Doc's blog tipped me off that Jerry Michalski is writing a blog, Sociate. As you'd expect, it's though-provoking, to wit:
Apply this to blogs. Better to provide a blend that lets readers choose how they'll take part.
First, Weblogs offer only one distribution model: People have to come read your blog at its Web address. Why can't people read each entry as it is posted, if they would like to, as they can with e-mailed newsletters? It is somehow strange that Dave Winer's Radio Userland Weblogging software doesn't allow its users to do what Dave does every day with Scripting News, which is post to his broadcast list and his Weblog.
I'm creating two lists for this one Weblog. The first list, Sociate, is a broadcast list for people who want to see new items quickly, but don't want the e-mail traffic of a discussion list; the second, Sociate-Talk, includes all the outbound posts of the first list, but is meant for people interested in the discussion.
I just subscribed to the Sociate list to see what it feels like.
So I will harvest the best items and set them into a more permanent context, using several tools. The obvious method is to collect similar items into various categories and post them on this Website, which I will do. But Web pages aren't that expressive, so I will also use two more interesting tools: a wiki and my Brain.
Internet Time will be harvesting but not a brain and certaining not a wiki. Maintaining one personal database is about all I feel I can spare time for.
