The ArtLung Blog, which debuted in March 2001, has made a big technology shift today. I expect there will be errors and bugs in these first few days and I check over content to make sure things work.
I love Blogger, and will continue to use it for some purposes. But I’ve migrated into the open source PHP/MySQL solution WordPress. I’ve been so happy with it over at San Diego Blog, I felt it was time to do it here.
One of the things this enables me to do is to have comments on the site. I’ve always been hesitant to allow public comments — and I’m still not convinced it’s such a hot idea. But I quite like the idea of using trackback to conversate with other blogs. I also think sometimes comments allow the conversation to do wonderful, unexpected things.
So, we’ll see how it shakes out. Welcome to the new world of ArtLung Blog.
