Vox

Anyone else on Vox? Feel free to add me - applejade.vox.com

I was talking to marnanel about it the other evening.

There are different levels of "Friend" over on Vox. You can be "Family", a "Friend", or a "Neighbour". Y'know, for that added complexity of drama =) "WHUDDYU MEAN I'M JUST A NEIGHBOUR?!?! I SHOULD BE FAMILY!! one eleventy one..."

But it might all depend on what group of people find their way onto Vox first. If there's an established age group/culture/demographic, we might not have hatty little shits running around, at least not for the first little while.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet. I have journals and blogs and accounts almost everywhere just because of the curiosity factor, but I don't use any of them regularly. I just posted an introduction as an introduction for now. It's an exerpt from an English translation of Dream of the Red Chamber.

Since I started off with a literary exerpt, I thought maybe this could be the journal where I never actually explicitly say anything, but I'd post only literary exerpts to express whatever is on my mind. I could talk about what's bothering me completely in subtext. It would be like Picard and Dathon at El-Adrel. =)

Or not. I dunno.

Anyway, I have two Vox Invites. Anyone want one?

Will have to dig out the David Hawkes translation of that passage. Hawkes' version of Hongloumeng is my gold standard for literary translation.

What exactly does Vox do? I looked at the website and it seemed to be hand-waving of the "We're Web 2.0 and do things with APIs!" sort. Is it any clearer from the inside?

Not much clearer from here.

They have support for easy posting of images, audio and video files, book titles and "collections" which is a group of assets (images, audio, video files, book titles) that have some meaning to you. But all the assets must be hosted on specific services (like Photobucket, Flickr, Amazon, etc.) and there's no support for a personal webspace host.

I honestly don't see much of a difference between Vox and Blogspot in terms of user experience.
