The events of the last year and the role social media has played in them are causing some to think about where they post their thoughts. I’ve had a love/hate relationship with social media over the years so I’m happy to see a renewed interest in blogging. Matt Mullenweg has gone so far as to say 2018 is the year of blogging.

A few of people I follow have started posting more on their own sites recently. Of note, a former co-worker, Brendan, talks about Steering Clear of the Dumpster Fire that is Twitter. Also, Dave Rupert has started his very own RSS Club, although I’m violating the rules of RSS Club by posting the link here.

Three cheers for blogging & RSS in 2018!!!

Goodbye Boston PhoenixThe Phoenix is publishing their last issue on March 15th. Bummer.

In other news, I’m so out of touch with what’s going on in Boston that I didn’t realize that the 101.7 part of WFNX 101.7 was sold to Clear Channel last year. WFNX.com exists as an internet radio station, but that looks to be in jeopardy at this point too. Double bummer.

I heard a lot of great music on FNX, and found out when and where a lot of bands were playing in the Phoenix (that’s what we did before the internets). I’m sorry to hear that these two institutions will no longer be part of the Boston scene.
