I shut down my Moblog today. It turned up from some of the google searches I was doing with my various usernames over the years. Moblog is a place where you can send photos and it makes a little blog out of them. Not too much different from flickr or some of the other places on the net. When I joined up they didn’t even have a US presence it was .co.uk or something.
Their main goal was to target the camera phone market and since I had just gotten a camera phone I was all over it. Something to do with the combination of slow internet and a crappy camera brings out my creative side.
I just spend the last half hour copying my posts into Roborooter.com. I gave them the correct dates and gave them all the moblog tag. The only thing I didn’t copy were the comments, it was a small tight nit community and I was new so people said hi. There wasn’t an easy way to import that so it’s lost to bits of time.
You can see them all at once by browsing the moblog tag.
I’ve got a nice compact archive for the majority of my writings. Inspired by Steve Yeggie mentioning he found posts of 16 year old him on usenet (his chat here), I decided to look into me. I don’t think there is a single other place I’ve written more then for here. There’s a distinct possiblility of instant messaging being a larger repository of my thoughts and plans, but I’m goign to argue it’s a different medium. Those messages (Adium’s got 8448 transcripts going back to May 2004) are much much much less thought out. Espicially if we’ve been talking for hours.
