In last week's newsletter I introduced a new concept for this newsletter: a Web log, or blog. You can read that article at http://tinyurl.com/268ad. Forty-three comments were posted on the blog to that one article, almost all of them supporting the new format. I am delighted with this response and plan to continue developing blogs for the Standard Edition newsletters and soon for the Plus Edition as well.
One of the interesting things is that the blog makes it possible to quickly add new articles at any time. I added several during the week, most of which have been republished in this weekly edition of the newsletter. However, if you check the blog at http://blog.eogn.com during the week, you may well find newer articles than what you found in the previous weekly edition.
Here are two brief articles posted after last week's weekly newsletter was sent:
Time Magazine Article on Blogs This week's Time magazine has an interesting article on blogs. You can read it in a Web browser at http://tinyurl.com/ysgpl.
CNN's Intro Article About Blogs
Several months ago CNN published an excellent article that is an introduction to blogs. It also tells how the Web is shifting to this new technology. If you have an interest in the topic, you might want to look at http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/03/15/new.web/index.html.
The new blog is still in beta test. I expect to experiment some more, possibly trying a different blog software package before settling on a final choice. You can see the current experiments at http://blog.eogn.com.
