Edd Dumbill says it's time for me to write a book.
Problem is that I am a blogger, not a book writer. I am spoiled by the interactivity. The immediacy. The fact that a post gets an immediate response -- or not. That gives me a lot of data, helps me work quickly, which is important. Because even though I can work quickly, change still comes at a glacial pace.
For example, the recent thread on apps got huge coverage. The stuff I'm writing now about oEmbed is getting very little. Should we conclude that there's little interest in oEmbed, or that it's politically sensitive, or perhaps that there are so few people eligable to have their content appear on Twitter that the idea is stagnating, and only being implemented at companies that Twitter deems worthy of partnership. (See how politics and tech are always deeply intertwined?)
So what I need more than anything is an editor and collaborator. Someone who can take the stream that I have created and continue to create, and find the ideas that have lasting value, and organize them into something coherent. I had a great editor when I wrote at Wired, but she's not available. Someone who reads my stuff, and has for a long time, and wants to make something from it.
