Blogging about Clojure

From: user 9.

This post is somewhat self-promotional, but not off-topic.

Someone mentioned at our last meeting that he would like to blog about Clojure, but he's not sure what people would read. I think it was Craig who said that.

I've just put up a website called http://urlsplease...­. I imagine it as a marketplace of sorts for ideas that need elaboration: concretely, blog topics in search of authors.

It's a personal, not a corporate site, and it's very pre-release right now; I'm serious, however, about improving it and making it really useful for bloggers and other content creators. The site is not programming-specific­, but it is intended to help communities communicate and develop content. I think it could help our members and other people in the Clojure community determine hot topics and inspire blog posts, or other projects, in response. The idea is that anything identifiable and locatable by a URL can be a valid response.

Other similar projects include skribit (as seen on Yehuda Katz's blog) and Plinky (which is very light fare but still interesting). 

I'm very eager for ideas about what would be useful in a tool like this. I have an ambitious to-do list at urlsplease.com/welco­me/todo (including data analytics tools I'm writing in Clojure) but I'm always willing to hear more suggestions. 

I hope to see lots of you Monday night at hack night.

Cheers,
Michael
