Habari – a new open source blog software

Do we need another blog software? well, it depends on what you really expect from blogging tools. If you’re absolute end user who use blog software just for blogging, then you have more than enough. But if you need to do more or you want to add certain customizations or you’re a never-satisfied programmer, then […]

100 Million Web Sites was Reached by October 2006

dsc00516

Netcraft has announced that web sites passed significant milestone during last month: 100 million web sites!

100 million? That’s few. Surely there can’t be only 100 million web sites out there!

Hold on a minute, let’s take a closer look at what Netcraft considers a web site:

“There are now 100 million Web sites with domain names and content on them,” said Netcraft’s Rich Miller.

Yeah, that we all can agree. What it means that any domain name without content in it doesn’t count as a web site. That includes registrar parking pages, Google ad farms, and the like.

Also any blogger which hosted on blogspot.com or wordpress.com are counted as one, although there are actually many of them.

What interesting to me is the raising curve of new web sites during the past three years,

There were just 18,000 Web sites when Netcraft, based in Bath, England, began keeping track in August of 1995. It took until May of 2004 to reach the 50 million milestone; then only 30 more months to hit 100 million, late in the month of October 2006.

That could only mean one thing, it’s much easier to create a Web site nowadays. And blog is one of the web app which responsible for that.

It's Always About Sharing Information

One of the reasons I talked less and less about Apple over time was NOT because Apple told me to shut up. They never did, not once. But people kept taking stuff I said, and twisting it to attack Apple, or to try to spin it as if what I was saying was therefore Apple’s position.
Chuqui 3.0 : Blogging and Communication (and my final comments about Scoble. I hope)

That was the response from Chuqui, who is an ex Apple employee, regarding Scoble post. Chuq has made some good points that resonate with me why i wrote this blog,

Here’s the fun part: while Scoble talks about blogging as if there is no way to communicate without it being on a blog, he completely misses the bigger picture.

IT AIN’T ABOUT BLOGGING. It’s about communication. it’s about sharing information. It’s about solving problems.

When i was assigned to rebuild our company website, i suggested the manager to add blogs for employees in it. He simply rejected it. That’s when i decided to make this blog.

I was dissapointed for awhile until i realized that he had good reasons to do that. Not only it was a bad idea to ask employees to fill his/her blogs while tons of works must be done tomorrow. There are some other efficient ways to communicate to customer rather than pushing employees to write it down on a blog.

Furthermore, I feel much more comfortable to write anything i find interesting rather than writing something that might be interesting for company. Almost 100% of this blog has no related to any of what we’re doing, but often as not it brings some new good things for company without i even realized it.

My point is, it’s always about sharing information, and the best way of doing that is to do that for love, not for money. Although for some people like chuq, things were getting hard since people knew him too well as an Apple guy.
