As some of you already know, I've created a new category for Salutor.com that will in some ways function as its own blog: Cyril's Gleans. Cyril (aka "George Cyril Wellbeloved" or "Cyril of the Valley") is an individual I sometimes describe as the world's greatest blogger-without-a-blog. He is, among other things, the most ravenous reader I know and has long been the source of many of the interesting articles I run across on the web (when I have time to look through them). Because he has never shown any particular interest in publishing his own blog, I plan to try to re-post at least a portion of the daily gleans he sends in the Cyril's Gleans category of this blog. These entries will not appear on the home page of Salutor, but will reside on the web where they can easily be searched or perused at will.
As always, Cyril, thanks for all the great gleans!
Welcome to Salutor, now the official (personal) blog of Stephen Fraser. Up until now, www.salutor.com has been the site of Tenebris, the unofficial blog of Lulu.com and a very sporadic resource for folks interested in independent publishing and the user-generated content revolution. No more! You can find the archives of Tenebris here, but it is probably appropriate to quote the text of the last post I added before tucking it away:
The archives of Tenebris will remain available, and hopefully one or two of the smart folks who used to check in on the site will take an interest in my new endeavors. I and my associates have a number of sites "in development," as they say, among them a museum of spam and a site devoted to the poetry of paid search advertising.
If you are one of the stalwart souls who once subscribed to Tenebris, I'd like to thank you and once again to beg your forgiveness for having provided such an inconsistant resource. It's worth noting that Lulu, a company I spent four years helping build before leaving at the end of September, still has an official blog, and that the self-publishing forum I started in Google Groups now has a real administrator in the (very good) person of Dehanna Bailee.
