More wanderings on the web this week. A while ago I signed up for Google Alerts, a good way of finding new stuff on the web. My alert for Carte de Tendre usually throws up sites on a French folk singer, but this week I found myself being notified of my own post – something I found sadly gratifying!
But the mighty Google spider also unearthed Places and Spaces, another website dedicated to all kinds of maps, including concept maps like the Carte, of which they have a very nice image. A couple of emails to the project team failed to obtain copyright clearance to use it here, but I shall persevere, and it turned out my contact also does proof-reading and copy-editing on the side. In the end we didn’t do a deal, but it was fun even not doing business with one Bryan of Indiana University.
I’ve also been keeping my eye on the Snowboooks Snowblog – for obvious reasons! – which is a lot of fun to read, and think I should start to list the best blogs for and by writers. Not that it hasn’t been done before, but we all like to reinvent the wheel to our own particular design from time to time. A project for a rainy day, I think.
