So, I’ve had this site up for a hot minute, and I’ve been thinking about a direction I might want to take it in. There are basically three things that get me going in life: Technology, music, and cars. I’ve already posted a bit about technology on here. I’ve talked about newsgroups, text based video games (if you can consider that to be technology), and posted a video about the history of dance music. Nothing about cars yet, but I’m sure that will come up pretty soon. I would be more inclined to post about cars, except a guy that I follow on facebook is already doing a better job than I could ever hope to do. Seriously, his site is the best site on the internet (something that I’ve informed him of). It’s car porn to the max.
So that leaves technology and music. I think that could be a good mix. It would be dope as hell if I could get featured on Hype Machine or something like that. It would primarily be concerned with dance music, as thats what I listen to on a regular basis. I know my site wouldn’t be the next Resident Advisor or 365mag, but I would like sharing music that makes me happy. So then the question of how to host the music comes up. From what I remember, a lot of the sites on Hype Machine host their content locally. Thats all well and good, but the upload I pay for isn’t very fast, so that could be frustrating. One concept that I haven’t messed with is using my Drop Box account. Drop Box supports public links for the use of sharing files, and that would probably be a lot faster than sharing from my own server. But then that gets into copyright stuff and it would royally suck if my Drop Box account got deactivated.
Technology is also a passion of mine, and creating a blog about technology seems less risky. I know quite a bit about technology, and it’s a topic I enjoy educating others on. I’ve been using Mac for a long time, in addition to linux. I haven’t been using linux much lately, although I do have it on one of the hard drives in my computer. I haven’t spread the linux gospel in a while, so maybe this is my soapbox to stand on.
I know there are a lot of bullshit blogs out there and I don’t want mine to turn into one of them with a bunch of random crap that no one cares about. I suppose seeing that BBS documentary inspired me to start up the site again. BBSes were a little different because those were communities. My blog is less of a community and more of a soapbox. However the people in the documentary talked about how much they enjoyed creating something that was beneficial for other people. You could hear a sense of pride when they talked about the BBSes they ran, and I’d like to experience that too. What do you think? Lemme know in the comments or drop me a line.
