  • In 200 years someone will wonder what the heck AIM was.

    In 2003 I blogged this to AOL Journals: I once had a fellow student give me this aphorism which i really like: the more competencies you have, the more deviancies you are allowed. blogging via im makes it easy to blog and not get really distracted into writing something good. the downside is that it…


  • 17 Years And Counting

    In 2001 I started blogging via blogger.com. It allowed me to augment my personal site using blog with an external service via FTP and experiment with regularly writing. On this anniversary I have commemorated this before: 2002, 2003, 2004, 2007, 2011, 2014, and 2015. In 2003 I wrote: I am at a loss, but it’s…

  • Oh look I’m posting and old

    Nobody reads blogs anymore. Nobody blogs anymore. Nobody writes anymore. Except people do. Kottke does, still, and regularly. But in the corners of the blog world old favorites still blog (e.g: Tony Pierce, Suebob, Peter-Paul Koch, The Militant and many others). I know this because I follow things in my RSS Reader, powered by Tiny…

  • Lucky Thirteen! (13 years blogging)

    As of TODAY I’ve been blogging more or less sporadically for thirteen years. The first post? It occurs to me… was from when I was still on blogger.com, back when they were not owned by Google. If you’re curious about what’s actually worth revisiting and reading, you might check out the Popular Stuff page.

  • There could not be more news, and there could scarcely be fewer bloggers

    “Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.” ((Yogi Berra)) It’s 2013 and I’m 43 years old. I’m old enough to be called middle-aged now. I’m old enough to think I know a thing or two, and be right. Perhaps it’s time to quote some Ronald Reagan, as I did on this very forum 10 years…

  • ArtLung Semidaily Links

    In 2004 the linkblogging bug bit me. I was inspired by Jorn Barger and Andy Baio. This predated twitter, and Facebook of course. And providing an updated list of “what’s cool” was really fun to do. I gave up on it in 2005, and found the original del.icio.us and moved everything there. In the 8…

  • TEN YEARS

    As of today I have been blogging for 10 years. Here’s my first post. I’ve had a website for 15 years now. In that time a lot has happened. I’ve gotten divorced. I’ve gotten married. I’ve been on the radio, twice. I became a stepfather. I’ve moved several many times. I founded several blogs and…

  • Tumblr, continued.

    Well, hello, happy new year. It’s time to get back in the swing of things after a long hiatus. Back in March of last year, I wrote a long piece about Chris and I blogging over at nuevaciudad.tumblr.com. Well, We have not stopped. Just assume the good posts are all by Chris and not me….

  • nuevaciudad-tumblr-com
    nuevaciudad.tumblr.com

    Since September 2009 I, and my friend CPG have been posting photos and videos to New City: nuevaciudad.tumblr.com. It’s been a great chance for me to try out Tumblr. I think it’s a great, focused tool. It’s blogging for people who are not interested in the blogosphere. It’s great for sharing images, and it can…

  • BlogRush Shuts Down

    Just got this email: After careful consideration, we have decided to shutdown the BlogRush service. If you have the widget code on your blog you will need to remove it. When BlogRush launched in late-2007 it spread like wildfire all over the Web. Thousands of bloggers were talking about it and the service exploded to…

  • Offline Blog Tools

    Some months ago I was prompted to learn a bit more about the tools out there for offline and online alternating blogging tools. Not server software, but applications which allow you to compose your blog and post when you have online access. I was not very impressed by any of them, but then I also…

  • Blogquitting

    Another unearthed post, half-thought, half-written, and now posted, post-dated. I suppose some folks can just quit blogging. The main story of bloggers who stop blogging is that they can’t actually stop. I’m not talking about the sad characters who read they need a blog, do it for a week and then their sites sit on…

  • ArtLung Blogpost Count

    MAS did it, then JeSais did it, and heck, I was curious. What is the number of times I’ve posted to blogs I’ve participated in? artlung.com: 3,160 posts on my personal blog (posting since 2001). sandiegoblog.com: 698 posts from me on my old city blog. No longer posting there much since I sold it. ronny…

  • Eloquent Defense of Kidblogging

    Heather “Dooce” Armstrong has had a busy few weeks. The book she edited was released, she went to New York and came back, and she appeared on National Television™. Hidden in among all that activity is as eloquent a defense of blogging about your kid as I’ve ever read, and it’s well worth reading for…

  • Movable Type Open Source

    Movable Type went open source yesterday, and I don’t care. Too little, too late. A long time ago, it seemed like MT was the way to put together a blog. It was free for personal use, it was good, it was used by heavyweights of blogging. But I could never get past two things: the…

  • Where There’s a Misc There’s a Way

    The language in this is not safe for work, but the sentiments are important: How to Irritate and Annoy People in the Name of Blogging A lot of people I know or know of are blogging about the fires in San Diego: Sassy, JeSais, MAS, MissEwon, Chuck, and Geoff. Also, people I haven’t met: Raph…

  • Lots of Individuated Blog Entries!

    I’ve been on a tear of posting lots of individual entries with neat stuff I found or stuff that upsets or entrances me. Well, there will be more of that. Soon I’ll take a breath and talk more seriously and at more length about: changes in my personal life, changes in my professional life, and…

  • Being referred to now…

    Being referred to now. Scary. Mitch is talking with erudition. Nice. Lester now. He’s rad. Being asked about coming ‘out.’ Big questions. It’s evolving. Doing some updates in emacs. Dirk looking over my shoulder as I update. Cool. bak from the break. Lots of personal questions. (squirm). But it was cool. Dirk asks good questions….
