Proto. Type.

So rather than over-thinking, I’ve tried to opt for do-ing. Small steps. But msloc430.net is up. I let CogDog be the guide, set up the syndicated category hierarchy, installed the FeedWordPress plugin and let it rip. Bingo. Syn-dication. Really this is just messing around.…

Making peace with ambiguity #msloc430 #wol

I started this post last night, reflecting at the end-of-the-day for day one of our Working Out Loud week. Was a bit too tired to finish it in a coherent fashion. Serendipity. A theme emerged. Along with the coffee. I woke up this morning to a blog post from Helen Crump in which she shares […]
