I’ve Started Work on the NEW + IMPROVED Rational Media Website :D

I wrote what will be my first post for my NEW + IMPROVED “rational media” site — WooHoo!! 😀

I considered publishing it right away, but I actually want to use it as a reminder that I want / need to first complete the static publishing app I’ve been mulling over.

I have the basic ideas pretty much all set, now I have to roll up my sleaves and actually JUST DO IT! 😯

There are many reasons why I have not been able to do it over the past several months, but it looks like there will soon be LOTS of OPPORTUNITY showing up on the horizon.

So please: STAY TUNED 😉

News about Life Online, Fun Stuff + Doing the Write Thing

OMG! I haven’t written ANYTHING here in almost a year!!! 😯
The feed I was writing about last August worked OK (off and on, while I was kind of jiggling the wires), but I have recently been moving towards a BRAND NEW publishing system (I am currently putting finishing touches on a prototype that I hope to be able to share in a couple days).
It will still be very much WP-based, because WP has so many bells and whistles I really like. But I am also working on extending the search capabilities + also making many websites much more responsive and capable of working with very limited resources (when you have hundreds / thousands of sites, this can become a very important issue 😉 ).
Rather than rambling on endlessly + pie-in-the-sky philosophically now, I want to much more draw attention to Sonia, who I just discovered a couple days ago (check out her WP blog @doingthewritething / http://doingthewritething.wordpress.com — she writes very well and has quick wits, so her short stories and flash fiction will probably NOT drone on endlessly about domain names like some other people I know 🙂 ).

The Free Magazines links in…

The Free Magazines links in the right sidebar are an example of the way I hope some of the planned magazine webites are supposed to work. This is still in a “test” stage. 🙂

Values for zines / sites to be included here

Here are some core values I am considering as cornerstones of the kinds of sites I would like to include here:

  1. All authors authenticated
  2. All posts approved by editorial staff
  3. High priority on balanced free speech + insightful commentary
  4. Respect for + tolerance of opposing viewpoints

I am planning a site…

I am planning a site with “local news” information. For this, I want to divide the Earth into regions based on both North / South and also time zones.

Here’s what I have so far:

  • North America
  • South America
  • Europe
  • Africa
  • Asia
  • Pacific

Any thoughts / ideas? Which group would you assign Japan to? Or what about “Middle East” countries?


Well, hi there! 😀

I hope you enjoy this place. 🙂
