Today I mentioned my fascination with IKEA stores opening in Denver. A friend was talking about how she wanted some new office furniture - Room and Board felt too expensive for what she needs and Scandinavian Design was her best choice. What should she do? I recommended IKEA and lamented the fact that we didn't have one...
So, I read this post in the digg blog with much fascination.
it shows this:
digg_url = \'URLOFSTORY\';
Which is pretty cool because then it makes it easier for users to digg a story on your site even if they found the story through some other means. But there's a pretty huge problem with the widget...
The workflow for this is something like:
- write story
- wait for someone to digg story
- find URL of the digg story
- add widget to my site
Because then the workflow would be something like
1. write story
And that's clearly a better workflow.
If the answer is "we just can't do that" then I've got a surprise someone else will do a better job and you'll be forgotten.
Search Engine Strategies is a major conference for search engine people. It's coming to Denver in September. Too bad the agenda is so weak.
I'm not planning to go...but I've got to at least mention it.
So, I've written about our need for an
Ikea in Denver, Boulder, or just the Front Range of Colorado. I'm not picky - I'll drive 2 hours to get there. I just want it within 2 hours and not the 15 hours to Phoenix.
It should be a great time. I plan to present my favorite technology of the moment - <a href="http://drupal.org>Drupal and if I can get off my buttocks perhaps write and show off one of the modules I've been thinking about writing.
Fiber? or wireless?
At the end of the article they say
"People talk about the risks of doing this," says Michael Render, who tracks fiber buildouts for RVA, the research firm. What they should be talking about, he says, is the risk of not building out fiber. "The world is changing very rapidly."
