This is my foray into the weblog world. I downloaded Movable Type a few weeks ago, and just now finally got it Installed and running. Ran into a few perl problems that had me frustrated. But, it seems to be working. Then edited the style sheet, hacked around a few other things, and viola – it seems to work.
I used to work at Remarq, which was a company providing web-access to usenet. (It was later acquired by Critical Path). I must say, the whole blogging concept looks very very similar to usenet. Sure, the technology is a little different, but the concepts are the same – people can publish topics, ideologies, etc, others can read it, and then you can get whole threads of conversations going. So, I find this interesting… Its also interesting to read about people stumbling into many of the same issues that Usenet stumbled into.
Oh yeah, and I had chicken for dinner.
