I have completed general design and functionality specifications for how I’d like the Wiki portions of my site and the dynamic placement (deep categories) aspect of my site to work.
I’ll use a later post to parse the Wiki specs against available open source packages to pick a final candidate.
In addition, I have also been assembling much prior content and deciding how much of it, if any, I will convert and use to "prime the pump" for the initial release of AI3.
Author’s Note: I actually decided to commit to a blog on April 27, 2005, and began recording soon thereafter my steps in doing so. Because of work demands and other delays, the actual site was not released until July 18, 2005. To give my ‘Prepare to Blog …’ postings a more contemporaneous feel, I arbitrarily changed posting dates on this series one month forward, which means some aspects of the actual blog were better developed than some of these earlier posts indicate. However, the sequence and the content remain unchanged. A re-factored complete guide will be posted at the conclusion of the ‘Prepare to Blog …’ series, targeted for release about August 18, 2005. mkb
