis.sun.com.
  • A relaunch of the “Whodentity” list I used to maintain.

So, thanks for stopping by. Suggestions are always welcome. Happy blogging!
