Despite everyone’s talk about how important portals are, I think that a successful one is more than a collection of links to sites that are relevant to an industry. While this site is useful to me, I would rather just have a page I built myself with the relevant links(I’m updating my personal portal right now actually.) This one is closer.
I’m trying something new with Bump and my other Web writing. I am making an effort to compose it outside of the context of HTML in Microsoft Word 2000. I’m finding that Dave Winer is right() and that I wish that the tools I use to create my Web code were better writing tools in general. Not that I am going to actually create any kind of Web page in Word, but it’s easier to get my thoughts down clearly without the tags.
