Well, I’m resistant to change… and I’m moving to Philadelphia, starting a new job, changing my web site and my email address — so needless to say, I’m a little out of sorts these days. Changing my blog software could possibly have been the last straw.
But Serendipity is quite a cool piece of software. I love their plugin manager, and because I can’t just install tons of software on this new server, I’ve actually had an excuse to try Flickr and Del.icio.us. Fun stuff!
(Now, if only I could figure out what I did wrong when I imported all the old entries so that the line breaks weren’t recognized…)
As much as I usually prefer using a program like Gallery over Flickr, mostly because I just like hosting stuff myself, I admit that I really like the social nature of this software — same with del.icio.us. It is interesting to see what friends of mine are posting on flickr… and it’s fascinating to see who else has linked to sites and what sites they link to.
Anyway… I’m bought in. And as I think about designing the new school’s technology program, I need to think about how these new programs might fit in.
