Notes from 2004

Harold Jarche

I was listening to an interview with Steven Johnson on CBC Spark and he suggested that it’s a good practice to take regular notes (like my blog) but also important to review them regularly. I’ve gone through my 2004 posts, which was my first year of full-time blogging on this site, and here is what still remains interesting. Note that in 2004, blogging was not mainstream yet.

What blogging was

David Weinberger

At a recent Fellows Hour at the Berkman Center the topic was something like “Whatever happened to blogging?,” ” with the aim of thinking about how Berkman can take better advantage of blogging as a platform for public discussion. They asked me to begin with some reflections on what blogging once was, because I am old. I understand that I’m reporting on how blogging looked to someone in a highly privileged position. My blog was me.

Bring on The Live Web

So it was common for Google’s indexes of blogs to be a day or more old. But they mostly covered blogs and sites with RSS feeds. Which made sense, since blogs were the most live part of the Web back then. The practices are blogging and syndication.

Preparing your workforce for tomorrow

a half-baked idea

Harold Jarche

My advice was to start a blog: now. A blog is a good place to do this over time. My early blog posts were pretty bad but they helped me see what ideas I could revisit and build upon. You blog posts will give you something tangible upon which to reflect.

David Weinberger

He replied (paraphrasing!), “If I tell you, how can you trust what I write?,&# to which I replied that if he doesn’t tell us, how can we trust what he blogs?
