Over the next few days I’m going to be posting about one of the highlights of my year, the forthcoming Greenbelt festival, which is the weekend after next in Cheltenham. I’m sorry if my posts on the festival bore or alienate a proportion of my readers, but its a risk I’m going to take.
The geek in me was rather pleased to see that Greenbelt has gone all hi tech this year, embracing splendid new technologies such as Technorati (a search engine for blog posts), Flickr (a search engine for photos stored online) and del.icio.us (A search engine for links which other people think are worth seeing). Hope that isn’t too technical. The idea is that blog posts, photos and links can all be ‘tagged’ with a special label (called a ‘tag’, curiously) which means that people who are interested in reading about and seeing pictures of the festival will be able to find them all in one place.
At the moment there is nothing to see really, but hopefully over the next couple of weeks that will begin to change. Try these links, then try them again in a day or twos time:
Hopefully in a few minutes / hours / days my post will appear on the Technorati page. If it works I’ll explain how you can do the same thing on your own greenbelt-related website or using your greenbelt-related photos.
