Learning curves…and Greenville,SC

Well, it’s about time to take another trip to interesting and vibrant Greenville, South Carolina. I fell in love with this city when I first visited it in the summer last year and stumbled upon the entry to Falls River Park. I must have taken dozens of photographs of the falls, the suspension bridge, the outdoor playhouse and the walking paths. Very cool place. I spent most of the day there and even took a brief nap in the shade. It will be interesting to see it in the winter.

And interesting to once more ramble through the downtown shops, galleries, and restaurants. Stay tuned for updates on that.

Tonight I am making virtual journeys as a newb through the byways of both Wikipedia – as a new author – and Facebook’s app development pages. Most users never stroll further into these woods than the article page or their own profile pages but there is a whole nother tech-ecology just behind the facades; Wiki’s unique and challenging markup language and Facebook’s general lack of intuitive controls once you leave your “home” tab are just two of the many dangerous fauna that stalk behind the public entrances.

So websites, forums, books (remember books?), and research, research, research. Something to do when I get tired of wandering around in the park and crash at one of the cafe wifi hotspots with my laptop for a bit of netsurfing and a cup of chai.

Stay tuned…
