  • Even a "Hater" Like Me
    the sycophants would call a hater But I remember a time when Apple devices were mainly the precision tools of the creative class I remember the one Apple IIGS desktop we had in my high school and how twice a month I would pack it up and take it home to spend an evening putting together the entire student newspaper layout clipart and all in a single evening in my bedroom in Aldus PageMaker Almost 20 years later I still look back at my time with that off white plastic brick fondly I remember the careful consideration of where each story would reside on the page how image selection size and placement afforded the final product a feeling of gestalt and how the glow of that tiny monitor on my childhood desk filled my room as the sun set outside my window In the morning I would pack the IIGS into my red Pontiac Grand Prix and carry it safely back to school before dawn where I would meet my English teacher re assemble the workstation on her desk in the classroom print one copy and make my way to the office to run 1oo or so front and back copies of the four 8 5 x 11 pages which made up that edition which I would personally deliver to every classroom during first period I had created something of value I had created a product which brought information and meaning and joy to the lives of my friends and neighbors And I couldn t have done it without Steve Jobs Jobs was a great man A respected man He made a difference In your life In mine And his passing is significant to the fabric of our digital culture from the earliest equipment enabling the creation of quality printed

  • Building a New Community: First Steps
    beta When something is said to be in beta we tend to think it s not quite done yet That might be a turn off for some people who feel it s a sign of poor preparation or something but I see it as a target Allow me to put it this way In beta might mean not done yet but is community development ever really done Beta means staying focused on the user experience on functionality on scope design cause and effect Beta is all about due diligence Are you seriously thinking about investing all this time and energy into building a new community only to dust off your hands and call it a day Sorry It doesn t work that way Changing direction I can envision this project going one way but it might end up that the most active members of the community lead it in another direction That s fine by me My role as a community developer is to propose the focus provide the environment and encourage participation by sharing my own perspectives and ideas We do this together I m not just a creator I m a member The goal of Gearbox Magazine is to connect people and ideas changing perspectives and providing members with not only news they re not likely to find anywhere else on the web but to share stories of real people with whom they can immediately identify If I m not an active member of my own community I lose sight of our mutual values and culture and it s a recipe for disconnect and failure The point I know I tend to be wordy The point is planning and preparation can only take you so far Those are activities which go on in something of a vacuum You

  • Working in Strip Mine City
    is no reason why a modern community shouldn t have seamless high speed wireless internet connectivity within its borders Strip Mine City is no exception The telecommuter will enjoy the same connectivity in her home office her back yard at the light rail station on the rail in the park downtown at a meeting or in the conveniently located community organized co working venues allowing her to deliver consistent quality service to her clients around the world The Small Business Owner I see SMC being a great place for the small business owner Going into business could be as simple as opening that first location right in your own neighborhood Perks include working less than a 10 minute walk from your own front door working for yourself and serving your neighbors How s that bound to impact referral business What s more because the locations are likely made from the same recycled shipping containers as most of our homes expansion square footage and market is relatively inexpensive Partner with your friend in the next neighborhood to open another location or simply add floorspace We ve already got the digital connectivity and and rail infrastructure to get people and product where it needs to be just in time Workin for the City It s not all local markets and virtual office assistants in Strip Mine City We re going to need people with hands on skills to help us maintain that infrastructure We ll need professionals to deliver five nines on our city wide wifi just like we ll need people to keep the light rail and funicular running police fire construction workers and more In a way everyone in SMC would be working for the city If everyone believed in their city I think the line between work and play

  • Thinking About Analytics, Part 2
    the picture below the new item shooting to the top position is version 2 0 Divide one by the other and you see a solid 222 increase in traffic quarter over quarter for just that one That second greenie on the list a custom project tracker began it s life in 2nd place Q2 dropped to 5th in Q3 rose back to 2nd in Q4 and is currently trending in 2nd place 2 3 of the way through Q1 Another resource strategically designed to help people their jobs done more efficiently this one seems to be evolving monthly seeing greater than 200 average growth quarter over quarter Q1 There s still a full month left before the end of the quarter but the resource library is still on top by a solid margin and is on track to return greater than 120 growth Thinking about it a little more if my estimations aren t too off the cuff the project tracker should see greater than 130 These two seem to be tracking within a couple thousand hits of each other so it could go either way by Thanksgiving KM Lesson 2 Give people a centralized place to find what they need to do their jobs and provide them with tools to organize and track their efforts Again how is this different from blogging and all that Speaking of lessons I ve learned a big one with regard to community development in this exercise Going back to Q2 all the way at the top the 3 resource was a community we set up for a specific group At the end of Q3 we d enjoyed a 270 increase in traffic but it soon dropped to 7th place with a 23 drop in traffic Today it s down to 9th place and
