You aren’t going to read many more insightful pieces than this.

Speaking of Converstation, is there any chance that this blog will be a bit more, well, conversational? As in your responding to comments thus creating threads thus creating a conversation?

This blog has always felt a bit like a guy in a car with a megaphone driving by at 50 mph. Fire and forget. One way. No feedback. No give and take. Sorry, gotta go, on to the next post.

I call blogs like this drive-by blogs.

If you are unwilling to truly walk the talk and actually engage with your readers why is this any different then a traditional newspaper or magazine article?

Doug is absolutely right about making my blog more conversational. Like everyone else, I'm trying to find the space to fit all my "conversations" into a 24/7 time frame. But I simply must boost my own conversation time with the folks in this key conversation about innovation and design.
Thanks for the kick Doug.

I've noticed that you have been engaging more. And I can see your gears turning as you add to what's being said in this space through your writings and your increasing dialogue.

This is how we learn. To your point about beta, this is how it's done. Experimenting with our tools differently—seeing what works and doesn't and learning.

My follow up post on L+E will make the case that contrary to popular belief, design does not always = control. Especially the direction it is heading. People freak out when the word design is used. Time to get over it.

Second, I would be glad, if I could use the Widget Engine as Javascript Interpreter, including the special functions and filesystem access on all hosts it is available for via external scripts. That is, if I write a Javascript that represents a macro for a Javascript capable application I’d like to IPC with the Widget Engine and run parts of the script on that. I mainly need filesystem access on all three major operating systems for Desktop and Application macroing.
