Hello world!

Published by at 5:32 pm under Technology

Setting up a blog — getting all the technology right — is a bit of a project, even though I hear tell it’s just the beginning. I’ve been thinking about what to do and how to do it for a couple of months. There are lots of decisions, aesthetic, functional and technical. Not to mention questions about what to say, to whom, and about what.

At this point, I see the goal of this blog as gathering all the observations, insights, and work that I do in different venues into one place. For the past eight years I’ve been completely immersed in understanding and supporting communities of practice, which often has involved a degree of self-effacement that puzzles friends, colleagues, and clients. It’s time to say, “Hello World!” So, Howdy!

Fortunately there are a lot of good examples out there, so if you see that I’ve copied something from your blog, I hope you’ll consider it a compliment, whether I’m copying an esthetic element, a functional feature, a technical hack, or a marketing strategy. 🙂
