For those who are interested: the advent of Google+ has inspired me to fire up The Art of Conversation again. I encourage y'all to come and chat...

Lots of people gave me the heads-up about Google Wave while I was at Pennsic, but I wasn't going to deal with it then. But now that I'm beginning to settle back in, I've posted some preliminary thoughts on where Google has messed up with Wave, and where it might go next. See my post on The Art of Conversation if you're interested...

For those who are interested in what I have to say: I've recently been ramping up my professional blog, The Art of Conversation. It had been sliding into inactivity, mostly because I'd been over-thinking and over-structuring it -- I was thinking so hard about it as a *series* that I was intimidating myself into saying relatively little at all.

So I've switched tacks. I'm now posting most of my thoughts on the subjects covered by it on there. Since the nominal topic is "Purposeful Online Conversation in Communities", and I'm posting about *all* of those topics there, it's pretty broad -- it includes my thoughts on social networking, community, online identity, conversation systems, technology, sociology, and more. The personal stuff is going to remain here on LJ, but most of what I have to say on the professional level is there.

I encourage y'all to come join in -- besides wanting readers (every blogger wants to be heard, after all), I actively encourage comments and conversation in there. They're fascinating topics that are changing and evolving every week, and there is a ton to talk about. If you want to follow it via LiveJournal, it is syndicated as [livejournal.com profile] artofconv. (And if you want to follow the whole conversation, you can also pick up [livejournal.com profile] artofconvcmnt, which is the feed of comments as they get posted. Unsurprisingly, most of the comments are from people familiar from here, especially [livejournal.com profile] laurion, [livejournal.com profile] dsrtao, [livejournal.com profile] doubleplus and [livejournal.com profile] metahacker.)

Since I just updated, an occasional reminder: besides my LJ, I have a "professional blog", The Art of Conversation, which is specifically on the subject of productive conversation in online communities. I don't update it nearly often enough, but just posted (on the subject of Filtering and how it necessary it is becoming), so if you're interested in that area, I encourage you to join in. (And comment! I always prefer Art of Conv to be a conversation itself, so comments are more than welcome...)

At [livejournal.com profile] metahacker's suggestion, I've added a second feed for the Art of Conversation blog, for the comments -- since I'm trying to run this *as* an ongoing conversation, the comments are often as interesting as the top post. (Or moreso.)

So if you're interested in talking about online conversation and community, I recommend adding the [livejournal.com profile] artofconvcmnt feed, as well as the original [livejournal.com profile] artofconv. The latter is the posts, the former is the comments. This way, you can follow the full discussion from LJ. (In theory, anyway. LJ hasn't begun populating it yet, but I expect stuff to start showing up sometime in the next day...)

Now, turning away from politics: I've neglected my professional blog, The Art of Conversation, for months now, while I got the CommYou alpha put together. Now that things are settling down into a new phase, I'm getting that going again. I've just posted my first entry in ages, on Zuckerberg's Law. Come on over, and join the conversation!

After talking about it for several weeks, I've finally gone and created the new blog: The Art of Conversation. The first post there describes in some detail what it's going to be about, so I won't echo it all here -- suffice it to say, the official focus is Purposeful Online Conversation in Communities.

I know that a bunch of folks here are interested in the subject, so I'll gently push you all over to it: please come, read, comment, and generally join in -- it'll be a lot more fun if I have some friends along for the ride. I've syndicated it in LJ as [livejournal.com profile] artofconv (hopefully LJ will eventually update that); the feed is http://artofconv.wordpress.com/feed if you want to follow it in some other blog reader.

Please don't be shy if you'd like to post something there. While I'll be the principal author, and will be trying to keep it professional and on-topic, I actually think it will be a lot more fun if other people are offering their insights as well. The blog is going to be *about* conversation, but I'd like it to also *be* a conversation itself, among people who are interested in the topic.

So please join in, and tell anyone who you think would be interested in it...
