Function follows form.
Since the form of a WordPress blog (which this is) favors writing long pieces over short ones, that’s mostly what I’ve written here, since I started in August 2007. Essays, you might say.
Since the form of a 1999.io blog is writing pieces of any length, and posting them easily from a WYSIWYG editor, I’ve been blogging there instead of here. At least lately. My last post here was on June 29. Since then I’ve put up 31 posts at 1999.io:
- Idle words that aren’t
- Bots vs. Humanity
- Leading thoughts
- The Best Way to Blog
- Looking for something
- Promotion as friction
- Open Source lives, to say the least
- A Cajun network pioneer
- Remembering what they probably never taught you in school
- An Unnecessary Fight: Wired & Condé Nast vs. Customers
- The only code I learned was Morse
- Internet for the 100%
- On the continuing death of over-the-air TV
- The risk of being dead wrong
- What have I done?
- Speaking of dubious
- I loved it
- A fire sale on CBS’ legacy
- Knicks & Nets
- Kinda like mass hypnosis
- Stereo—it’s all in your head now
- Approaching the end of radio’s antenna age
- Some helpful additional AirBnB questions
- AM radio musings in Quebec
- What will Verizon do with Flickr?
- Maybe Canada is the control and the U.S. is the experiment
- Listeners to public radio stations: loose the pre-roll on your live stream
- Waiting for Verizon to screw Yahoo users and customers
- Yahoo users and customers have plenty to cry about
Posting on 1999.io is easier than tweeting. It’s even easier than it was on my original blog, where I posted from 1999 to 2007. Take a look at that one. Note that the posts are any length I liked.
Both systems were created by Dave Winer. Hats off to Uncle Dave for bringing back blogging like it used to be, should have been all along, and shall be again.
