I think I am nearing my saturation point for new technologies, but perhaps all the more reason to start a blog (yes, I know, blogs have been around for a while). I am fed up with maintaining multiple web sites for various projects. Frankly, I believe that static web sites are archaic and will be replaced… eventually. They certainly have their place if you can a) afford to pay a webmaster or b) have nothing better to do than update your site. For myself, wanting to spend more and more of my creative time either in the studio or working on projects in my community, web maintenance has become a serious burden. Thus I am migrating to a blog to see if it might suffice for presenting my work and keeping my friends and followers informed as to my latest creative pursuits.
I am still waiting for a flexible product that will combine the best of FB, web sites, ning and the like without all that silly stuff like gifts, games, and tweets. Can we not have something for those of us who want to work collaboratively across time and geographies, on multiple projects, sharing images and documents? Well, until that day comes and programmers figure out that some of us have better things to do than tweet our days away, I will see how this blog will meet my needs!
Come back if you’d like to see me try to make some sense of art, life, creativity, sustainability, teaching, learning, and growing older (and hopefully a bit wiser).
