After a very long hiatus, it’s time to revive this blog.
First thing: Update WP to 3.7.1.
Second: Select a new theme that also works great on mobile. Twenty Thirteen looks great, so why not use it.
But the width of the main blog post is to narrow. Inspect element shows it is only 604 px. Hence first try: 1004px
Let’s see how this works.
Sorry for the long hiatus on this blog. So before i start blogging again (new years resolution), a short wrap-up about what i was doing in the meantime. Since August, i
- first had to prepare a couple of talks
- then went for a two week holiday (Sardegna, – very nice),
- had three weeks of
- did the preparation for next years budgeting.
- did some more talks
- an invited dinner talk at the Cassini Convention (a years end customer event )
- and a talk at the Innovation-Forum (a course in the brand news Masters study IT-Management and Consulting) at the CS department at the University of Hamburg
- and participated in the 1st Speedlab journalism (as an expert on “The future of news” :-)
All in addition to running several projects: mostly focused on digital publishing, but also on (Geo-)Metadata and other stuff.
In my spare time i continued renovating the house and started setting up my new desktop computer (The first desktop i bought in more than ten years). Actually it is no longer a desktop since i wall mounted it. For those interested: it’s quite a beast (27” iMac, Core i7, 16GB RAM, SSD + 1 TB) that should povide the processing power for the experiments i want to run this year.
So all in all it was (and still is) a quite busy time.
I hope in the meantime you enjoyed my Google shared item feed, my delicious bookmark feed , and my twitter feed
But now i’m back and intend to spent more time on blogging (and building stuff) again.
After reading this i immediately upgraded to WordPress 2.6. The upgrade itself seemingly was flawless. If you happen to find a bug, please tell me.
BTW.: I switch to doing an svn export of the WP tag from the automattic repository followed by an internal rsync -avz. This reduces the upgrade time to a couple of seconds. Due to the layout of WP (mixing original files and user adaptions in the same directory this also means that there is the chance of stale files at the rsync target directory, perhaps introducing potential security risks.
Wrt. 2.6 I’m especially interested in the revisions and the PressThis functionality as well as the image captions. Right now i’m sharing interesting blog posts in my google shared item feed. I’m definitely not going to do a press this post for every blog post i’m sharing but try to find a middle ground. In preparation for this i added a new category “Fresh from the press“.
Initially i’m going to make the PressThis posts visible at the homepage but will eventually hide them from it, similar to the DailyDeli posts. If don’t know about the DailyDeli posts. These are post that are automatically generated by delicious and cover all my daily bokmarking at delicious. BTW. my delicious account can be found http://del.icio.us/gkamp.
In other news my apologies for not posting more often recently but i had to work on renovating the house and some other stuff i’m working on. Hopefully this will change soon.
