I've been kicking around a bunch of ideas regarding what to do with my little corner of the Electronic Cottage. When Hal McGee first approached me to be a contributor, I think the idea, at that point, was for Electronic Cottage to be more along the lines of an online magazine than what it has evolved into, which is somewhere between a magazine and a forum/blog (not knocking it. I like the current direction, and maybe this was Hal's intention from the beginning). Even though I remain somewhat undecided about what to present here, I still like the idea of a "magazine" and I'm committed to providing some kind of "magazine-like" content, as opposed to treating my page as a personal blog (not knocking that either, if that's the approach others want to take). So, what this page won't be about is me. At least...not just about me. I mean, c'mon, there's gotta be some W.A.Davison in there or it will be completely boring! ha ha...jokes...
Anyway, who says I have to choose one idea and stick to it? Ha! When has that ever been MY modus operandi? Never, that's when! So, what I'm thinking may happen here is a number of "series" of articles - the interview series, the collaboration series, the cowboy series, the inflatable rubber raft series, the infinite flyspeck series, etc. - you get the idea. Hmmm, now that I start listing these things, it all sounds WAY too ambitious! I think I might just do the "lying in bed not doing anything" series. Yes, that sounds good.
While the above still holds true...mostly...the ever-changing nature of Electronic Cottage has dictated a change in approach to my personal page. We used to have a section where people could post one-off news items. That section is gone. News items have to be posted on one's personal page now. This means my page here at EC will contain occasional mentions of things I'm involved in, in addition to the articles I will be contributing.
