For the Last Lonely Reader

Here’s a toast to the last reader of this blog, after most others likely have chucked it from their RSS boxes and scooted it off the blog rolls. Heck, and my list of unread feed items stretches down to Ecuador. So hello to the last lonely reader of this dog tired blog……

It’s coming up soon on the 4 year CDB anniversary and somewhat fitting since Brian, D’Arcy, Jim Groom, and I are planning a small online event to banter about web tools and such. We started reflecting on the state of the EduWeb when three of us did the Small Pieces/Technologies Loosely Joined back in June 2004. Wow, how long ago that seems! Then it was blogs, wikis, and RSS and today…. well there is just so many many more small pieces.

So as much as I hate to, I likely have a bot of back blogging to do, going back to last week’s EDUCAUSE Focus Session on Immersive Learning environments. And in the next weeks, much more on the work that’s been consuming. Beyond that, thinking again back to 2004 when I had but a single blog, on a regular basis, I have 2 personal blogs, 3 more running sites at NMC, about 5 MediaWikis running there, and I’ve lost count of all the social networking things I’ve signed up for (not being all that social), and trying to find reason and time to be tweeting.

But enough bantering about why the posts have lapsed, not that anyone beyond Cadu really cares. And she doesn’t either.

On we go….

  1. I keep thinking this all started so long ago. Feels like decades. But it’s only been a few years. Wow. Now we’re awash in a sea of small pieces. It was so easy back in the day, on an almost calm pond, to spot the Next Big Thing. Now, it’s this big ocean, with swells and waves. Very difficult to see much at a glance, never mind making connections and predictions. Fun times.

  2. Ironically, it is the fact that I’m following your tweets that is getting me to read your blogs more. How weird is that?

  3. I always keep an eye on this blog, sure posts may sit in the RSS reader for a while begging to be read, but thats the beauty of RSS, it will always tell you when somethings new, and remind you what you haven’t read.

    And i’m still shouting about this Blog to anyone who will listen.
