Here's what's floating around my brain, on the first day returning to work, life, and regular blogging:


- The deleted comment. Why was a comment deleted, within the Avent Ferry fire discussion? Here’s a slightly longer explanation. An anonymous user posted a question about a named user. They were asking about/calling attention to the second party’s comments on the blog. The posted question was worded with more antagonism that I was comfortable with, at that time. I suggested to the user— and suggest to all users— that questions about other users be phrased as direct questions to them. And, obviously, be more polite than otherwise. Alternately, you can ask for a user’s contact information, and ask them the question off of the blog. But, you know, “calling out in public” is perhaps more compelling to some folks, than asking a private question. As always, be advised, just mail me with questions about your own postings, future postings, my postings, etc.

- Had some ideas, while driving, of maybe adding guest bloggers. Calling for postings, and inviting users/readers to write or talk about something. The only catch: you’d have to sign your name. I would edit for clarify, but otherwise publish as presented. And we’d include a disclaimer that you were (a.) speaking for yourself or (b.) speaking as a representative of some organization. Wonder if that would fly? Meaning, would anyone want to submit anything? I think this blog has WAY more interested readers/lurkers than participating posters. Still mulling. But do keep shooting me ideas for topics, announcements to post, news stories that have caught your eye, and such.
