Like so many other bloggers, I’m trying out a new feature from del.icio.us which allows me to publish each day’s bookmarks as a blog post. The theory behind it? There’s a lot of great sites and posts I tag every day but don’t blog because I have little to add beyond thinking a particular link is cool.
One interesting implication – you guys get to discover some topics that I’m actively researching but haven’t blogged about, like large-scale wind farms, one of my current obsessions.
I hope this is useful and not an intrusion into your aggregators – if it is, let me know and I’ll reconsider.
West Texas project using 100+ 1.5MW turbines from GE
GE’s wind turbine site, with product info on the 1.5, 2.x and 3.6MW turbines
Beautiful story by Andrew Heavens on death in the streets of Addis Ababa
EXCELLENT overview of issues surrounding the EASSy fiber cable in East Africa
Small US company building 2-blade turbines, demo’d 500kw turbine recently
Denmark’s largest wind company, large range of turbines from 850kw to 4.5Mw offshore. some use very short (40m) towers
Excellent engineering-focused article on the growth of wind power and on turbine design
David Weinberger doesn’t read my blog. Sniff.
My friend Isam Bayazidi – Jordan’s leading open source developer – takes questions about FOSS from the Slashdot community
Lisa has a moving recollection of Hao Wu
Tomas Krag takes a close look at wifi security, specifically at the challenges FON is likely to face. Pretty amazing tour of WLAN security issues… gives me a lot of reading to do to get smarter about this stuff
hey ethan, i did the same thing, for the very same reasons, but ended up using a wordpress del.icio.us plug-in (del.icio.us cached) to present my travels across the web (greensboro101.com dropped my feed due to the nature of the content)
the plugin generates a del.icio.us links list — 10 links long — in your sidebar and updates each time you bookmark a new permalink.
more goodness ;)
del.icio.us allows anyone to subscribe to any users feed via rss.
I think advertising your del.icio.us feed will be a better idea.
Allows for readers to opt-in as opposed to it being forced at us. (no malice meant, just making a point)
For example I don’t read koranteng’s blog but i subscribe to his del.icio.us feeds.
By using one of the links provided in the above post, I am now subscribed to http://del.icio.us/rss/ethanz
Just my 2 cedis
