After a two year hiatus, Luis Suarez is blogging again. It was a pleasant surprise to see his voice resurface again in my feed reader in recent weeks. Just like it was two years ago when he resurfaced after a three year hiatus. Luis has been in my feed reader since when he started blogging in 2005 or thereabouts.
In his first new posting he describes the impact on himself and on our ways of working of the pandemic, as well as how he was very active in closed group spaces where people would ask him where to find more of his writings. His blog would be the logical answer, except he hadn’t written there in a good while. So back to the mothership it is. Home Sweet Home!
His last few postings are about the changing experiences one has on Twitter (I and II) and LinkedIn, and I can only echo his sentiment there (although in general I’ve always felt less enthusiastic about Twitter, seeing it as a step down both from IRC and Jaiku in terms of affordances.) Similar contemplations led me to unfollow everyone to clear out my LinkedIn timeline.
Looking forward to renewed distributed conversations on the open web with you, Luis! Blog on!
