Movable Type

I’m also realizing that I’m growing past the abilities of Movable Type. I want to be able to, easily, annotate my posts with arbitrary RDF, and integrate that into my recent work on annotating my photos.

I could hack MT all to hell and get what I need but, in the end, it would be a losing battle both because I would soon fall behind releases of MT, and I would have to work around functionality and structure in MT that I don’t necessarily want or need.

Despite the amount of time required, I’ve been thinking about what it would take to implement something that would fit my needs. Dunstan’s weblog work is always a refreshing and inspiring thing to watch, and his features are always thoughtful. Of course, MT 3.0 might solve a lot of my problems, but there’s no way to tell at the moment, and the lack of RDF support is quickly becoming more than I want to put up with.
