And yet, here I am, making one–committing to revive (or keep alive) this blogspace in need of new life or a plug pulling. But it’s part of Brown’s 2010 overall “branding strategy” to more tightly integrate its various threads of digital communications into something woven, stronger, more consistent.
For 2010 Brown WILL, among other things…
- Migrate the main website and blog into a cleaner, easier to navigate site
- Keep a better journal of Brown projects, thoughts and musings for open comment (and the betterment of coffee)
- Link to the wider world of coffee friends and colleagues (again, for the betterment of coffee
Blogging, it seems, sadly took a hit on a wide front in 2009 with the rise of Twitter and touchscreen smart phones that punish people with fingers larger than an 8 year old.

I’ll close for now because I’m waaay over 140 characters (kidding!). But I hope I can encourage you to remap this space in your digital thought life and to contribute to the conversation.
