Fall Colors in the AdirondacksThis really is my favorite time of year in the Adirondacks. We’re just past Columbus Day so the bulk of the crowds are gone for the season.

I’m sure glad I made the drive to attend the event I mentioned in a previous postSmart Actions for Real Growth. It’s been a too long since I last visited the Adirondack Museum who co-sponsored today’s symposium with Hamilton County Tourism. I always recommend the Museum as a “must-do” Adirondack activity, just go and see for yourselves.

Time for Change

October 10th, 2007 · No Comments · Miscellania

I’m really digging the new tagging feature that version 2.3 has implemented. It’s not a world-changing paradigm shift or anything, but it is a significant enhancement to the existing method of taxonomy.

What does all that mean? If I had more time, I’d go on forever. Suffice it to say that there is going to be some category housekeeping going on. I really appreciate the thoughtful inclusion of the powerful, but dangerous category to tags converter. How about a tag to category if I screw up?

I need to give this whole thing a think. What do I do with It would be really cool if any of my tags automatically became tags. Anyway, hope everyone bears with me while I suss things out.
