The Big Top is Open
For better or worse, I now have a functional circus tent that covers just about everything I'm doing in this wacky digital world.
Thanks to my ed-tech-design gal, Kate Olson, for walking me through some of the scary parts the last few days. Hope I made her proud:
Luddite is as Luddite Does
The tricky part of being a tech luddite in this web 2.0 day-n-age is that some things still take 'under the hood' know how.
'Cause You Know He's Got a Point!
Through the celebratory chiming of summer wedding bells out on Catalina Island, I swear I can hear that dy/dan fella smacking his that's what I've been tellin' you, buddy! buzzer right about now.
Sort of a related thesis to one of the many expert v. engaged amateur threads he's been rightfully developing since many of you/us were in web 2.0 diapers.
Please Hold My Hand (aka "Steal My Wallet")
This is of particular interest to me every time I daydream the crazy idea of aggregating all of my blogs, digital projects, consulting/speaking elements, and various this-n-that elements under one central digital big top.
Sure, a fell can easily drop a decent chunk of change on as many domains as he wants.
But he still has to figure out how to code/design those web domain addresses so that become actual web sites.
That could drive a brother to re-invest in paper and slide rules.
...what was that?
You're telling me that all I had to do was finally take that WordPress contraption seriously?
You mean I didn't need to be paying my TypePad homeboys a cool 3-figures of my allowance every year like clockwork?
There Ain't No Door Prize for That
Who do I talk to about a refund?
Or at least a bit of edu-tech school 2.0 sympathy?
