Knowledge Sharing

Thursday, April 24th, 2003 · No Comments

One of the cool benefits of blogging is sharing knowledge with other bloggers. Of course, there are community blogs like LazyWeb and Metafilter, wherein the community creates the content. On the other hand, bloggers often share knowledge with their own readers and directly with one another via comments and individual posts.

I’ve had two recent experiences with this: First, when I was curious about how Erik Barzeski displayed the random quotes in his sidebar (since I do the same thing and wanted to see how others do it); second, when Martin Grider wanted to know how I created my Master Comments template (so I told him — and shared the knowledge with anyone else who may stumble this way). In the latter case, Martin also put forth some cool suggestions for sorting the list by entry or commenter. Future blog feature, perhaps.

Knowledge is power, after all. And, from my quotes page:

“Where there is much desire to learn, there of necessity will be much arguing, much writing, many opinions; for opinion in good men is but knowledge in the making.”
– John Milton
