Squidoo: Lens on Lens

Filed under: Squidoo — Bricoleur @ 8:07 pm

This lens is quite different than my other lenses:
it is really a personal journal, rather than a traditional Squidoo Lens.
It contains some personal views on Lens design, construction and promotion.
I am using it to record some of the design criteria I have tried, used or abandoned in attempts in the very early beta stages of Squidoo. Hence the title “Lens on Lens.”

Some Ideas are likely to have wide spread applicability (indeed some that I used very early on were discoverd by others independently … for example use of internal links to specific modules within a lens) while other (especially those being used in the Massive lenses I have developed (which in some ways seem to be the antithesis of the Squidoo concept) may not prove viable in the end….

If you are considering building your own lens, it may be useful to follow some of the pointers to other resources… even if you don’t choose to use any of my techniques, there is a lot to be learned from the resources I point to.
