I’ve been inconsistent in posting here. While I enjoy noting observations and proposing arguments, something hasn’t been working for me. I think that has to do with the format. For me, ideasonideas is about lengthier pieces—almost essays. The problem I run into is having something to say—but perhaps not quite that much.
For a while, I played with Tumblr, but it felt wrong. The medium feels more suited to cultivating visual memes than plain words. I also started writing a book called The Design Method, which is coming together nicely, but a longer-term project. So, I started filling text documents with small posts and just leaving them on my desktop. Eventually, it seemed like I should post these somewhere.
So, we put together something new, better suited to shorter posts. (It’s also nice on mobile devices.) I have a bad habit of starting things like this and abandoning them, so I make no promise to keep it up-to-date, or even active. For the time being, though, I have a sufficient number of posts in mind to necessitate the new outlet.
In the meanwhile, I want to thank you for reading the posts here. I sincerely appreciate all the feedback readers like you have given over the years, and the great dialogues that ensued. This little blog has resulted in meeting a lot of nice folks, and I’m grateful for that!
