My last post on Posterous (and therefore Blogger, LiveJournal, Tumblr, Xanga, etc.)

Posterous - no thanks...

Just over four months ago yours truly began a grand experiment with Posterous, the anti-aggregator. That experiment is now complete.

Whereas lifestreaming, as seen on the likes of FriendFeed and MyBlogLog, pulls in content from disparate sources for reading on a single page, Posterous does quite the opposite — blasting out the same content to multiple destinations.

In my original defence of Posterous I wrote of my desire to hit people where they live — i.e. let folks comment on my shit in the online spaces where they’re already active. But in practice it hasn’t quite worked out that way. While I’ve gained a couple of followers on Blogger (scroll down to the very bottom of the page) a single post on WordPress (with a shout-out on Twitter) has generated more discussion than the combined comments everywhere else — including right here on Posterous!

I won’t be abandoning Posterous altogether, but from this point onwards all content will originate from my blog — at least until I launch my brand-new site in 2010 😎
