An Introduction To AlignMap In Cites
AlignMap In Cites is a new tumblelog I’m auditioning as an augmentation to the AlignMap web site and weblog.
For readers who are in the adult, non-geek population, the Wikipedia definition of tumblelog is provided below:
It may also be helpful to think of AlignMap In Cites as the quicker, less obsessive, happy go lucky younger sibling of the curmudgeonly, prolix, and sometimes abstruse AlignMap Weblog.
Both the design of tumblelogs described above and Tumblr, the software that powers AlignMap In Cites, make posting a link to a site, such as an online abstract or text, the home page of a compliance-enhancing product, or another blog covering an aspect of adherence, a quick, easy process. Posting a link to web site X can be accomplished without leaving web site X.
The ease and speed of posting makes this process ideal for pointing to items that require little or no explanation beyond, “Hey, look at this.” It’s not unlike mentioning to a colleague over lunch that he might be interested in a study on noncompliance of 50-60 year old males with hip fracture rehabilitation programs in the new issue of the New England Journal.
Although I just began posting to AlignMap In Cites this morning, I’ve been playing with Good Clean Wholesome Fun, the tumblelog sidekick for my personal Heck of a Guy blog, for four or five days and feel as though I’m getting the hang of the thing.
While I’m convinced this format is worth trying, I am not yet convinced of its utility. As I said, it’s a tryout, and you get free tickets to the dress rehearsal.
