Blogging from 35,000ft

I’m sitting in seat 20A of Delta flight 101 from Atlanta to Buenos Aires, catching up with the blogging backlog that built up during the RSA Conference. I usually compose my blog entries directly in Roller‘s web UI, but, since there bain’t be no Interweb up here, I’m using Flock‘s built-in blog editor, and a very comfortable experience it is. I can type up the bulk of the text in the ‘Editor’ view, tweak formatting in ‘Source’ view and get a pretty good idea of how it will look in ‘Preview’, fiipping back and forth as I go.

While this is very convenient, what is really cool is that I have Flock in ‘offline’ mode, but it allows me to load pages from its cache, so, since most everything I’ve looked at lately is cached, I can just go to a URL, and I see it exactly as if I was connected. This lets me look up links, check references, even view source to remind myself of the formatting I use when posting over at The Aquarium. In fact, it’s probably more productive than being connected, since there’s no email to distract me

  1. Cool, Pat. Maybe you can demo Flock to me one of these days? Have a wonderful trip. I’ll see you at CommunityOne or JavaOne. Marina
