  • 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…
