empty blogs

Eric Dolecki points out that there are a few Macromedia related blogs running in stealth mode as of late. I too have noticed a reduction of atleast Flash related content from some of the blogs I try to follow. Personally I put it down to the fact that most of the folk are busy donating their ‘community’ time to beta testing. That and it’s probably difficult to blog while under an NDA.

I have no metrics to back this up so it could just be wishful thinking. Being under no such restrictions I can ponder this openly.

    Hmm, for what it’s worth, I’ve also noticed a decrease in the past for conversation on mailing lists during beta periods. Weblogs have an additional factor, in that one address holds one writer. Maybe a serverside aggregator can keep the volume more steady…?

    For sure. MXNA is one of the first pages I open each morning. I really shouldn’t be complaining, I have too much to read as it is.

    It is kind of cool to observe the “climate” in these online communities.
