Hello Squarespace

I should have done this ages ago.My only excuse is that I wanted to know the ins-and-outs of WordPress, so I used a self-hosted WordPress installation for my personal blog. 99% of the activity on that blog was behind the scenes: constantly updating WordPress to fix security holes and bugs. I have wearied of the …

Buzz Kill

Something happened tonight that made me question everything I've done with social media since I first joined Twitter in late 2006. You know me - I'm a complete web whore. I sign up for every site, try every web app, use every service I can find. It's my job, but I also love doing it. …

Boo Ya

I'm posting little audio blog bits from my Asia trip via a new service called AudioBoo. Chris Marquardt recommended it - he's using it for a daily photo tip podcast called "Daily Photo Tips with Chris." - and Bobby Llew and Stephen Fry are also doing some cool stuff with it. AudioBoo makes it easy …

Happy Birthday To Me

Today the Leoville.com blog turns seven. Over the years it's been running on Blogger, GreyMatter, Movable Type, Expression Engine, Vox, and now, I'm very happy to say, WordPress. It's been so much fun, and when I look back at the old posts I realize what a long, strange decade it's been! There will be no …

Site Redesign

Yep, something does look a little different around here. I've moved Leoville.com to WordPress (it was PMWiki) and integrated it with my blog (which I moved to WordPress a few months ago). This new template is Brian Gardner's Revolution and it makes magazine-style pages like this possible, making WordPress suitable for web sites as well …

Caution: Man Working

It's been a crazy couple of weeks, and it's getting crazier. I just got back from New Haven where I was serving on a Yale University advisory committee working on a strategy for online distribution. This week Yale announced that it's putting seven courses online complete with lectures (video and audio), transcripts, problem sets, and …

Blogworld Recap

I'm back from Las Vegas toting the usual sore throat from the dry air and ciggy smoke, and a Best Podcast award for TWiT from the Weblog Awards. Thanks for all your votes! (And thanks to Tris Hussey for taking all the pictures here.) Despite my fears the speech went well. For some reason this …

2007 Weblog Awards

I'm not usually one to lobby for votes, but I would appreciate your vote for TWiT as best podcast in the Weblog awards. You can vote once per day through November 8. The award will be handed out at BlogWorld Expo at the end of the week. While you're there you might want to vote …

A Little Help Here

I love the "This Day In Leoville History" plug-in. On a blog like this with nearly seven years worth of posts it's fun to go back in time. But you've probably noticed that a number of the entries are 404: file not found. They're there, it's just that they have punctuation in the title. For …
