A Hundred Topics I Won't Write About

Chris Brogran posted a list of a hundred blog topics he hoped someone would write about. I was planning on covering all his topics with one blog each, for fun, but then I read through the topics and realized that he and I must be very different people. Very few of the mentioned topics are topics that I am either knowledgeable of or interested in writing about. So instead of writing a blog for each topic, I'll write a line about why I won't write more lines about each of the topics. Prepare for a long post anyway. Here we go...

1 How I Use Facebook

To keep track of friends. Also very unwillingly. I feel it undermines the social values of real life communication and friendship. It also takes up way too much time.

2 Ways I Embrace My Audience

I don't. In writing these blogs I'm probably about as sociable as a wall. I just like writing, if people like reading what I write, then all is good. If they don't, shame. Should I embrace my audience? *

3 Should My Town Use Social Media?

No, and I hope they won't.

4 A Community I Love


5 Technology That Empowers Me

My computer. The one that is a part of me. I'm speaking about my brain, one of the most sophisticated mechanisms in this world that we have yet to fully understand or replicate.

6 How Flickr Did it Right

I don't use Flickr. So apparently they did it wrong.

7 How Best to Comment on a Corporate Blog

I don't comment on corporate blogs. Why? Because they are impersonal. I don't agree with their motives; I don't care to socialize in the benefit of their services/products. If I really enjoy their service or product that's a whole different thing though, but traditional corporations don't tend to leave a good impression with me.

8 Ways to Save a Bad Time at a Conference

If all else fails, you can always leave.

9 How I Find Blogging Ideas

Either I just write, or I stumble upon something I want to write about, or I think about what I write about and then I write about it. Piece of cake.

10 Somebody Has to Say It

We humans are not a superior race. We are greedy, destructive, sinister and flawed.

11 My Children Will Do it Differently

They shouldn't. I really hope they don't.

19 My Community and How You Can Engage It

    51.) it's all about balance: too chaotic = unintelligible. too little chaos = boring

    52.) good chance he knows more about it than I do

    53.) it's looking like I finally am going to. Haven't worked in a couple months and I'm going to be out until atleast September due to an upcoming surgery...

    54.) when you are making a blog that contains 100 mundane subjects to blog about...even worse, when you blog about that blog

    55.) why would you need to hack? you know your password don't you?

    56.) lmao

    57.) not a bad question...I, however, cannot think of any.

    66.) this guy makes BuzzFeed seem like Nobel Prize nominees

    67.) not like this guy needs them. I hope he never blogs again

    68.) hopefully he downloads a tool that is actually a virus and he's never able to blog again

    69.) the downsides to social media! Like and click or Facebook page for more

    70.) well, HTML isn't permissible in comments...

    71.) with caution, sober, 5-10 miles under the speed limit, with gratuitous use of turn signals, and smooth acceleration/deacceleration to save gas

    97.) almost there...

    98.) lol

    99.) i don't think you necessarily need a good computer to handle a good microphone...just a good computer to process software and high quality settings...

    100.) nothing in this world is free. that's against the law of physics.

  2. Cyber
    Monday May/22/2017

    1.) I guess it is now huh. The world wasn't that far gone when I wrote this post. Also a requirement for work now...

    2.) That is true.

    3.) Actually a pretty interesting Twitter hmm... not my town though! My hometown's oldskool. Hardcore. Not even ADSL.

    4.) Write, yeah, it's already all written. :)

    5.) I'm ironically really pro-brain/anti-computer, thus there was this.

    6.) Hmm... yeah... dual meaning: so as to be especially difficult to understand?

    7.) If only it was so! Actually found one I really do like since I wrote this:

    8.) True that. Better a Conference pear than a conference peer...

    9.) Yet he makes it seem like a piece of cake!

    10.) Right, my bad. Something about the human race... for extinction!

    11.) Don't give up man!!!

    12.) Too bad indeed. :/

    13.) Even better!

    14.) Ditto.

    15.) If only ???!

    16.) That doesn't sound inspiring.

    17.) OCD? I seem to have a knack for perpetual tasks that serve no purpose. Seems you managed it too though! :P

    18.) *nod*

    19.) Like a slave.

    20.) Like MySpace but even less known + obsolete.

    21.) Not really though, it all depends on how it's embedded. If it's embedded in a responsive layout element you can scale Flash too, and it'll scale proportionately. May differ with certain mobile browsers, maybe, I don't know how they work...

    22.) Good thing you're not an advertiser today then. Tomorrow?

    23.) I'd say fortunate. XD

    24.) :)

    25.) Augmented reality documents on document documentation? Yeah I don't know what I'm right in writing.

    26.) Sharks. Oh hey a niche is also 'a shallow recess'. *paradox*

    27.) All stereotypes have some underlying truths they do!

    28.) This site actually does NOT meet the Online Privacy Protection Act guideline (as specified on the Privacy page). Speak free.

    29.) Fo rizzle! Someday.

    30.) He really is doing a good job marketing his official self actually... maybe he's a paid advert. Brand new creative future-poof marketing strategy.

    31.) Always a wise aesthetical improvement.

    32.) Agreed.

    33.) All it took was a little brainstorm, possibly, though I shan't judge, interests may simply differ. Like equivocal sets of chiffer.

    34.) Medical bills? The rest of it: stark necessities.

    35.) Indeed, the less they say the stronger their image! Real rock stars seem like typical outcasts too; uninterested in anything short of their own craft.

    36.) A welcome alternative purpose.

    37.) I'm all about oldhat, like a tophat, like the Top Cat, always bold that, is my program. Actually haven't borrowed a book at a library in ages though...

    38.) MTV exits.

    39.) A wise method usually involving CTRL+F.

    40.) Top ten?

    41.) Wasn't that like way back (MACHINE!) in 2007?

    42.) I hope you don't happen to get a job at a Venture Capital Firm.

    43.) Not a real job, only studies and freelancing. Hoped to stay 'free' forever, but didn't really pursue the proper path...

    44.) Aha.

    45.) I really thought it'd take less time to respond to all of these too. :L Longer list than it seemed to be when I read what I'd written, but I wonder if it was when I wrote it...

    46.) Mhm.

    47.) XD How about taking a walk? Or watching a movie? Or singing violently? Or nevermind looks like you are doing the latter: writing something...

    48.) Nope. Thought about it a long time; eventually decided I don't really want to brand myself. I like tattoos overall, but I starting to feel more and more opposed to the idea of having any permanent image on myself. I don't have any symbols I can relate to so strongly I'd like them to be 'eternal', and see potential anonymity as more and more of a useful trait. Basically, if I think of getting a tattoo I ask myself 'why', and I don't really have an answer, but plenty of reasons not to get one. Maybe that'll change some day though.

    49.) I know rite.

    50.) Comments I can't wait to respond to.

    51.) Mmm and devised chaos = not chaos. The beauty lies in the spontaneity of it all, like with nature: the lack (or subtility) of pattern or packaging.

    52.) You know social media huh? :P Assume we have plenty of alternating views on that too.

    53.) Oh man, surgery!? I didn't know you had a day job either btw. PM time...

    54.) Touche XD

    55.) Oh right, THIS is my favorite blog. My bad. Actually I keep forgetting but that's a comment for another topic...



    58.) Though if we lived there, wouldn't we call them our Worlds as well? This is Tellus, ya know.

    59.) Ah the good old days in between the old and the new days, in which Twitter was just not all that interesting... interesting how such an arbitrary concept turned into such an all-encompassing thing!

    60.) Oh that's true. Damn.

    61.) I am writing.

    62.) Something like Total Recall, maybe?

    63.) I swear I typed the above before I saw this. XD

    64.) If you know what NOT to do, you know what to do too!

    65.) Seconded.

    66.) XD

    67.) He had some really interesting posts though, read before I stumbled upon this. I feel like this list unintentionally turned into a way too bashful spin-off, was not what I intended but... gotta check if he's still going or no... he is going! Active as ever too.

    68.) What vengeful wills! :O

    69.) Sad but true. XD But in an entertaining, ironic way...

    70.) That is true...

    71.) I could use a good driver. Thought of getting a green card.

    72.) It's old news now.

    73.) I keep learning new things about Sweden! Wonder if that's a real TV network hmm...

    74.) It's probably brought him a fair share of new traffic...

    75.) You do in the next one...

    76.) Good advice.

    77.) Anyone known?

    78.) You're in control!

    79.) Better Duck Duck Go!

    80.) I may have been temporarily weakened.. but I'm alive!!! I'll keep jittering here while others Twitter in fear: illiterate critters who can't click a lid without tear. I'm oldskool. So cool. Clint Eastwood I picture standing in the shadow but I'm radder and my flow's smooth like a ladder: you can't climb... without going over and going like a globe of batter. I'm the Mad Hatter: you're Tofu. I'm oldskool.

    81.) That's one very correct way to put it.

    82.) Yupp.

    83.) Life is all about giving a hand... a go. So we don't cramp.

    84.) Would definitely be healthier.

    85.) Hope he doesn't become a Shy Guy.

    86.) Probably a very business-minded; fast blogger who puts little surplus time into revising.

    87.) PodCamp is probably a real thing though!

    88.) I do like to Quake with a Shake every once in a while.

    89.) Harsh. XD

    90.) Oh yeah, you're right, though without the 'Papers'.

    91.) Highly probable. If you happen to have the right one though...

    92.) The kek is a lie!

    93.) XD At least I chose an old spoiler. Great movie.

    94.) Word.

    95.) It is pretty cool. :) Have five profiles there I think. Just need to start using them.

    96.) I'm pretty sure he does though...

    97.) Almost...

    98.) I assume you relate. :P

    99.) That's true, though if you don't have a good internal soundcard you'll need an external one, and the right hardware to connect it (firewire seems popular). If I'd built my own computer I don't think I'd have had the foresight to include it, but I have it now! Woo!

    100.) And the law of the psychotic.
