A little over eleven years ago, I began a Typepad site and blog called Noebie’s Outpost, with a subtitle something along the lines of “dispatches from my corner of the electronic frontier.” I had in mind the romantic image of a listening post at a radio shack in some far flung locale. The picture at right is all that remains of that project.
I eventually moved that content to a static site built on DotMac, and shortly after that, I began blogging on the Radio Userland platform, and renamed the site The Daily Dispatch. Initially, the blog was hosted on Salon, I believe, and then at some point migrated to a self-hosted version. For awhile, and at times since, I truly did publish daily, but not so often in recent years. I moved to WordPress for new content in late 2011. It had long been my preferred platform for website development.
I’m going to make a renewed effort to publish here daily, or at least several times a week. As has been my practice almost from the beginning, the content will include a wide variety of material from a wide range of sources. I’ll continue to write the occasional essay or commentary, link to articles or news stories of interest from around the Web, and also publish some poems, quotes, memes, videos, &c.
I hope that you’ll find something of interest among the posts here, whether original or curated. As always, I welcome your comments and feedback.
