The web is becoming a much more complicated, and not necessarily more useful, place. Rather like the proliferation of mobile devices that messengers typically have interact with these days. When I was first on the road, I carried a radio, a day-sheet in a folder and perhaps some change for the phone, and maybe a phone-card (remember those?) These days, most couriers will have a radio, a mobile phone, a PDA to receive jobs and digitally capture PODs, and possibly a GPS tracking device, as well as day-sheets as back-up for those occasions when the PDA doesn’t work.
At the dawn of the messenger web, in 1996, there was the electronic mailing list (which then resided at cycling.org) and the messengers.org site. And that was it. Now every messenger event seems to have its own web-site, facebook group, myspace page, twitter account. And there are about 500 000 cycling forums, zillions of cycling related blogs… it’s hard to keep up with what’s going on.
If you are the sort of person that likes to keep up, but doesn’t want all the hassle of clicking around, then there’s this new Networked blog thing, which will automatically put all new posts from your fave blogs onto your facebook profile. So if you like Moving Target, and use facebook a lot, you can save me and you a couple of clicks by following this blog. One last click here will do it.
