First Augmented Blog Post. (Thanks, Zemanta.)

Aquaponics is a method of agriculture which takes elements of aquarium keeping, hydroponics, and can be slotted well into a permaculture system.

Take a large fishpond.  Take some growing beds of gravel to hold plant roots up in a liquid solution.  Pump the water which the fish have excreted in and pump it over that grow bed.  Return the water back to the fish pond minus all the excrement, which the plants have meanwhile snacked on and found to be delicious.

I'm having a go at this, in the next year.  I'll be posting pics and articles here and to my Facebook account, so everyone can stay informed.

QUESTION: Does anyone actually read blogs anymore?  I'm wondering, because aside from the clumsiness of FB Notes, I find I'm posting more things to FB than to Blogger and Flickr combined, these days, and it seems that the readership for blogs is in decline - is that true?  Anyone got comments on this?

teddlesruss - i actually quit my facebook for this reason. i was spending too much time on it and it felt like i had just eaten too many salt and vinegar chips and the inside of my mouth was all lacerated and i was nauseated by the whole thing.

if people want to abandon blogs for facebook and twitter, good luck to them. i do think that blogging has suffered because there is only a finite amount of attention that we have in our day. if we give it to something else, we don't give it to our bloglives.

funny, 5 years ago, before fb, i never would have thought of blogs as 'old fashioned' forms of communication which enable a certain depth of engagement. relative to the micro-blogging thing, this is exactly how they seem.

see, i've sent you a couple hundred words already!
