soft-launching www.theodigital.com

Well, I'm soft-launching my new blog here on Christmas Eve (of all times), although it's not really new.  We know that I've been blogging for years over at http://chrisridgeway.blogspot.com.  It's had several names (blog names always feel somewhat dispensable), including "To Have Mine Match" and most recently "Jesus Under Plastic."  This time, it felt right to move to a whole new platform—so I've got my own Wordpress 2.9 install all spiffed up now and my own new domain:   www.theodigital.com. My domain www.chrisridgeway.net will direct here soon, and I still plan to keep personal news and family and friends with me.  But  because I've spent the last 1.5 years focused on the intersection of digital media ecology and theology, I didn't want to stop when the degree did.  This name gives me a space to think and do theology as a digital native, and simultaneously try to do that in the missional conversation.

There's still a lot of stuff not right on here (Feedburner isn't working properly, tags aren't correctly implemented, I have some introduction pages that I need to write, and I'm not too excited about the webcam pic on the left).  But this is good enough for now.

Also, Merry Christmas.  :)
