Plus ça change, Part 1 & 2

by on Jan.18, 2012, under Announcements

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose

So as I’ve been mentioning I’ve been planning some changes for A Singularity. I’ve actually enacted one already.

Change #1: What’s in a name?

Last year I changed the name from The Singularity Blog to A Singularity, in order to better express what one may find on this website. This website serves two primary purposes:

  1. To provide people with interesting content to read, watch, listen to, or look at, that I’ve found from across the internet.
  2. To provide a platform for the content I myself create and provide an easy place for someone looking for that content to find it.

And for the most part I think I’m succeeding at those goals and I think the name change better helps people understand that this is not always a blog about the technological singularity or a gravitational singularities, but is, instead a website that behaves like a singularity or is, in fact, singular, odd, or peculiar, as my tastes often are according to some. For a more in-depth write-up about the name change, check out the post I made regarding it.

Change #2: Growing Pains

That least us to right now, our second change, which is actually a series of changes. Up until this point A Singularity has been somewhat interwoven with my identity as Nojh. This was primarily to help my most obvious audience, people who know me from both on and off the internet, gain easier access to the site. Now, however, is the time where I need my own space back. Which means A Singularity is getting its own Twitter, Facebook, and Live Journal accounts:

Twitter: A Singularity Net

Facebook: A Singularity Net

LiveJournal: A Singularity Net

Additionally the website has always had a Tumblr crossposter that I will go ahead and share just so it doesn’t feel left out.

Tumblr: A Singularity

So there you have it! Not that this will be the only change in store! A site re-design is in the works and a content shakeup is being planned as I type. Nothing too drastic but it will help organize things better I think. So please, go subscribe or like or friend the above social networks. If you’re not into that the standard RSS feed is still available here.

Felicia Day’s RSS Rant

by on Nov.03, 2011, under Articles, Computers, Internet, Technology

Felicia Day decided to rant on her blog the other day about how RSS seems to be disappearing from the internet.

RSS Rant [Feliciaday.com]

I rely on RSS for almost all my major internet tracking and reading. While I re-post entries of this blog to Twitter, Facebook, and tumblr, I provide that mostly for a service to those who don’t. That being said, websites should try to accommodate multiple ways of viewing their content, which includes direct subscription via RSS. RSS is a generic system that allows customization on both the website’s and content reader’s end that no other social media type service is ever likely to provide.
