I’ve been engaged with the whole Web 2.0 thing for the last couple years now, and in light of my new job at InfoToday the time has come to for me to really renew the fervor with which I originally pursued such distractions. I only began using Twitter a couple of months ago, and like many my RoT (Rate of Tweets) has steadily fallen off — not unlike this blog. I think that my newest dalliance has the potential to last quite a bit longer. I’ve set up a “tumblelog” through Tumblr, one of the more recent “It” services of the W2.0 universe. I’ve got it linked over there in the sidebar, in the “Related Pages” section. It’s called NOTM. Tumblelogs — which, I think we can all agree, should really be called “tumblogs” — are essentially abbreviated versions of traditional blogs, so I thought the name appropriate. Isn’t it strange to think that we’ve reached a point when the words “blog” and “traditional” can be put together like that?
In light of this new distinction between my full-blown blog (which IS returning to pseudo-regular posts soon, for real-for real) and my random Internet thoughts blog, I’m removing the del.icio.us postings from this blog and moving them over there. From here on out, updates at this address will be real updates, not just automated internerdery.
I still intend to blog my internerd’s guide on here at some point soon. I’ve also been formulating some editorial/autobiographical thoughts brought about by next year’s impending release of the 4th Edition of Dungeons & Dragons. Then there’s the strong urge to blog all the new episodes of Lost as they air, now that I’m caught up…
