I’ve been writing a weekly blog post for the Tech section of the Huffington Post. Here are links to what I have written so far:
- Gold Medal For Hacking? CyFi Should Win It — Hacking is competitive sport!
- Data Mining Can Help, Immediately — Let’s stop arguing about mass murder and actually prevent it with tools we have at hand!
- Wikipedia and the Hidden Deletionist Agenda — Don’t be a dictator when it comes to sharing information!
- The Environmental Cost of “Design First” — That phone is cool, but can you safely throw it away?
- CrowdRise: More Fun Than Just Reading the News — Turn the news into actions!
- The Invisible Girl and Why Women Technologists Are Invisible — Tech women represent!
- Facebook App Store: A Challenger Appears — Walled gardens are sprouting every where!
- HyperCard: The Original Bridge Over the Digital Divide — I love letter to my favorite software construction kit!
I’ve learned a lot from writing these blog posts and I’ll continue to do until our editors lock me out of the CMS. Reading the commentors as they alternately boo and cheer, correct my grammar and spelling, and point out technical mistakes is awesome!
Figuring out what to write about is always a panic. I don’t have time prepare and want to tie each post to something topical. The other hard thing is keeping each post short. Nobody, not even me wants to read more than 1500 words of John Pavley 🙂
