So 2004 is already well under way and I realize I haven't posted anything in a while. I suppose that's the nature of blogs: in the beginning they're interesting, and one has all kinds of ideas and energy on what would be cool to post--but after a while things change, circumstances are different, the world (and the Internet) become scarier places, and one loses his fire. I suppose this is basically how everything on the web works: so many sites you stumble across sit like shipwrecks, testaments to a one-time potential, but aging, with "last updated on" dates over a year old, with broken links and other signs of general neglect, decay, and general disinterest. I suppose this is Darwinism at work: although millions of sites spring up, only a few survive.
So where am I going with this? In context to this site, if I go any longer without
posting something, it will laps into a similar fate. It's not that I haven't been doing
anything interesting, it's just been hard to motivate to post about it. And the longer I
go between posts, for some reason the harder it becomes. It's time for a facelift. It's
time for some new articles. I'm hoping this year will be better than last. Well, I won't
kid myself, there's no guarantee this ship will survive the next wave of storms, but it's
time to patch it up and again test the waters.
