We'll see | Matt Zimmerman

a potpourri of mirth and madness

Joining the crowd

It looks like this blogging business isn’t going away.  There’s only one thing for it: start a blog.  I hope that it will help me to practice free and unrehearsed expression, and to remember to read others’ blogs.

I’m using wordpress on a single recommendation, and I hope that I can get all of my posts back out of this thing in case I decide to use something else.

Watch this space for musings on technology, cognition, social behavior and whatever else comes.

  1. Ooh, I just noticed your blog for the first time, glad you started doing it. You often convey great ideas in mailing lists and IRC, and I hope that you get more of them into your blog, since it will make it more accessible to so many people (and more Google-friendly too).

    Most decent blogging software can slurp your posts up via RSS, so that shouldn’t be a problem. I quite like WordPress myself, but I prefer to self-host it on my own domain rather than use a wordpress.com account.

  2. Great to have you in the blogosphere, now you can start using other pointless buzzwords like “glocalism” and “wikization”

    Also, get the OpenID plugin if you can.

  3. Thanks!

    I don’t think wordpress.com lets me install arbitrary plugins, though it seems to support acting as an OpenID provider by default. I assume you want it to let you use your LiveJournal ID to post here, which I would expect to work but can’t test.

    FYI, wordpress.com offers an export function which dumps everything as XML (including comments).

  4. This can only be good.

    Matt, it’s been /so/ long since our last meetup I was surprised to see hair on your account pic. Something that needs fixing (lack of meeting, not the hair ;)
