good things are happening

Maybe its time to rethink some of these expectations. Maybe we need some of that early internet vibe back and be ok with smaller, closer communities. Maybe we can even get some of the fun back and start exploring again, instead of expecting everything to be automatically delivered to us in real time.

Read this. 👏

from joe jenett aka iwebthings on behalf of the linkport

Sometimes I just have to say thanks - this time to @johnjohnston aka John Johnston for his thoughtful description of the linkport:

Not so much a gold mine as a gold, silver, bronze, and rock mine.

Color me blushing!

And I better say thank you for allowing this needed test too...😎

please allow me to try again fellow linkers

Last month when I wrote about we.Link, my tongue-in-cheek approach though fun for me failed miserably in telling you anything about the project. So please allow me another shot.

You may have noticed a new version of the we.Link widget is back on the sidebar. It now uses lightweight javascript, based on onionring.js - thanks joey + mord!

here’s the deal

Right now, I’m testing we.Link using only some of my own sites, 4 including this site (the ‘hub’). It would be boring to leave it at that. My little linkring widget over there already provides the same functionality with it’s ‘random’ link. At the moment, the only difference between the two widgets, besides navigation choices, is that we.Link is limited to directory-like sites. And that’s the point.

Clicking on ‘we.Link’ sends you to a random member site (other than the one you’re on). It’s a compact, minimal, and easy-to-add widget.

If you have a directory, blogroll or some other linking site, I might want to invite you to join my little network. I know of several readers with sites I’d love to include. If you have a directory-like site and you’re willing to add a few lines of code to your site, please let me know.


Obsidian Release v1.0

For the record, I like the new look and feel of Obsidian 1.0. You can see what’s new in the Release Notes.
