joel's latest article on building communities with software was emailed to the subscriber list today. it talks about the design decisions made for the forum software and why they were made that way. as most of his arguments, this essay too is clear, concise and very very persuasive. it is rather difficult to argue with his reasoning and conclusions. a version of the article is available here. some of the points made in the article come to mind when you compare the blogger and xanga communities. i've found that the xanga site makes it very easy to make regular posts compared to the blogger ui, however, and i've mentioned this before, there seem to be a lot more serious articles and discussions on blogspot. the overall user base for blogger too seems to be more mature and older compared to the xanga community.
