Dream a little dream

Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper “I love you”
Birds singing in a sycamore tree
Dream a little dream of me.

Mama’s and Papa’s Dream a Little Dream of Me

I can’t possibly be the only person who builds up unrealistic expectations, only to have the dawn of day and the smell of coffee make you realize that honey child, you can dream all you want, you’re just not going to get what you’re dreaming for. Of. About. Is that a dangling participle?


Short form, Long form

I can see that others have added some input to the short form, long form, RSS debate, including our own Mike SandersMeryl Yourish, and dare I say community newcomer, Will Leshner, as well as Dave (of course), and Jon Udell.

I think in some ways, Jon, you and I will probably never agree on the importance of RSS, because you see weblogs as a source of information, and RSS enables this. I see weblogs as part of my community, interconnecting with other communities through links related to stories, or meeting within comments or even blogrolls. Your approach is automation, my approach is less efficient, but effective for me.

Ultimately in the end, as Meryl eloquently puts it, there is no right or wrong way to write a weblog. And RSS is just an associated technology — nothing more, nothing less.
