Gotta say it's been a long time coming. And then yesterday I realized I was within a few inches of putting it together. So that's what I did this morning.
You can see from the menu that my Scripting News world, which is one-half of my online existence, has a blog, a linkblog, a top-40 list (which is a nice feature of the linkblog), a place for discussion (threads), a river and a personal site.
The linkblog is the content you see in the gray box in the right margin on Scripting pages.
The other half of my online life is my work. There's a worknote for this bit. If you look in the menubar of that site you'll see how that side fits together.
Note that all of this is hosted on my own servers, I'm not depending on Facebook, Twitter, Google or even Wordpress or Tumblr for my hosting (special mention for the latter two because they wouldn't lock me in, the others would).
I've also been investing in smoothing out all the components to make it possible for more people to install it on their own servers, on EC2 or Rackpace or elsewhere. Right now it's easiest on EC2. That's where EC2 For Poets fits in.
