The next steps


Fiddling around with toto & the blog_helper extension, I realized two things:

  • Having total control over your blog is awesome! In theory, you’re able to customize everything & connect all kinds of necessary and unnecessary services.

  • Having total control over your blog is cruel! In practice, I’m customizing everything & connect all kinds of necessary and unnecessary services.

The latter results in zero blog posts for over two weeks, which is not good at all.

So what are we going to do about it? How are we bringing some order into that creative chaos?

And I use the word “we” on purpose here.

I had a real fun time when you guys successfully guessed the color I picked for my new espresso machine in a twtpoll.

Now, I’m going a step further.

How about this: let’s just crowd-source the decision for the next feature I’ll hack for this blog. I think a nice little gadget that’s missing is a history of recent activities on my favorite social networking services (after twitter & forrst): twitpic and foursquare.

So, please join the fun & take control over the future development of this blog – don’t ask what this blog can do for you, ask what you can do for this blog!

Enough pathos, let’s get back to the fun part of this. Please participate & enjoy the following poll:


I’m totally looking forward to seeing how you decide this time.

Let’s get some more hacks going! Erm, I mean: let’s decide what hack to get going next!
