Restart your aggregators

While the tweaking will surely continue, I've got most of the set-up on the new version of this blog set. That means that, with the exception of a few housekeeping announcements, posting here will stop. Here's the info you need:

The good news (for me) is that this change has both strengthened and simplified the mechanisms I use to publish my blog. Del.icio.us now handles the link blog entirely. Since Textpattern supports categories I'll no longer be posting all of my own entries to del.icio.us in a category-like hack. I've reduced, greatly, the amount of information that appears on the blog itself for those of who still visit the actual website.

Anyway. See you there.

Houston, we have a URL.

I've purchased ext337.org for the next incarnation of this blog.

Let the tinkering begin.

Well, as much as I like bryght (and I really like it), I've decided that I just can't foot the $40/month hosting bill right now for a personal site.

With that in mind, I've made the somewhat surprising decision to use an application called Textpattern to manage this weblog. I'll be hosting it at Textdrive. You can see the beginnings here: ext 337. I still have some more to do before I flip the switch and stop using this site completely. I will, however, be doing some updates to that site.

I'm using Textdrive to manage my link blog -- it's in the left rail -- as well.

I decided to go with Textpattern because, well, I wanted to. I like the way that it manages content, using tags, and focuses on the ease of writing entries. I also like the chance to broaden my experience with different applications.

If the posting here slows down, check that site.

Cleveland?

As it stands, I'll be in Cleveland Saturday, May 14th until Wednesday, May 18th. It looks like Saturday and Tuesday nights are free. If you're in Cleveland and you want to talk nonprofits and technology send me a note.

They're dead. They'rethriving. Dead. Thriving.

Beth Kanter offers a nice round up of the conversation to date: Beth's Blog: The trail of discoverability ... take 2.

Lots of food for thought. The whole discussion -- and the way in which it has been conducted -- provides, to my mind, a good evidence that blogs are in fact different than websites. Could anyone imagine this happening on a bunch of organizational sites? Would they even recommend that it should?

Blogging is about personal voice. Beth's post (linked above) points to examples of the way that organizations do this. Microsoft and Sun provide two other examples. In neither case are their blogs on their main corporate site -- but clearly both are letting employees talk about their work on company time.
