When I started Parallax at the end of last year, there was a lot of debate at Newmerix over the format. I argued long and hard with my blogging partner-in-crime, Tonya McKinney, in favor of the long-form blarticle format. I've stuck pretty hard to my guns here, and have tried to build Parallax into a living archive of well thought out, well presented commentary on big issues in the world of IT. I think to some extent I am being successful to that end, and I am extremely pleased with the readership and feedback I'm getting after only 4 short months of being online.
However, there are times when something relevant is going on, and I simply want to point readers towards it. In those cases, I have chosen not to, because i did not want to taint the Parallax format. After much debate, rather than change the Parallax format, Tonya and I put together a companion blog to it. I call it "Big Endian". So as I scan blogs and articles about Enterprise 2.0, Oracle, SAP, etc.. i'll promise to put the things I find most interesting on Big Endian for your aggregated viewing pleasure. Get the longer, well thought out stuff here - get the shorter, quippy and referential stuff there.
So officially, to check out my companion blog, click here. (And I still promise not to talk about the latest movie I saw)
