Brian Graf's software blog

Just a friendly reminder to anyone still listening to this channel.  I don't plan on saying anything even remotely interesting here anymore.  My new home is here and the RSS is here.

If you're using radio as your aggregator, I'll probably be hijacking your subscription to the new location sometime next week.

If there is still anyone subscribed to this feed....

I'm happy to announce the grand re-opening of my weblog.  It's new home is here.  The RSS feed is here.  All of the old content of this site also has a new home.

This site will remain active until my Userland subscription runs out - sometime around April (I think).

Oh, Sam - you'll be happy to know that I dropped the "System.Error.Emit" moniker.

Before I go completely dark, I should clarify a couple of things:

1) The tone of the previous post was influenced a little too much by an incident where a certain software package choked and destroyed nearly two hours of my work before it could be shared with all of you.  Chris reminds us to never send an email in anger.  I think the same sentiments apply to blogging.  Lesson learned.

2) The DevCon was a great conference.  The speakers were top notch, interesting, and dynamic.  It was truly a life-changing experience for me.  Thanks again Chris, Tim and all the speakers.  Count me in for the next one.  The conference has inspired me to get moving on something that I have been procrastinating on for months.

3) I am afraid that my blog has come to define me.  When I look at the blogs that I particularly like to read, they are all written by people who aren't defined by their blogs.  I would follow thier carreers whether or not they choose to write about them.  There are quite a few of these non-bloggers that I look up to.  I want my blog to be something that I would enjoy reading if I were someone else.  Right now it's not.  I think it can be more - more gratifying, more interesting, more useful, more fun.

Thanks to everyone for your kind words of encouragement.  I hope you won't be disappointed with the result.  Most importantly, I hope that I won't be disappointed with the result any more.

I think that this may be my last post for a while.  Meeting all the great people and attending all the talks at the DevCon has made me painfully aware of my failings as a technologist.  I was under the mistaken impression that my blogging somehow elevated me to the same league as some of the brightest minds in the industry.  I truely belived that by having bright people link to my blog was somehow a sign that they were endorsing what I had to say.  The problem is that there has never been any substance to what I have blogged about.  If you shoot into the dark enough times, you're bound to hit something eventually.  There is no barrier to entry.  It feels like cheeting.

I want more.

I want to contribute something tangible to this industry.

I want to research things that are technologically interesting.

I want to write essays, articles and books.

I want deep knowledge of topics.

I will be re-launching my site in a few weeks.  It will have a completely different feel to it.  No more fluff.  From now on, the content is of primary importance.  If I do my job, the readers should follow.

Thanks for listening.

Extremely busy today getting things in order before I depart in the morning for the DevCon.  The anticipation is killing me.

Anybody else notice the creative implementation of the Towers of Hanoi problem on Survivor tonight?

Wow! Lots of interest. Wow! Greg and I are just knocked out by the response to our Groove Experiments space announcement. We just about have a full house with all sorts of incredible ideas flying around. We already are starting to see the seeds of some valuable experiments and projects that will contribute to the overall community. I like to think of it as a Hive Mind. Its powerful.

Wow.  It's stubborn this time.  Usually the second post of the month clears Radio of it's constipation.  Not this time :(

Pardon me while I kick-start my blog.

monthly roll-over bugs. Whatever Bryce has seems to be spreading, I had the same problem today, though its the first time I've seen it. [Simon Fell]

This has happend to me every month since I started using Radio.  Each month, more and more people jump up and down complaining about this, but still nothing is fixed.
