I continue to expand the code for indeepthought and have implemented more of wiki markup. If your curious about wiki markup you can see two competing standards here and here. Which one am I using? Neither really, there are parts of both I don't like and since neither is an excepted standard by the community of wiki I am basically using my own derived form based off wikipedia itself.

The article code is done so now I can start to go through all the articles and convert them to the new format with tags. I've already redone the projects and about pages. As you can see to the right are the Blog Tags and Archives which is pretty easy to understand I think. It just shows you a slightly filtered list of tags, those with more than one post, for my blog posts. You can see more tags at the bottom of the Blog Tags which shows you a cloud view of all the tags here. The tag cloud is split into two for blog posts and articles.

Which brings me to the menu above. The menu above is all about the articles. I have limited the article tags to mainly 7 tags. The sparce, tags, and contact menu items are not tags. Sparce is a link to the sister project for bookmarks organized by tags like del.icio.us and click throughs. The tags link is the same as the more tags link under Blog Tags. I might just remove this if it makes sense to keep the two tag clouds together on the same page. Contacts is just a mouseover to display my email address in the second level menu. The others are tags and if you click on them will show you a list of articles that I have filed under that tag. If you mouse over them you might see in the second level menu up to 4 or 5 of the most recent articles.

Now here is where the wiki part comes in. Articles are given a unique name which allow me to interlink articles together or link to articles in my blog posts by just calling the article by name, wiki style. Hopefully this will prevent articles getting lost under newer ones. We will see how this works. If I run into the problem of needing more article tags I might have to come up with a different way of navigating through the blog and article tags. I'm trying to make it easy and non-convoluted while maintaining a single web site.

People can of course comment directly on the article page just like the blog posts. The articles themselves use some wiki markup to make it easier to write them some of that will eventually make its way into the blog code. Eventually I hope to create a completely modular site run by a modified wiki markup language and tags.

What is in deep thought?
  • The place where the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything is answered.
'''What's the answer?'''
  • Among other things, 42.
'''Then what's the question?'''
  • We don't exactly know but it's been hinted that part of the question is: What do you get when you multiply six by nine?
'''Doesn't six times nine equal 54?'''
  • We did say it was only part of the question.
'''Shouldn't the correct question be: What do you get when you multiply six by seven?'''
  • We don't think that's a very good question.
'''Doesn't it clearly fit the answer 42?'''
  • 42 is only part of the answer so we think six times nine is a perfectly good part of the question of life, the universe, and everything.
'''Ok... but who's we?'''
  • Um just me and my web site.
Your weird.
  • Hey this is a PAQ, let's keep it to questions and answers.
'''What's a PAQ?'''
  • Potentially Asked Question.
Why a PAQ and not a FAQ?
  • Well, no one seemes to be actualy asking us these questions but we are pretty sure they want to.
'''What can I do if I don't like this site or for some reason am offended by it?'''
  • Leave or get bent.
Ok... uh, so who are you?
  • I'm just this guy, you know? I have alot of interests. It's a bit chaotic, but that's what this place is about.

Making some good progress in the backend here, all the posts now are run through the database. I am working on tags at the moment. Next will be working out the article system.

Yes, I've finally bought the domain indeepthought.org. I bought the domain through goDaddy.com and am being hosted by some friends over at henge.org. They've got cold fusion set up for me so stay tuned as I write the code that will replace this site.

There's a phenomenon going on out there in radio land and most of it is taking place over the internet. A few days ago Apple released iTunes 4.9 with support for Podcasting. With the likes of Adam Curry, Chris Pirillo, Dave Winer, and Leo Laporte all podcasting it seems right under out feet. Well here it is, let's see where it takes us.

For the web site I updated the books section again making the entire list run through javascript hopefully making it much easier for me to update as well as faster to load.

If anyone has read The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy they will understand. Anyway, I've made various little changes and whatnots to some content.
