Blogs and Social Software

Full audio of our call with LeeLeFever (20 MB, MP3).
00:00 Introduction
01:00 Blogs versus Discussion Forums

They are different enough to continue to be separate tools.
Lotus of control: in a blog the author calls the shots on where the content goes, in a forum anybody can guide the direction of the conversation.
Deeper look at small group versus broader look at a large group.

05:45 Where do wikis and social network fit in?

A wiki is a storage/archive
Blogs and forums are good at capturing flow.

07:30 Blogs as a million listeners – not just a million voices.
09:00 Using PubSub, Feedster and Technorati to track topics online
14:35 How can blogs best be used by solo professionals?
17:40 Where do keywords have to appear to be picked up by search engines and blog trackers?
18:30 Linking back and forth between a website and a blog.
22:15 Do I have multiple topics on one blog or multiple blogs? (There’s really no right answer)

Too much self-promotion can turn people off.

24:40 What’s a wiki?
30: 40 What is a TrackBack?
34:05 Parting words: RSS’s impact on the horizon.

    ÓWant me to massage that?Ô sheÒd said, laying her hand two inches above the bunched pile of sheet at his crotch. Her voice cracked the quiet like a baseball hitting a window.
