Each time I have made a change to my site I wondered how to handle updates; some snippet of recent news, projects I’m working on, and so forth. That would soon lead to questions of how to archive the older information as well as to make it somewhat accessible for later reference.
Eventually these things called weblogs started to appear; they seemed the instrument of choice for amateur journalists, as well as for trendy hipsters who could sip their lattÃ©s and record their every passing mood (usually “angsty”). More to the point, they provided ready solutions to most of the above questions. While I felt a need to avoid falling victim to the herd mentality, I suppose it was only a matter of time before I put up my own.
So, here I am. I hope to collect a few of the more entertaining rumors, as well as the occasional essay. Topics should cover technology in education, geopolitics, some market issues, and the culture wars of science and religion.
I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.
