I'm seriously considering moving this blog to tumblr. The whole thing. I've thought about this before, but now I think it might be time. Reasons: 1. tumblr kicks ass 2. tumblr is free 3. tumblr is free. My only hesitation is that my archive will go away. Tumblr has no way of importing a blog archive. I'll likely lose quite a bit of traffic as much of my visits come from search. I'm trying to simplify things, I see this as a good step in that direction.
Has anyone thought about Twitter as a social search application? Today I tried it out. I wanted to know the best burrito place in SF and SC. I got great answers that I totally trust and I didn't have to search. Now the problem with this kind of search is that the "results" are only going to be as good as your network. But if you pool the content together, you could have a decent corpus. This is not Y! Answers, this is something else. Probably just a piece of a complete social search engine.
I'm addicted to Television. I'll admit it. I've had one around all my life. I watch baseball, news, and other shows nearly every night. Can I live without it? I don't know. i'd like to. I can save money and have more time for other stuff. But I love baseball and my family would probably not appreciate it. Maybe we'll try it for a week to see what it feels like.
