The Kiloblog


This is Kiloblogging

Filed under: metakible — raka @ 13:44

Each day, many millions of words are thrown onto the web logs of the world. Reading them is often good fun and can nourish the mind. Yet who can absorb the great multitude?

Therefore I propose to you the kiBle, my name for a blog post no more than 1024 bytes long. Here on the kiloblog I, Raka, promise to divide and condense my thoughts into clearly labelled, easily digested kiBles. Each one will be worth reading, if only because reading it is but a moment’s work.


  1. First post!

    I like the idea of 1kb blog posts. I wonder when you’ll start to feel confined by this self-imposed brevity, I feel it’s almost like texting.

    On a more geeky note, I just laughed at myself for using a command line calculator (bc) to find out how many days 1024 hours is…

    I look forward to reading more

  2. I already do feel constrained; that’s part of the point. For now it the good kind of constraint. I wonder though, if it will make things *impossible* rather than merely hard.

    I might have something more to say about command lines and calculators in later post.

  3. Pah!
    I put pseudo-HTML Tags around my First post! ( ) and wordpress ate them. Now, instead of a lame try at being witty, I actually look like one of the fools I was trying to parody.

    Serves me right, I guess :)

  4. I got the irony anyway. Lets see what happens when I < spell it out > with ampersand codes.
