Greetings. I'll admit it right at the start -- I'm not entirely convinced that blogs are necessarily a "great idea" in the scheme of the Net. Too often they seem like trees falling in the forest with nobody to hear them, and their "faddish" aspect of the moment is another turn-off.

However... We'll give it the old college try and see how things work out. Obviously this blog isn't very fancy right now, and it's likely to stay rather utilitarian in design. How often I'll actually be updating it is also utterly unknown right now.

By the way, Joi Ito urged me to start this thing, so if it doesn't work out at least there is someone else to blame along with me!

And away we go...
