Stowe Boyd Suggests Blogging a Few Times a Day

I’m at the Cutter Summit in Cambridge, MA, where I arrived Sunday and will leave tomorrow. Social networking tools expert Stowe Boyd presented yesterday and inspired me—or maybe overwhelmed me—with the pace of movement toward Web 2.0 (Web 2.0 refers to a sea change involving the disaggregation of features and applications on the web). Reading Stowe’s blog will help you understand more about that. Stowe’s in huge demand among small companies creating simple applications that do one thing extremely well on the web. Think of all the great little one-feature applications that get invented, served up on the web, and then bought by Google or Yahoo or… That’s a piece of the Web 2.0 phenomenon.

Anyway, over cocktails last night at a Cutter Summit party at the Boston Museum of Science Stowe told me that to be relevant in the blogosphere I should be making 4 or 5 blog entries a day, not one or two a month. So I’m thinking about that. It means shorter, faster, less messing with links and images. It also means responding and reflecting many times a day on what I’m experiencing whether on RSS feeds, on the Net, or in person.

I’m confronting this idea. Stay tuned.
