The BlogLand Time Tunnel Project, Part I

Here we are, as far back in blogtime as you can travel in this blog. The time stamp may read April 4, 2005, but really this is being written and posted on Jan. 6, 2006.

How is that possible? By their nature, blogs are linear objects. They start in one time/space and flow along like rivers until they reach the present. Or so you think.

Those who inhabit BlogLand may gripe and complain about the glitches here but as the old Chinese saying goes “Amidst calamity lies opportunity.” Those glitches have created time pockets woven into the fabric of the blog. Certainly, newer software now allows blog authors to erase these older entries but they can be useful.

The best way to really experience this time travel would be to go back to the main front page of this blog. Then go to the bottom of the page and find all the numbered pages. Click to the second to last page on that counter, or sometimes the very last page, then look for this entry again.

Now, look around at the landscape. Here we are back in time. This post is squeezed in between the blog index (another great use for those old entry pockets) on the one side and [post 10894] on the other. (Of course, you can click on that link instead of viewing the entire string of old posts if you want to jump around.) And doesn’t that bring back memories. (Nothing like having a few great fantasies!) This of course changes the linear nature of the blog.

>>>Well, Keith this is a bit safer than doing it in someone else’s blog. And there’s no lurker involved here either. Think of this as a timewarp slide into the deeper recesses. I think it was [blog dz2502] who said no one looks beyond the first three posts on the frontpage of a blog. This experiment and other recent happenings have shown you can really open the whole blog to comments if you can find a way to easily direct folks.

>>>And then there’s Celtic Karma still spinning through time. Well, as we both know, there are more dangerous diversions.
