Fumes from my Role-Bloggers post made me think of personas as blog post categories. With categories, each post belonging to zero or more categories. With personas, each post is more of a topic on which one or more personas comments on.
Fumes from the paragraph above made me think of conversations as blog posts. Starting with the persona as category idea, replace personas with people and allow iterations to get conversation captured as a post. Too many ways leads to this idea. Each Gillmor Gang podcast is, in essence, a conversation post. Each courtroom hearing is a conversation post.
In short, I took the boat to Timbuktu to get to New York. Hey, it's more fun this way! Besides, there are still too many No Left Turn signs in my head.
