i.feedTacoma: Citizens Undernourished?

Mike: "I haven't eaten for a week." Ike: "Force yourself."

Does anyone think feed.tacoma.com lacks the key ingredients to nurture a healthy community? I mean if this site was your daily bread, could you live by this alone? Could you live without it?

NIN,

Good idea to ramp up the volume.

But that may be a bit too much "content."

hey how hard would it be to have the full comment come up in the feed tacoma discussion forum RSS feed?

I think Tacoma in general is in a bit of a lull, not just its bloggers. There's still plenty of activity to go around here at FeedTacoma but I can easily see a combo of the dark months, the painful economy, and a lack of "newness" here in town contributing to that lull.

How would I personally gauge what is a success when it comes to how FeedTacoma informs and keeps the conversation going? If there are more posts coming up on the homepage, more discussions going on, more Tacoma photos coming in, more local shops in one place, and more events on the calendar than any one person not getting paid for this can reasonably do in a day -- that's a success for us all.

Thanks, as always, for everyone that makes FeedTacoma a fantastic community and keep up the fine work!

Kevin: when is the FeedTacoma open-source work-team meeting? I notice there are still a few bugs in the system.

I've been reading FeedTacoma for almost two years. I didn't attempt to respond to the comments until after the first year. The sign-up process, for whatever reason, kept me from straying from Exit 133 where I was making comments somewhat often and exclusively. On that site it is very easy to immediately sign your name and comment before you forget your ...your train of thought.

I have a lot of laughs reading both Exit 133 and FeedTacoma, so for me both sites are daily skim-reading.

The biggest mystery to me is why FeedTacoma is not overwhelmed with comments and blogs from local students who would aspire to become writers. This is real-world experience.







About

This is my real-time novel, "Idealism in Tacoma," which will attempt to sort out the virtual new order I discovered in local blogs and in local 'hoods. I welcome you to join me as I press on in search of answers to the ongoing question: "Is it new?"

NEW! for 2011:
"QUANTUM FOAM," the second real-time novel by Mofo from the Hood, is happening now!

"For whatever mysterious reason, I must act beyond the role of spectator. Something beyond a portable history must be explored.

Therefore in order for me to define the concepts and categories of realities beyond the realm of my real-time novel "Idealism in Tacoma," a wholly other discourse must take form.

Ladies and whatever, let us go forth into the unknown dimension of imagination. I hereby offer you my all new materialist inspired "out of nothing" real-time novel: 'QUANTUM FOAM'."

*MFTH was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington USA. As a lifelong resident, uninspired by money, power, or fame, he eventually resorted to reading internet blogs, sometimes at the public library. In May, 2008, during the Great Recession, he started "Mofo from the Hood's Blog" on FeedTacoma.com, because it was free. If this blog ever helps him to attain money, power, and fame, he will probably stay in Tacoma.
