Daily Thoughts 1/1/2011
Happy New Year to all of you reading this blog. Today, I resolve to make my refrigerator project a success. For the last four months, I have been making notes here and there on a project and adding it to a file on my computer in a haphazard way. It is slowly forming into an amorphous something. It is enough of an amorphous something now to maybe put it up on a website. It is the old throw it against the wall and maybe it will stick idea. I am pondering it every day.
I read some more of Information Architecture for the World Wide Web. The author is writing about different ways to organize information in a web site; topic, task, audience, metaphor, and hybrid methodologies. Information organization is always somewhat political in nature. It is a matter of choice which information gets primacy inside a website.
I am planning on going to the First NYC Digital Show and Tell for eBooks, Ereaders, and Digital Content Publishing on Janurary 20, 2011. http://www.meetup.com/eBooks/calendar/15850362/
I also might try and go to the January 10, 2011, Tech Meetup if anything opens up. http://www.meetup.com/ny-tech/calendar/15792754/
Right now, I feel a bit tired. I tried all I could do for where I worked, but it in the end may not make a difference. I have to think of other things.
