Niche Link Aggregators

Friday, July 18th, 2008

Having just read:

http://anarchogeek.com/…communities

my interest in working on logical-fallacies.net has been rekindled.

I have to admit that my time has been somewhat taken up recently, what with moving to a new country and starting a new job. Any time that I have been able to devote to computers has been spent on Haddock CMS or Oedipus Decision Maker and a couple of other smaller projects.

The plan with the logical fallacies site is to collect examples of Logical Fallacies.

I’m not sure that I agree completely with the author of the article linked to above. There will probably be a shifting focus for the general purpose link aggregator communities. That’s inevitable because the services that is the most popular is by definition is aimed at the lowest common denominator. This means that the functionality of the software has to be the most limited and general.

I don’t want to use existing software for logical-fallacies.net because I want to tailor the site to the problem of identifying logical fallacies. The case may be that there are no specialised needs of this problem and that a generic sollution (like a forum or a wiki) would be a better solution. If that is the case, then I will have wasted my time. I don’t think this will be the case.

I hope that Saul and I can continue his work with Oedipus:
