Ramify – The Archives 2001 – 2005

November 30, 2006

Ramify – bloggen bliver ikke længere opdateret. Jeg blogger nu på Mediehack om webjournalistik, sociale medier og blogs.

Ramify er lukket som aktiv blog

Ramify overgår derfor til at være arkiv for mine blogpost på dels Kelmoweb og siden Ramify fra 25. Juni 2001 til 18. maj 2006.

The Ramify – blog is no longer updated. I’m now only blogging at Mediehack. From now on is only an archive for my blogposts from the first six years.

Ok: Goodbye to Typepad – Hello to Good Old WP

May 16, 2006

Typepad was not me, so I’ve headed straight back to WordPress to juice up ramify.

Maybe, maybe, maybe it can – again – serve as my international card to the globe when not blogging in danish at Mediehack.

Everyone! is afraid of Google

December 22, 2005

Wired asks – and answers – in it’s December Edition: "Who’s afraid of Google.Everyone!" . The article lists all the areas that Google has been spreading into the last few years – places where others have build up huge operations: search in books, classifieds, video, telecom, operating systems, print, productivity programs and e-commerce – and we could add blogging, mail, hosting, mapping.

The attitude is slowly shifting amongs people – to concern and a bit like the attitude towards Microsoft – still seen as the huge corporate monster who want’s to control our minds and net-life. Interesting to see how Google will adress that challenge.

Typepad imperfections

December 19, 2005

Okay – to all luck for Typepad I’ve no access to DSL these days – so I couldn’t post to ramify. But bummer – the service was down for days. That’s just not good enough – for Christ sake. Maybe Typepad only will be a short acquaintance :-(.

Switched to typepad

December 15, 2005

My first post in my new system – The reason is simple – and sad. I’ve run ramify since 2002 – to have a english weblog – to be able to engage in the global discussion.

I started out with – excellent system with a very good userinterface. Then moved to wordpress ‘cauuse of the db-features – It crashed during an update – and I choose b2evolution. In some sense a good system – but without the same drive as wordpress talking about developercommunity.

A week ago I was meet with this disgusting message: "MySQL error! Error selecting database [dan10956_bvlt1]! Are you sure the databaseexists? Are you sure there is a valid database connection?"

So – they got me. I’ve have no idea what to do – and won’t bother. I’m done with b2evo and now moves on to typepad and hosted services. I’ll have less customisation but – hopefully – more security on updates. I’m tired of using my time on speculating on updates, presentation and tech-stuff.

I’m journalist, writer, contentprovider. That’s my core business so to say.
