First Post From Path – a Test

This is just a test to see how Path posts to WordPress, which I just hooked it up to. – with Linda at Casa de Ladd

About Rick Ladd

Born in 1947, I am an officially retired pensioner who still has two teenage daughters and a desire to contribute. I remain intensely interested in, and fascinated by, Systems Thinking, Machine Learning, Knowledge Management, Decision Intelligence, and Business in general. I am also conversant in such concepts as innovation and ideation, collaborative tools and strategies, crowdsourcing, and the use of social media to accomplish goals ranging from improving business processes to promoting small retail businesses. Since my "retirement" I have done a little bit of freelancing as an editor/proofreader, as well as some technical writing. I've also done a fair amount of Facebook marketing as well. There's lots more where that came from. Need some help? Perhaps another set of eyes? Contact me. The first one's free! ;0) View all posts by Rick Ladd

    Looks like it worked fine. I’m curious about why you decided to use Path. Is it easier? More private/flexible? I wonder if it works in China. I hadn’t heard of Path before. I wonder how they plan to make money. But then I’ve wondered that about a lot of the internet. Not that making money’s the only thing, of course, but for a business, it seems at least a fairly essential aspect.

      Hi Andrea – Yes. It worked pretty good, though it didn’t provide a headline; I had to add that after the fact. It also left out Linda’s last name, which is probably a good thing.

      I have a fair number of friends who are involved in tech at one level or another, so I’m frequently being asked to try new apps or I’m just introduced to them because.

      I think my use of Path came about via a friend who is a well-known information architect. He likes it because he can limit his sharing to a specific group of friends. I like it because it allows me to post simultaneously to Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare. I could also post to Tumblr and, as you see, I can now post to WordPress. Since I have my FB posts forwarded to Twitter, and my WordPress posts forwarded to FB and Tumblr, I’m not sure how much overlap I will create with my posts; I’m experimenting and, sometimes, letting the chips fall where they may. My ratio of patience to give-a-shitness has been changing as I age.


Go ahead! Give me a tongue lashing.
