improved user experience

There was a digital meeting at work today in which we talked about how to Internet better. Because, some 20-odd years later, there isn’t a newspaper in the United States of America that knows how to Internet better. If someone had figured out how to Internet better, everyone from the New York Times to the Dinwiddie Monitor would be Internetting correctly all over the place.

But that’s not the point of this entry.

During our intertubes meeting, we mentioned the need to add links to previous articles related to what we’re posting. I do this to on occasion here, but I don’t do it as much as I should, considering that, since we’re covering a decade of me now, nearly every entry is a reference to something I’ve said before.

So I pledge to you that I’ll link back more often. In fact, I went back to a recent Project 792 entry and did that.

(Going back and editing entries is something I’ve never stopped doing. I briefly mentioned here, for example, that these entries are raw pieces of work. Sometimes, when I go back into an entry, I see a horrid typo or missing information and fix it for my own edification. I know damn well no one’s reading that entry again eight years later. Well, I am, so that says something, I guess.)

So look at that: I’m doing the Internets and linking the links.

They even open in a new tab so you don’t lose your place, because I like tolerate you.

  1. Now if I can get this damn thing to stop sending me an email to let me know I linked to myself. Well, I know how, but I need to go to sleep instead of poking around in settings. I have an important meeting in less than nine hours.
