The "who are my people?" question is a hard one.

Call me crazy, but just yesterday, I was mulling this idea ... "Do The Big Nimh Test!". Kind of a spin-off from my recent disjointed rambling on the whatwasit thread and your, dlowan's and little k's responses to it (see, it's not that I forgot or anything, just cause I neglected to respond..). The idea would be to create a kind of survey, with a list of opposites. Like, "punk ... hippie", "winner ... loser", "past ... future", "gentle ... precise", "Buda ... Pest". And the user has to just tick each set off, ticking the box for one of the two words, totally instinctually, without thinking. And at the end you would get "Your Personal NIMH Score!"

Yes, I think of weird **** sometimes. Perhaps its boredom.

Course, it would involve creating a set of representative yet random-seeming opposite values like that, somehow make a program or script calculate out the values (never done that), formulate the results texts (all nice, of course, it'd be a joke not a judgement, so you would get, say, either the "soul mate" or the "opposites attract" result), make a webpage for it ...

Yeah, not gonna happen, probly. (ambition ... procrastination)

I've been putting in stuff that I'd love to see people talking about -- like, "Oooh, you like Jhumpa Lahiri?! Do you think she's a better short-story writer or novelist?" or whatever.

I actually read a collection of short stories of hers, thought they were very beautiful / good. Been a while and the book is back in Holland, so dont know what it was called. Even gifted a copy to me dad I think.

"Interpreter of Maladies" is probably the book you are referring to -- blew me away. Love her writing, the insight and subtlety.

"The Namesake" is her recent-ish novel, also fantastic (in a different way...)

Yes, that the one... I read it in '99. I remember, cause I wanted to copy one of the stories and send it to my then-friend K., a Polish-American girl. It was of exile ... the Indian wife of a professor, out on the roundabout of a campus? A rare shop where you could get products from home, the sheer meaning of that? Perhaps I've mixed up two stories, fudged up things ... just remember it struck me as a quiet story that spoke strongly.

@sozobe,
Hadn't seen this before. Here's some suggestions if you really want to get search traffic to your threads here.

1) Use good titles with keywords. The title is pretty much all that matters in the posting for the search traffic, if it's not in the title it'll have to be very rare online for search engines to redirect someone here because they'll assume pages with relevant titles are more likely to be about that topic.

2) Use tags. For example I like poker and I like psychology and neither had good coverage here, so I've been making topics about them and joining them to other ones. Eventually some will catch on and the topic diversity will grow.

3) Use very specific keywords. Able2know isn't out there competing to sell things so we aren't going to rank for short and popular keywords like "computers" but for something more specific "Dell laptop RAM problems" it's more likely.

It makes a big difference, many of the top topics on the site (in terms of views) I made that way through simply using descriptive titles with the keywords I thought would be searched for. Some of them take off, and others don't but by making the title relevant to the subject you give yourself much better chances with little effort.
