Moving to new digs

Posted by davidvc on June 27, 2007 at 1:19 AM PDT

I've decided to move my blog to a new location. You can now find me at http://davidvancouvering.blogspot.com.

Why am I making the move? Well, this was a hard decision. I really like the java.net community, and I like how the editor takes care to call out cool and interesting stuff.

But the problem is, sometimes I want to talk about more than Java, and more than my work. And java.net really wants and needs to stay focused on Java technology and things that impact Java (like Ruby). If my blog waxes poetic about politics or the cutest thing my kid did the other day, it tends to diffuse the focus of this site. People come here for serious Java stuff.

I also am a little constrained by the fairly rigid walls of java.net as a blogging platform. Personally, I'm tired of typing in raw HTML. I want to have a few widgets, not many, on my page. I want Google Reader to show the whole post, not just the blurb. Things like that.

If you don't want to see cute pictures from time to time, or hear about my opinions on education, and you can http://davidvancouvering.blogspot.com/search/label/technology">subscribe just to the "technology" label. There's also a quicklink label, for useful delicious links that I have auto-posted to my blog.

So, see you at my new digs!

P.S. Yes those are probably the dullest photos on my "recent Flickr Photos" widget. But I promise they'll change from time to time :) (Most of you will probably be reading my through an aggregator anyway and won't even see my fun widgets. Too bad...)
