Presently this blog and site (that is, calebstanford.com) are “under construction”. What I mean by that is that I’m thinking about the following questions:
What is the best way to organize personal thoughts, content, and projects online?
Blogs are limited in scope because they are sorted chronologically. Most pages reflect thoughts at a particular time and may not stay relevant. Pages are not sorted into a natural hierarchy (by topic?), which limits their utility, and tags are only a limited way to get around this.
How can I effectively separate my UPenn page from this one, without overlap?
I had intended keep my UPenn page minimal. Now, I think it should contain more. For now, I am copying some pages from here to there, but they are still present over here…
What do I want out of my personal website?
I’ve used this as a place to publish and organize my thoughts. But I also like getting comments on my thoughts, and starting online discussions. That’s never going to happen here. I think personal websites may be better suited for sharing projects, downloadable materials, and notes — not for open dialog.
