Well, I have created a Technorati Profile and I needed to create this post to claim it. So now it’s done!
There are many blogs and sites out there that list the myriad of IBM bloggers. I actually have a few listed in my own blogroll, but that is just a small list of the people! You have to realise that IBM is a huge company, so there is bound to be a bunch of IBMers who blog out there. I would not dream of recreating such a list – the maintenance would just be a nightmare. However, I do believe in trying to publicise what IBMers do! So here are a few links to where you can find other IBMers who blog on their own:
- Elias Torres’ Unofficial List of IBM Bloggers
- Richard Schwartz’s (a non-IBMer) “The Hitchhiking Blogger’s Guide To IBM Blogs”
- IBM’s developerWorks blogs
One of the interesting blog to check out is eightbar (named, I assume, in reference to the eight horizontal bars making up the IBM logo). This blog is all about the presence of IBMers in the SecondLife virtual world. [Note to self: I do have to get a new video card so I can join that community!]
IBM also has a thriving internal blogging community and I would invite any IBMer out there to go visit it (contact me if you have no idea where it is)!
After Kelly, it’s my turn to move out… From this point on, I will be blogging from my new WordPress blog. I will be manually transferring some of the posts I already have here, but there will be no further updates…
Why am I moving? Well, first of all, the editor actually properly recognises HTML. I can type in HTML and I will not see my entries mungled. Also, I find the themes are nicer, and perception is fairly important on the web!
See you at the new location!
I hate talking about myself, being an INTP (at least, the last time I took the test)…
However, as these things are pretty much standard, I have filled in the “About” page of this blog.
I actually like the idea of being able to have some standalone pages. I think it does help highlight certain aspects of the blog, without taking away from the conversational focus of such a communication vehicle. Nice touch for WordPress!
