The first Death Star was flawed … wait on … The first draft of this article/post was flawed. That is … i wrote to much before saving, and then lost it all.
What this did was flick a little switch in my brain as to the auto-saving of WordPress documents … I haven’t yet looked into the plugins dbs, but if something doesn’t exist, then I wonder how hard it will be to create it.
Anway … on with becoming an Investigatory Journalist.
In an effort to better understand what is happening in the world of Development, I took out my sleuthing suede hat, pipe, magnifying glass, and got to work. It was rough at the beginning, fighting villian’s of the calibre of Professor Moriaty … wait on.
All dream-sequences aside, I began my search with to of the greatest tools at our disposal today. Google, and Technorati.
These lists may alter from time of publication to time of reading. Hopefully not by much.
What follows is a shocking tale of greed, murder, mystery, … heh heh. Can’t you tell I’m a frustrated story-teller.
Read on to see what I discovered. Part 2 (the Technorati bits) is forthcoming.

Man alive! I’ve never really thought about this particular point, and so, like the oft-mentioned lightbulb … it really clicked with me.
Dion Hinchcliffe writes about the Web 2.0 Mashup Ecosystem.
What really hit me square in the forehead was his looking at the web like a big giant OS. Awesome. It’s really mind-blowing for a yokel like myself. I mean, it’s pretty simple when it becomes clear. It’s not restricted to a single computer, hardware, software … it’s far greater than it’s parts.
Next I want to hear that the web has started to create it’s own little spaces in the fabric of reality. I mean … that’s the way my mind goes after reading this article. One more step along the path towards what writers dreamed of years ago.
Okay … I’ve got this awesome post, spend over two hours tonight on it … and then BAM … moved my hand slightly, and pressed the BACK button on my 5-button mouse.
There isn’t a power in the world that can bring those hundreds of words back to me. Except they will come back, not now, but later. Just … it’s painful to lose something you thought was good writing. Or at least it was a lot of writing. Heh heh.
It’s been posted a few days, but go and check out Tad’s Shaving Article. It made me laugh out loud. Mostly I guess because of the Late Show (the aussie one), where Tony Martin (and Mick Malloy?) go through this new super, many bladed shaver. Awesome stuff. And here I find Tad showing me a shaver with six blades (1 hidden). Man alive!
Also, if anyone doesn’t check out Tadspot, you should. The site is getting very popular now, front-page in Digg, and other bookmarking sites. Got a range of different articles/posts, like the shaving one :), but also TV-casts, books, and some good ideas about where Internet stuff is heading.
