Update: @SpineDesign is now @CreativeSpine
Update 2: RIP stickam

Blog

I've been decidedly lax in posting on my blog. I could say I haven't had time to sit down and write, but we all know that's a lame excuse. I've actually started and abandoned several posts, which you might still see up one day. While laying in my bed a moment ago, I took a personal oath to post frequently from here on. My goal is to write something every day of the week that has the letter t in it. For those of you who can't recite the days of the week with t's, that would be Tuesday, Thursday, and SaTurday. If you're checking up on me, those would be the days to see updates.

Main website https://www.joejiko.com

I have the prototype / beta layout up now. It's still a beta layout because some of the links don't work, and I've only implemented minor graphical enhancements. I'm working on an AJAX chat so the people visiting my website can communicate with me. I'm not sure if I've ever written down my intent of moving away from social websites, but that has always been my goal. I want this website to be my home base of operations. I'll be moving towards that end over the next month. I'd like to see this website fully operational by October 1st. Coincidentally, it's a Thursday, which means I'll be able to post a blog entry about my progress and comply with my blog goals above.

Twitter

I'm using twitter more and more often. If you use this service, I invite you to follow me @joejiko for personal updates and @spinedesign for web related links and my company updates. I noticed that stickam has a feature that embeds twitter chat into their webcam client. I thought it was interesting, maybe I can figure out how to include something like that in my upcoming AJAX chat or on the main site. I still haven't had time to go re-learn flash.

Personal

On a personal level, I've recently had ongoing problems with my car. It's now completely non operational, which means I need to find a new car. I hate car shopping.

That's all for now

If you have anything you'd like to see from me on this site, or just want to say "hello", feel free to fill out my contact form. I'd love to hear from you!

Social media weaning

Yes, I'll be removing my content from all "social networks" and housing it here.

I've actually been in the process of doing this for 2 months!

Today I'll be  arranging the blog layout and setting up for my own custom content publishing application to integrate.

If you're curious, email [email protected] or tweet @joejiko

ROTD: Internet relationships are not real


Me:
isn't that a contradiction?

@Jimmyfulford
well i mean, real social life in the real world

Me:
social media is part of the real world. Data and interaction by real people

not sure where the misconception comes that Internet communication is somehow less than other methods

@Jimmyfulford
i understand about all that smart fact you told me , i just, dont agree with you,even when it's a fact :)

Me:
well, that's absurd..
it's also ironic that your opinion is not real. lol

@Jimmyfulford
u know what absurd is?when ppl have 5000friends on FB,but none in real life
social media is part of the real world?yea,but actually it's not real,it's called 'hyperreality',u might want to read it first

Me:
hyper is a prefix. Still reality is the root. .
Internet social connections are real. You could argue that Internet is more limited than in person. . But both equally real

@Jimmyfulford
lmao what an excuse, u smart,but not that smart. and you clearly need to read some Baudrillard
both equally real? thats the most stupid thing i've heard lmao
not about to brag but, believe me i know more than you know. n im not in the mood to argue,so, cheers

Me:
that's extremely arrogant of you. Good luck
