  Weblogs: Simplifying Web Publishing

IEEE Computer MagazineWeblogs: Simplifying Web Publishing by Charlie Lindahl and Elise Blount (registration required). There is a companion blog for this article, but there is not much there.

3 pages popular tech article about weblogs: intro, a bit on comsumer-producer blur, a lot on blogging system features (separating content from presentation, templates, blogger APIs, information management, syndication), a bit on expected integration with mobiles.

For my taste, technical aspects of blogging are described well, but there is totall miss of social aspects (may be the fact that I wasn't able to find the authors blogs in Google explains it ;). I don't believe that the best thing of blogs is easy webpublishing.

And a quote:

There are two basic blog styles: filters and journals. The filter style focuses on a collection of links to other Web sites. The journal style is an online personal diary with dated entries presented in a "stream of consciousness." Both styles use headlines and excerpts -- putting the most recent entry at the top of the Web page -- to entice readers to investigate further.

This makes me wondering what is the style of my blog? Somewhere in between? And I don't have excerpts :)))

Nothing new, but nice to know as a paper reference on tech side of blogs.

  Preparing for KM Europe

Last few months I was asking very often "is there a chance you will be at KM Europe?" I'm asking it once more, so if you are coming please write me.

KM Europe starts on Monday.  I'm really looking forward to it. It will be a great opportunity to meet many people I know only "digitally" via weblogs or Knowledge Board. It's also great to meet most of KM Summer School 2003 team again and to get to know new people. 

I'm trying to plan my own program at KM Europe. There are many things going in parallel, so I'm trying to get a bit of orientation.

If you haven't noticed it yet - the conference web-site is awful. There is no one place to get an overview of all events (this is not entirely true - you can get something like it via your booking page, but you have to book them and not everything is there). There is no exibition plan yet (two days before the event), and I wasn't able to find a link to travel details (you can book a flight, but there is no link to finding it in Amsterdam).

So, some quick links: travel to Amsterdam RAI (conference venue), KnowledgeBoard at KM Europe 2003. I'll post my own planning later on...

There is some e-mailing going on between KM bloggers, we are very likely to meet on Monday. I will post about it as soon as there is some clarity.
