From the Blog

I’ve kinda realized that one of the largest blights on the Internet, which, oddly, was one of the reasons the Interweb was based on (new communications methods), is the rise of social media. I could spend all day listing networks and tools that folks choose to use to either broadcast or focus their message, frustrations, sales, news, or just plain thoughts. For me, it’s a love hate relationship (as it is for a few others I know). I’ve left various services multiple times for multiple reasons. The most recent was today, and the target of my angst is Facebook. It’s openness is one of the greatest strengths and biggest problems – the lack of true granularity of privacy, but still wanting to easily share information outward.

For me, I’m going to leave what I have right now for a while… sadly it hurts the capability of folks who I like to interact with from keeping in touch, but it also limits (quite severely) those who semi-anonymously voice their points of view on topics and thoughts. So I retreat to a blog, here, where I have control (to some extent) and can spend time and focus my message and refine how I want to present things.

Hopefully, I can use this break to refocus my life after a number of momentous things that have occurred in my life in the past 18 months or so, and get myself invigorated back on things that interested and supported me mentally and emotionally previously.

Maybe things will get better… maybe they won’t… but I’m setting the direction, I’m determining the velocity, and choosing which vehicle I want to travel in.

Well, I’m going to make like, the umpteenth attempt to blog regularly now. I think things have calmed down enough to consider doing this. I hope to do a mix of what I usually do on Facebook and the like and bring it over here. I also hope to be able to categorize and produce some focus areas, and maybe bring back some old projects and stuff I worked on… sort of a little history… and maybe some folks can learn from. Also, it’d be nice if I don’t have to remember everything, so keeping this in some sort of place for reference is a good idea too. We’ll see what happens, so let’s rock.

That is so lame… however, if you have talked to me in the past year… things have changed significantly in my life… so I figure I’d restart this blog and start getting my life in order and share with folks who care to read, what’s been going on in my life. I’m deciding what to possibly transfer from the old site, as well as from some other places where I was posting… some stuff is incredibly personal, other content maybe not so much. So, we’ll see. Stay Tuned.
