I see my job as, in part, community building, and as part of that, lots of experimentation. Today, I’m pleased to announce the launch of a new (experimental) HyperMicroBlog named SLGeek (join now)
I will be blogging everything – all blogging all the time, at least while I’m working, often when I’m just thinking about work — though topics may range beyond work, and you are fairly warned that you may learn ore about me than you care to know.
(Intensive blogging begins later this morning and won’t stop for at least one week)
The goal is that I’ll be recording not only what I’m working on but what I’m thinking about what I’m working on; as well as who I’m talking with, what we’re talking about (when it isn’t confidential), and anything else I can possibly tell you about what is going on.
Expect the blogging to come in bursts, but there will be lots of it.
To keep this from being entirely absurd, in this blizzard of words you should (if this goes as I hope) find tidbits about what I’m working on that won’t be posted for a while, what my team is thinking about that isn’t a big deal secret, what I find interesting that you might (or might not) and most important, have a chance to feed back to me and even more important discuss with others where I’m nuts, wrong or just off the rails. To facilitate that, I’m setting up two places for community feedback:
- First, you can write to me directly, but I almost certainly won’t respond (except when I grab your email and plunk it into this blog) at slGeek@jliberty.com.
- Second you can post your thoughts, but I almost certainly won’t respond, and my not have time to even keep up to date) on a public discussion site I’ve created (you may have to join to post, but it is free).
It is the forum that I hope will prove most interesting. Feel free to discuss anything there and if you need more folders, write to slGeek@jliberty.com and let me know.
NB: This is an experiment. We’ll see how it goes.
