January 2022 - Map of Inquiry

Open questions and areas of interest

I’ve quietly given this site a re-skin. It’s not completely finished yet but it’s getting there.

I made a little “map of inquiry” trying to make sense of the various streams of interest across the projects I’m working on. This map of inquiry is intentionally obtuse, it’s designed to give a vibe rather than a specific roadmap of what I’m working on. As a snapshot for Jan 2022 I thought I’d write down some open avenues of inquiry within the focus areas:

Networked Writing

Blogging! Yes, blogging is still too damn hard. Some active lines of inquiry for me:

Indie Consulting

Indie consulting is where I pay the bills and obviously my book project is exploring this concept in depth. Some active lines of inquiry:

Networked Education

With the launch of the SEO MBA I have a playground to apply the ideas around education that I’ve been mulling on for a long time. Lines of inquiry:

Digital Bricolage

I’ve been obsessed for a long time with the web as a texture - malleable programming, mini hacks and flexible personal scripting. From using importxml in Google Docs to writing little apps on Glitch/Replit.

That’s a bit of stream of consciousness for open lines of inquiry that I’m considering and thinking about in Jan 2022. What about you?
