For some reason, my daily blog post function on delicious flaked last nite. No links. No clue why. My little “thingy,” as they call it, seemed to be set up properly. Oh, well. No matter. I sort of like doing it manually, anyway. Maybe I’ll do it this way for a while. It’s more flexible, actually. I can rapidly collect and tag the links via delicious, which is the real time savings, and then play with the order and format and add longer comments, etc. We’ll see. Anyway, here are yesterday’s links:
Back to Old School Blogging / tags: blogs timemanagement
Totally agree. Cutting comments is a good way to save time — something I’m running short of myself these days. I’m sure I’ll cut comments in the future. Right now I don’t get enough garbage in my comments (most are helpful, actually), but if it just becomes all crap I’ll have no problem flipping the “off” switch.
Is a blog without comments still a blog? / tags: blogs
More from those who think that blogs must to have comments if they are to be considered blogs at all. Nice. Nothing like choice and independence and openness, eh? This conversation reminds me of high school.
No Comments Pushback / tags: blogs
Russell Beattie: “I will publish this weblog how I want, about what I want and you read if you want. That’s it, very simple.” Works for me. Blogs are personal journals, and the blogger should have the last say, not a judgmental mob.
OpenSolaris buzzes Red Hat / tags: opensource opensolaris
Alan Burlison on O’reilly noticing the buzz around NetBeans. Seems OpenSolaris is mentioned as well. I’m not surprised at all. The conversation around OpenSolaris on the net has been steadily growing and will continue to grow as we open more of this system.
OpenSolaris Charter / tags: opensolaris opensource
Stephen Hahn published the current OpenSolaris Charter. We’re getting close to finalizing this. Once the Charter is approved, the CAB will move to governance discussions.
