Welcome Back, Old Media

Thu, 03/13/2008 - 19:53 -- rprice

Here's a quick follow-up to last night's post.

Earlier today, Ryan Block asked:

Why should I be concerned? People aren’t coming to Engadget to read about gadgets from 2006, or 1996, or 1896 — they’re coming to read about what’s going on today. Still, I love that PopSci, so this is gravy!

Old Media, Welcome to New Media Land

OR "How the battle became a collaboration".

To the Editors of Popular Science:

You win.

Actually, I'm not a quitter, so I'll say this: I've decided that instead of being "versus" each other, some of you Old Media types (can I say Traditional Media? thanks) actually care about your audience. Therefore, we are actually on the same side, you and me. That's why today, I changed the name of my blog to "Ryan Price and the Media". The arc of my story is changing, Act II is beginning (but please wait until the pops are two seconds apart).

5 Essential Firefox Plugins for Web Developers

Wed, 03/12/2008 - 20:04 -- rprice

Since I have a new job, I had to sit down at a fresh installation of Windows today and get my machine developer-ready. I already miss the Dock and Transmit and the Terminal, but I'll deal.

UPDATE: Today (7/14) I sat down to a new MacBook Pro and had to repeat the process... hooray!

One thing I noticed was my reflex-like action to go download 4 5 plugins no web developer should be without. They are, in no particular order:

Don't you love all those form letters you get about "We can get you to the top of search engines", and "I'd like to buy text links from you"? I know I do, and I'm not alone...

My friend Marc, otherwise known as "marc with a c" to the music community of Orlando, has recently decided to let 'em have it. He was contacted by a chain-lettering, canvassing, music rep from Hitt Music Group.

Here's a sample of Marc's reply from his MySpace blog:

New (old) Archives

Sat, 03/01/2008 - 20:46 -- rprice

Thanks to the Internet Archive, I was able to retrieve several of the first blogs I ever wrote back in 2002/2003. Some stuff is indicative of what I write about now - quotes, mostly. Other posts appear to be direct re-postings of something I saw on the web or was sent via AIM. I used to edit a static page and maintain a PHP guestbook, also suggest folks email me with comments.

What's your interest in distributed social networking?

Sat, 02/23/2008 - 09:36 -- rprice

After watching Chris Messina's existential DiSo Interview, I decided to go check out a bit more about the distributed social networking stuff Chris and Steve Ivy have been working on - there are 160+ people on the mailing list now, and hundreds of threads.
