Technology Tales

Adventures & experiences in contemporary technology

A case of cross-fertilisation

23rd May 2007

Having two blogs allows me to stream my content; I doubt that many visitors to my hillwalking blog would appreciate seeing posts on, for example, the minutiae of UNIX shell scripting. However, as disparate as these worlds are, there is something shared between them and it has started to cause some cross fertilisation between them: blogging itself. Rather than being too self referential on my hillwalking blog and preaching to the choir, I have taken the decision to muse of blogging and its progress right here. There is also some escape in the opposite direction too: technology does get used on the hill too. Examples include GPS receivers and digital mapping and my hillwalking blog is definitely the place for them. It is all very much audience driven and this consideration of content is the sort of thing on which a posting on The Blog Herald has been musing.
