Probably a mistake for me to post at all, but I'm full of mistakes. You
know what, if someone wants to set up a spot for nerd poetry, I think
they should do so. If someone else wants to set up a different spot
using different tech, I think they should do so too.
I think it's mistaken to think anyone needs to reach consensus on what
the 'right' technology or spot for this is; and I also think it's
mistaken to think that any one platform or technology is going to be
thought to be the best by everyone involved, differnet people will
always have different opinions. I also think it's a mistake to get
offended because what someone else feels like experimenting with setting
up is not something you think is the best way to do it.
Most piece of code4lib 'social' tech, going back to this mailing list
itself, was created by someone who felt like creating it because they
thought it would be fun and rewarding, and they did so.
Now, if you want to discuss the technical pro's and con's of different
technical options, or even some technical how-to's, I think that would
be a great use of the code4lib listserv.
