Lucas Whitefield Hixson of Enformable shares his insight on Zemanta and blogging this week, happy readings!
Who are you?
My name is Lucas Whitefield Hixson, and I am a nuclear researcher based in Chicago Illinois. Prior to nuclear research I was involved with developing computer applications that work with us, not for us. The most exciting experience that I was able to bring to nuclear research stemmed from projects that I had worked with developing automated intelligence systems and computer experiences involving linked transformable objects that connect human thought, memory, sensory representation, communication, and computational possibility.
What do you blog about?
Currently I research and publish nuclear-energy related research, news, FOIA documents, media, you name it.
When did you start using Zemanta?
I started first using Zemanta almost a year ago, and have found a few new ways to help really connect or link related information.
How does Zemanta help you blog better?
Obviously as with most archives, it is imperative that information is sorted and filed in a consistent manner to ensure max efficiency and user friendliness. Zemanta helps us create custom lists of related materials that our users love. Every author has a different style they use to create lists.
Do you have a power user tip that you can share with our users?
We find that if we use a standard methodology for titling materials, that we can use Zemanta to create specially targeted lists of links. All that is required is a string-format for the beginning of the title, either a document number or date. When you create a new post with that style of title, Zemanta will auto suggest other posts from the same category and style, helping you create more targeted lists.
