A day or two ago, Janice informed us that I am the holder of Hijack™ (a non-profit company, I assure you). Yesterday, Jim posted a comment on my thread. I followed this up by quoting him and responded in his thread. I've seen other evidence of our various blogs losing coherence (to the innocent "dropping in wherever" folks) because some of us (okay, mostly me) are incapable of sticking strictly to the thread we're commenting on without referring to one or more of the threads in other C.F. (Collaborating Founders') blogs. (I introduced the concept of C.F.'s yesterday in the comments on my "Yeah, But You Can't Beat the Fringe Benefits" post. The basic concept is that you all as the readers in my first week of blogging are Collaborating Founders in setting the tone here.)
I propose that on Monday, January 28th, we hold the first International Hijack™ Day. We have a week to figure out exactly how it works, but the basics are as follows:
-Each of us post something that invites audience participation.
-Each response should link you to one of the other C.F.'s blogs.
-The response should not be in the blog you're responding to and it shouldn't be in your own blog; it should be in a third blog.
-Confusing? Yes! That's the point.
Like I said, we have a week to figure out the particulars, but anyone who thinks this is a good idea should say so in the comments. Ideas for the rules will be most welcome. Feel free to expand on (or Hijack™) the idea and take it in a direction I haven't thought of.
I'm going to be running around in the cold all day and won't be able to play more until I get home this evening. I look forward to seeing what lunacy the rest of you can propose.
Update: In the spirit of the proposed International Hijack™ Day, you should also feel free to talk about it in each others' blogs...just sayin'.
