Wow. A blog.

The first thing that strikes me, is that this must be the most narcissistic form of computer interaction since, well, ever. Back in the early 90's there were already public mailing lists floating around to join, and a lot of people would join a mailing list on, say, Indiana University basketball, and immediately send out a sixty line email on their life. As if we cared. We were only worried about Alan Henderson's knee.

But apparently enough people did, and do, that reading about someone else's life has become the big internet thing. It seems a lot like Reality TV, except with worse editing.

On the other hand, the only way to have something really excellent is to take the chance on having something really lousy. So here I am.

Now what?
