Having a Different Perspective
My last week on the web project is going to be pretty dull. That's OK as I can do some research for the last chapter of the .NET book I'm working on. Just out of curiosity, I decided to do a search on the web site's URL on Google. Oddly enough, it came up on a couple of place, one being a fairly popular site among techno-geeks (although I never visit it as the signal-to-noise ratio is too low and I don't have the time to wade through it). Somebody objected to a section on the site, and the typical posts came through. The funny thing is that I developed this site and I know why it was made. Most if not all of the posts were not correct. Yet to read the off-base theories that were offered up still made me chuckle.
By the way, this is an excellent example of why I don't visit newsgroups or read heavily-posted sites anymore. There's just too much crap there. The RSS aggregator has become king in my surfing experience - I rarely visit sites anymore unless I'm really bored (and that's a big reason why I haven't updated my site to its' new look yet because I don't see a pressing reason to have a nice look to it...although I'll eventually get around to it). Being able to filter out the junk from the jewels makes things so much easier to take in these days.
While we're on the topic of RSS feeds - does Fark have one?
