While I eagerly await more idea corners to pop up the idea came to me (on a walk as they do) to create a topic about this idea. There was a name used to define this approach, but sadly it has been co-opted by a company I will not name.
So here I will return now and then to update this idea, outlined in the pinned topic that tries to explain it and the metaphor
I hope it is natural, but the idea of writing publically about one’s work, ideas, came to me in the archeo-days of the web and the excitement of blogging. Influential to me was:
- Cory Doctorow’s My Blog My Outboard Brain (May 2022, originally published at O’Reilly now available via the Internet Archive)
- Jon Udell’s Framing of Narrating Our Own Work (sometime also in 2002, many blog posts on it, example)
- The Question Should be: Why Are You Not Blogging (me, 2012, my own blogged take on it)
But it is not the blogging part that matters, it is the practice. And I believe it can work in many spaces, but am trying to entice others to join me here.
Hopefully I will be sharing when others e.g. you, the reader, maybe you might click a like button, but do more, start your own idea corner. But who knows? I will just narrate my own thinking about trying to convince others to take this on.
