Chemo Announcement


I really feel that Google has become some form of cancer to me! The bad experience I had with my phone was the proverbial "straw that broke the camel's back." So I intend to fight it.

I realize I can't go cold turkey, a perfect sign of how diverse and metastasized Google has become for me, but I can start chemo! First, I will be trying out a new way to share my ramblings, in the form of a Wiki. Assuming it will work, and I realize there will be drawbacks, such as not being able to get 'comments' and I probably won't be able to post from work, I have to try.

I do not intend to delete this blog. Though it is not something spectacular in the larger scheme of things, considering the awesomeness of the OCR Blogisphere, there are things here that I really like and have put alot of work into. I do have some things that I want to do:

[X] Start a Wiki and try it out

My Brand New Wiki

Assuming the Wiki is feasible / successful:

[   ] Find a way to allow 'comment' on the newly created Wiki
[   ] Stop using Google Mail
[   ] Stop using Google Search
[   ] Jail Break my phone and remove all Google Apps
[   ] Change or Remove all Google imbeds in other Sites I use
[   ] ...

Suggestions on alternatives? Other Google masses that I missed?

I will continue to update this post with my progress, and assuming I am successful, I will allow this site and my Google accounts to go dormant. A form of remission, if you will?

(OMG, "OMG" is flagged by my spellchecker but not "Google"!)




  1. Being able to follow new posts in a reader is also an important feature. Otherwise, people have to think about going to your blog directly rather than being notified automatically of new posts. In my opinion, wikis are better for collaboration and blogs are better for publishing ideas.

    It looks like tiddlyspot does offer RSS feeds, but you need to enable them:

    I can't figure out what the URL of the generated feeds are though...

  2. Thanks Brendan,

    I setup the RSS Feeds, but until the Wiki is stable (I quite monkeying with the layout and just "Blog" on it) it might be a bit early to subscribe...

    Really glad you pointed that out. Not sure if anyone will bother to subscribe. Would love to know if this is a "Deal Breaker" for any of the followers...

    Depending on what browser you use, determines how you subscribe:

    Goto Bookmarks -> Subscribe to This Page -> Pick Method

    Goto Tools -> Subscribe to this feed -> RSS
