Eleven Seconds looks really great now! Well, it always did in fact.
does no one link to Justin’s page? He’s a granddaddy of this form. OK, I will.
I’m a member of a particular virtual community and the whole weblog thing is one of the ongoing discussions there. It’s a pretty small group, but large enough that I don’t know everyone there. So anyway, for the past few days, Brent Simmons (from Userland and Inessential.com) has been posting pictures of different people using Manila to do their weblogs – and guess whose picture is right below mine… Dru Jay – the guy who started the weblogs topic at the VC. His site is called Misnomer.
I’ve been trolling through lots of these sites on and off all weekend. Learning. I’m not new to the web at all, but I’ve never kept a blog, nor have I really followed them. I found two more today I like a lot. Ryan’s Sixfoot6 site is very nice. I like the blue, which is very similar to one of my original personal sites (long-gone) from 1994-5 or so. Not to say it’s dated or anything. I also like Tomalak’s Realm by Lawrence Lee. Lots of stuff for me to read there.
Jish’s weblog shmeblog takes up the question of what this [weblogging] is about. Being noticed? Refusing anonymity? It also goes to the whole question of the web/real divide. That divide doesn’t exist anymore for me. It did, but I’ve come out the other side. My online life – Café Utne, work, writing, whatever – is completely intermingled with my real life. The first thing that came to mind for me when I read Zeldman‘s piece today was that I worked with a guy on CTHEORY for four years and we never spoke. Or maybe we did once.
