    Was ist die beste Lösung um einen Blog zu erstellen und verwalten?

    ...das ist insofern sehr interessant für mich, weil ich mich ja noch nicht endgültig für ein bestimmtes System entschieden habe. WordPress war je nur eines von denen, die ich mir angesehen habe und die einen ganz vernünftigen Eindruck machten. Aber eins verstehe ich nicht: ist doch keine Software, sondern ein Dienst. Vorteil: Man braucht sich selber nicht um die technische Infrastruktur zu kümmern, Nachteil: Man ist in den Konfigurationsmöglichkeiten begrenzt. Aber ist doch deine eigene Web Site, wo du eigene Software installiert hast oder? Was waren denn deiner Meinung nach die Vor- und Nachteile von WordPress?

    ...genau das dachte ich auch über und in der Tat ist es ein Dienst. Du kannst jedoch, wie bei WordPress alles in Deinem Blog individualisieren und beliebig erweitern. Bei gibts es einen Haken und einen Nachteil: Der Haken: Um Deine von Blogger erzeugte Seite wirklich individuell und ohne unerwünschte Topbar anzeigen zu lassen muss sie auf Deinem Webpace via FTP veröffentlicht werden (eigentlich ist das ja gar kein Haken, weil ich ja genau das wollte - für mich also ein Feature.) Nachteil: Den einzigsten wirklichen Nachteil bei sehe ich in der Tatsache begründet, dass es ein Dienst ist. Der Dienst könnte ja eingestellt werden, oder sich zum schlechteren verändern. Man hat halt nicht die Scripts für die Veröffentlichung bei sich auf dem Computer (bzw. auf seiner Website). Das wird jedoch dadurch kompensiert das es zahlreiche API's gibt und wenn es wirklich mal zum Umzug kommen sollte: Sämtliche, der neuen Blogger Services, (Hoster, oder Script) importieren mittlerweile Blogger blogs und damit fühle ich mich ziemlich sicher. Für spricht für mich die einfache und übersichtliche Bedienung und nach Vertigstellung des Blogs die unheimliche leichtigkeit der Veröffentlichung von Posts (Du schickst Dir selber auf Deiner blogger Email den Post und voila, oder Du benutzt eines der Firefox Plugins [die gibts von "simpoel" bis "sehr ausgereift" und und ... dauert wirklich weit unter eine Minute interessante Bereiche einer Website (oder was auch immer) auf dem Blog zu veröffentlichen.

    Der Vorteil von Wordpress ist ganz klar das man das Script total selber kontrolliert. Ok das glaubt man (eigentlich mischt sich auch hier die Seite ein, aber die Seite heisst nunmal .org, was ja Sympatisch ist. Ich sehe 2 Nachteile: Die Scripts sind noch nicht so toll ausgereift, vielleicht wäre hier das Scripting der Wahl (es ist jedoch noch in einem frühen Beta Stadium und ich wollte jetzt etwas haben. Die Möglichkeiten seine Posts zu veröffentlichen sind nicht so vielfältig, aber das kann natürlich ziemlich egal sein, weil man auch hier alles via Email veröffentlichen kann.

    Mein Fazit: Eigentlich ist es Geschmacks- und Glaubenssache welche Lösung man nimmt. Wenn man sich mal im Internet umschaut klaffen die Meinungen total auseinander und ich sehe das wirklich zum Grossteil als Glaubens- und Geschmacks-sache. Mein Favorit ist (Hosting), auf den Plätzen folgt (Script, wenn es mal fertig ist, vielleicht die erste Wahl), Wordpress (Script - wäre zur zeit die erste Wahl.)

    Ich werde diese Mail mal auf stellen es könnte ja andere interessieren...

    Flash is Dead? script.aculo

    I was browsing some Ajax libraries the other day, and found one that’s pretty cool. You can check out what it does at As I was looking at their demo page, I got to thinking about how many times I would do something in flash just because I would want a similar effect. Not only is it not plugin based anymore, but the file size is extremely lower too. There are hundreds, maybe even thousands of things that still would not compare to what Flash has to offer, but it just makes you wonder… will we need Flash in a few years? Another thing that comes to mind is SVG, which stands for scalable vector graphics. With SVG enabled browsers, we can call vector graphics on-the-fly and animate them without any type of Flash. Don’t get me wrong, I think Flash is a great software package. But if there’s something better, why not?

    Welcome to!

    The Web is changing. The 30-year-old terminal-like technology it was originally is gradually giving way to new ways of doing things. The power of AJAX allows for rich user interaction without the trouble that has bugged traditional web applications. Building upon the wonderful Prototype JavaScript library, provides you with some great additional ingredients to mix in.

    Try out these live AJAX powered demos:
    autocompletion live demo shopping cart live demo
    Check out the list of available demos.

    Visual effects

    Web applications don't have to stay behind the current graphical trends in ultra-rich-desktop-applications. And they don't have to resort to fancy plug-ins that break usability and accessibility. Browsers and standards have reached a stage where advanced animations are finally possible to do with JavaScript.

    Visit the visual effects page to learn more. Here's a quick demo to get you started (Hint: try fewer than 3 characters on the search).


    Want some more user interaction than the same old INPUT elements and drop-downs? How about drag-and-drop with built-in support for sortable lists, floats and AJAX serializing? Go to the drag-and-drop page for complete coverage. The scripts you'll find here all make use of the fully object-oriented Prototype JavaScript library, which comes (like!) with the Ruby on Rails web application development framework. (But you can use Prototype and with any web development tools, (even with static HTML pages!)

    Quick Polls with dPolls

    I came across Israel-based dPolls today. It’s a very quick and easy way to create a well designed, Ajax-rich interactive poll that can be integrated directly into a website.

    The service is free. After a quick registration you can create public or private polls, and there is also an option to get the html and place the poll directly on a site. I’ve done this, and have pasted a quick poll below (Note: I am seeing performance issues already - this may get worse before it gets better). After voting, the current results appear within the poll box. Nice tool.

    The only problems I encountered: you cannot edit a poll once its been created, so you have to simply start over. Also, the image upload feature doesn’t seem to work.

    I believe there are other services that do this as well. Please let me know.

    Woman marries dolphin

    Sharon Tendler married her boyfriend in a private ceremony in Eilat, Israel. They've been in a relationship for 15 years. Sharon is a human. Her boyfriend, named Cindy, is a dolphin. From the Associated Press:

    'It's not a perverted thing. I do love this dolphin. He's the love of my life,' she said Saturday, upon her return to London.

    When asked in the past if she had a boyfriend, she would always reply, 'No. I'm going to end up with Cindy.' On Wednesday, she made it official, sort of. While she acknowledged the 'wedding' had no legal bearing she did say it reflected her deep feelings toward the bottlenosed, 35-year-old object of her affection.

    'It's not a bad thing. It just something that we did because I love him, but not in the way that you love a man. It's just a pure love that I have for this animal,' she said."

    phil ringnalda » Updated right-click BlogThis for Firefox (and Mozilla): "Updated right-click BlogThis for Firefox (and Mozilla)

    A mere three months over a year after the first version, here’s version 0.2 of a Firefox and Mozilla extension to add a right-click Blogger BlogThis menu item.

    Changes since version 0.1: less suckage, still works. For no good reason, I was using the function that gets selected text for the builtin “Search web for …”, which only gives you a few hundred characters. Now, you get 2K characters, spread over the title, URL, and the selected text. The BlogThis in the Google toolbar for IE gives you 178 characters less, which worries me more thinking about how they chose that number than that something will go wrong because we use those extra 178 characters.

    Oh, and now in Firefox it will appear in the Extension Manager, with an awful-looking icon. If the sight of it annoys you too much, you’ll find it quite easy to track down my email address to send me a better pair (32×32 and 100×100, thank you very much).

    Huge thanks to the aptly titled How to write Firefox extensions for the handy build script, and for collecting everything you need to get started (or re-started) doing extensions in one easy-to-steal package."

    Web 2.0 definition (from wikipedia)

    The term "Web 2.0" refers to what some people see as a second phase of development of the World Wide Web, including its architecture and its applications. As used by its proponents, the phrase allegedly refers to one or more of the following: * a transition of websites from isolated information silos to sources of content and functionality, thus becoming a computing platform serving web applications to end users * a social phenomenon referring to an approach to creating and distributing Web content itself, characterised by open communication, decentralization of authority, freedom to share and re-use, and "the market as a conversation" * a more organized and categorized content, with a far more developed deeplinking web architecture. * a shift in economic value of the web, up past a trillion dollars surpassing that of the dot com boom of the late 1990s.However, a consensus upon its exact meaning has not yet been reached.Many recently developed concepts and technologies are seen as contributing to Web 2.0, including weblogs, linklogs, podcasts, RSS feeds and other forms of many to many publishing; social software, web APIs, web standards, online web services, Ajax, and others.Web 2.0 allegedly differs from early web development (retroactively labeled Web 1.0) as it is a move away from static websites, email, using search engines and surfing from one website to the next. Others are more skeptical that such basic concepts can be superseded in any real way by those listed above
