What's a Blogsolidation?

I thought I should pause for a moment and answer those who have politely asked "What's up with your blogs?"

It's a Blogsolidation!

I am working on bringing it all together, and all together means this:

The ThinkHammer blog will be focused on personal use of technology, cool tech, and use of web tools and social networking to enhance productivity and connectedness. It's essentially going to be my official blog. On the sidebar, it will also have links to the other endeavors and projects both that I have going inside ThinkHammer as well as those that I have going on with other organizations.

The Phil.Yanov.com blog will slow down a bit as it will will have mostly just personal stuff on it. Family pictures continue to show up there. All of the cool tech, however, will start showing up here instead.

ThinkHammer will also have a ThinkHammer Radio channel which will contain my podcasts on technology. I haven't settled on this entirely yet, but I think there will be a single feed for both short and long form pieces that mostly deal with technology. The shows will be sourced in a couple of ways, the primary source will be using the audio from our live radio call-in show. We are also going to have a new way to interact with us by leaving us messages on the phone which we will sorth through and answer as short form pieces.

And then, there is everything else, which will largely continue on as it has, but not really. The but not really part mostly is about the GSATC website. You may notice that we just gave it a brand new coat of paint. (An Orange Coat of paint, that is.) We will also be expanding it's news coverage and adding functions to it as well. We've had the site humming along for a few years and have gotten a fair amount of traffic and a loyal fan base despite our many abuses of those same loyal fans. We're putting together something that will deliver more and fresher content on a continuous basis as well as delivering more service in the form of a better directory. Watch closely we'll be dribbling out those features over the coming weeks.

As always, thank you for your patient forebearance as we strive to improve our service to you...
