As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been thinking lately about ways to improve this site. I began posting in August 2007 with three goals: To do something productive with my free time, to keep in touch with my family and friends, and to start interesting conversations. If you read the site or even if you’ve just happened by, I’d be grateful for your suggestions and comments! It’s been a lot of fun so far and I’d like to keep that going.Here are a few of my thoughts on where the site should be going:
- The content. Features like “Archispeak” and “Bad Movie of the Week” have been a great way to organize my thoughts and regularize the way I work on the site. Another great example is Andreas Kluth’s search for the greatest thinker. I’d love to develop more lines of inquiry, whether it’s about architecture, language, a Book of the Month, or something completely different.
- The audience. In addition to family and friends, there are other readers I would like to reach out to. If you’ve found something on this site interesting, why? Do you have a blog of your own, or know of some blog that I should link to or that is engaging in the same dialogue? (By the way, check out my blogroll at right, there are already some great folks there!)
- The name. “Design . Build . Learn . Repeat” has always seemed (to me) only partially effective; I like how it looks, but it doesn’t sound quite right or roll off the tongue properly. And yet I’d still like the new name to be meaningful in some way. I actually have one in mind, but I’d like to invite outside suggestions before I give it away.
