Change of posting style

I had become increasingly aware that a lot of my posts on this blog have just been link posts. In reaction to this I wanted to find a way to make it easier for me to make these posts.

To do this I've gone the Google Reader and del.icio.us route.

You'll see widgets for the two of these at the side now.

If something is really worth a comment, I'm likely to still make a real post about it, but most of my re posts will be via these routes now.

This may mean I post less in future, but hopefully it will mean that I can concentrate on writing posts of more value, rather than just links.

A semantic web? (not)

Is this really what Tim Berners-Lee meant when he coined the term 'semantic web'? He talked about machines learning by looking at data and seeing how it is related. Surely this is people teaching machines.

Items shared in Google reader

Having just changed to start using Google Reader (having previously used SharpReader, Outlook2007 & IE7). I can now make it easier to include lots of interesting other post from other blogs in mine. Should lead to more frequent posting (seemingly) from me.
