"A list of weblogs authored by CEOs. Actually, this might be
a misnomer. It's a list of weblogs authored by people who are in a
leadership position in various organizations (corporations, non-profit,
I was searching for something like this the other day...
[Later:] Works fine. Except that, I'll need to re-jig the HTML to fit in with a window of 400 x 500 pixels. And, one can only 'blog-this' to one site. I was hoping that I could store several sites. As I said, I've perhaps 10 different 'Manila Express' bookmarklets amongst my bookmarks here. Sure, I could use Radio and xManilaBloggerBridge and I do sometimes, but I've not always got Radio running. And I use several machines, far easier to just drag a bookmarklet to the toolbar—even in internet cafés, or more usually, in client demos. "Simply: login, drag bookmarklet to here, highlight some text, and Bob's your uncle—a press clipping mechanism." Says Demo Mode Steve.
To each Manila news page on my servers, I've added some explanatory text and the bookmarklets themselves for both Mozila and MSIE ready to be dragged as is.
Still, will be a 'nice-to-have' addition to the many ways I post news items to the blogs I manage.
Mail-to-weblog from email app, mobile phones, right clicking in Radio. Flip and open front page from within Radio (I used to do this to four Manila sites with one click). Bookmarklets. xManilaBloggerBridge. Editors only: News ==> "Create a News Item." Oh, and telepathy as I lie in bed falling to sleep, though this method invariably fails thus far.
Clipping from a long report about a debate about blogging and knowledge management "...the idea of how blogs can be used to extend the socialisation
framework that we get when smart people gather around the cube, board
table or in the lunchroom. In those situations, people are sharing and
learning from one another, but it happens only within a small group of
people who happen to be near each other. With blogs (and admittedly
other social software) people can extend that reach out to larger and
larger groups of people."
In other words blogging makes one think. It helps others, and others help you. This has been written about so many different ways, I like to note those I've not heard before, ways that are resonant for me.
Some little JS widgets. My fav is this nice little show hide script. I've been using activeRenderer for this, which is very over-the-top compared to this little JS widget. (aR 2.4 came out yesterday. I'll test drive it in a few weeks. I use 1.4, so this should be quite a big jump for me.)
I already use Paul Sowden's CSS switcher which remembers the user's preference (for 365 days) with a cookie. I may think about that form checker too, better than awaiting the server to tell one, one's missed something out. Drop down navs? Nah! Don't like links hidden away like that, though I do like the design in the Sucker Fish's demo.
