I have been too distracted to get a weblog. My friends Meg Grant and Mike Hambleton told me to start one back in the fall of 2000 — believe it or not — but I just couldn’t see the point. Then, I got too busy with work.
After my wife Heather chastized me for being such a technical fuddy-duddy — as well as not linking to her site (heatherhopkins.wordpress.com) I decided to take fast action. As well as secure the third-level domain. And to actually be a part of what Mike Wesch and Yochai Benkler talk about (and, um, I write about…).
So here I am. Mainly to see just how easy it is to set up. Creating this took under four minutes. Perhaps this Internet-y thing isn’t just a fad after all.
