Michael Markman's Take on Media, Marketing, & Technology
Bloggy, you gremlin!
I trip when I begin to talk about "validating" the subjective narrative. Because, of course, it's never in need of /validation/ ... which is sorta the point. And even when the "data" is questionable (see cog- and social-psych on "self-reporting"), the personhood remains. (Tonight for the first time I crafted "Information contra data ... and the pershonhood slips through the distributed middle.)So when I see how you started blogging not quite 2 years ago ... I have to know there's something there.I started creating a "web log" months after meeting the web for the first time, so that would be late winter '95 / early spring '96. I was /very/ reluctant in taking up the software ... none of it was doing what I wanted, and all of it felt limiting. (So I was not an early fan of Dave Winer's work, though I knew of him very well back then.)"User cases" ... a technocratic way of acknowledging the foundational value.Would you ever essaie, however slightly, on just what failed to draw you? As you see above, I have objective factoids to hind behind ... the subjectivity of my story is long-gone. (I might be able to conjure it up, if ever I thought it was apropos, which isn't likely.)cheersand again best of '08 to you
Again, synchronicity. ("Wisdom lives in the cracks" ... ponder out-lying data ... now the fractalinear nature of biological activity ... heh, like cold fusion; entirely improbable! *grin*)I happened to be working my various gmail accounts before commenting and so, to verify that I had adopted the right persona (my other 2: one is hippie-dippie and the other is for my Buddhist sangha project) I clicked on my Profile.And I tripped over a datum I hadn't known ... it shocked me, in fact:On Blogger Since January 2002huh huh ... so it took me almost 6 years to start "blogging". ;-P
