About web-logging

Link: Source Forge
Well, the world of the web-log is bigger than I thought. It also appears to be a bit incestuous, which is an interesting paradox. I’ve been adding interesting logs to my bookmarks for the last couple of weeks, but it has become clear that I am not going to have time to read them all.

I also can’t help but suspect that people pouring out their hearts and souls on-line is just another manifestation of a talk-show desire to “be famous”. As I said a few entries ago, seeing one’s words in print is a buzz, and now that the Web is here, we can publish as much as we like, as often as we like.

So, wise-guy, what am I going to do about it?

I don’t know, but maybe I’ll keep up appearances, and post URLs to things that I think my adoring public need to read about.

So, here we are. Source Forge, a site hosting free software project development. It looks extremely slick. I’m about to move across a long-running project of my own. There’s already a blurb there about it, but no source yet.
