Getting started


The photo on the left seems like a nice way to start. It was created using a zany method that produces some beautiful results.



I'm sure someone's written a really good piece on why blogs have become so popular (if you know of one, please put a link to it in a comment). It seems to me there are some interesting historical points (in terms of the printing press, Marshall McLuhan, etc.) as well as sociological, political, even spiritual aspects.

My reasons for having a blog are as follows: 1) It's a very convenient way for me to keep an organized log of interesting stuff that will build up over time into a kind of database; 2) Someone else might find my stuff useful, informative, or entertaining; and of course 3) It's fun and creative.

Now, here's an interesting blog.

Such a propitious beginning: slagging Microsoft and corroborating Pythagorus. Noble all round.

Welcome to blogdom. Your third reason is as much as anyone needs, but I wish you well with the first two as well.
