reblog

January 10, 2010

Giving life to an old and abandoned blog is called reblogging.

I thought about independently and wished to coin this new term today, but alas, found that Raiedzall had already done it 6 months ago here.

Good! If not for the free and wide internet, wouldn’t many invention efforts be duplicated?

How many man years would have been spent on re-inventing the wheel?

and how much more power given to the centralized repositories of knowledge ?

The internet is the greatest accelerator of mankind’s progress.

I hope I am at least the first one to make this quote 😉

More thoughts –

Blog posts get written easily when you sit down to write them and start

Maybe i’ll try to write every wednesday and sunday.


returns from a blog

October 25, 2008

excerpts from here, an interview of Seth Godin who writes a very good blog

JS: Oh, it is the top marketing blog. I run another site that’s on that list… I think we’re around 565th. You win. Anyway, let’s talk blogs. Talk about the way yours has contributed to your individual brand, and why that’s so important.

SG: The best measure of a blog is not how many people it reaches, it’s how much it changes what you do. Changes your posture, your writing, your transparency, your humility. What blogging has done for me is made me think. I get to think about how the outside world will understand something I’m trying to do, for example.

This means, of course, that you get almost all of the goodness of a blog long before you have a lot of readers.


world’s longest comment

July 8, 2008

today, after readding a very interesting blog post here, i started writing in the comments. it carried on and on and on, like had never happened before! after a full blog posts’ worth of material, finally i stopped. read it here. of course if its not removed by the author for having exceeded the readers patience.

it was through my RSS reader google reader, but now you can even insert ads in feeds – check out feedburner.com [and google bought it recently].

and wordpress.com had gone https – to add new post, to change settings, everything. and 256 bits! hmm. wonder if it’ll hurt mobile bloggers. [what Sid ?]

and tag suggest! at least the first time i’m seeing it!
