Weblog Chronology

First Seth Godin wondered if blogs are backwards, which Joi Ito commented on. Sebastian from Zonageek then proposed (note – following link is in Spanish) that when looking at a date view on a blog it should go in forward order but otherwise in reverse. I thought that was an interesting notion, so I whipped up a Blosxom plugin to do just that. It’s running on this blog right now. God love Blosxom, this plugin is really and truly 7 lines of actual code, plus a little bit of other framework stuff to make it run.

Later today, as a break from preparing to move, I’ll make it available for download and register it on the Blosxom plugin site. I’m calling it sort_days_forward right now, which is kind of cumbersome. Anyone have a better suggestion?
