Fairly late last night Jenny Levine gave me some help and encouragement in my struggle to create a nice looking, well-organized weblog/personal web site. A breakthrough or two resulted!
Then, Dave Winer hit me between the eyes. His advice is "glide a while." He's absolutely correct. I found Scripting News because I bought a book about TrellixWeb (now CuteSiteBuilder) to start learning about web design. Prowling around looking for more info about Trellix, I stumbled into Dan Bricklin's weblog. There he mentioned Dave Winer. I subscribed and began reading Scripting News.
That led to my purchase of Radio. Since January 13th, I've treated this like some kind of sprint to a finish line. I was getting tired, frustrated and discouraged. Dave's note reminded me that I didn't get Radio because I wanted more frustration. I got Radio because I truly believe it and/or its offspring are the future of the web. It is the way to communicate - with customers, with employees, with suppliers and with interested parties.
I'm going to learn how to post a story or article on a separate page of this Radio web site. Once I know how to do that, I'm going to use that document to talk about designing my weblog. It will be similar to the documents Russ Lipton and Jenny have done. But, it won't clutter the work I want to do here each day. To those of you who have endured my diatribes about how to make certain things happen in Radio, thanks for your patience. Some of those diatribes will continue to go on, but I hope they'll be on a separate page.
Dave offered this, "Tell us about yourself, what do you do, where do you live, what are you interested in." We should all do more of that!!
I'm a husband and Dad to three daughters. I want to talk about what's important in making society better for them and their offspring in the decades to come.
I'm a citizen. I want to talk about our government, what our founders intended and where we are relative to that vision.
I'm an engineer and business person. I want to talk about technology, software and the sorry state of employee involvement in lots of organizations; and, techniques for improving those conditions. I want to talk about quality and customer service - how to improve a business and its performance.
I'm an investor. I want to talk about value investing, Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway. I want to tell you more about Level 3 Communications and the future of bandwidth demand in the United States and abroad.
I'm a reader. I want to let you know about books in several fields that belong in your personal library.
I'm a person of faith. I don't want to impose my views on you!
