Hello world!

by Andy

So why in the age of microblogging, am I creating a blog? Aren’t those so passé these days? Well maybe, but I believe there is still a lot of life left in the long form. One hundred and forty characters is great for a witty observation or quick retort, but to build a cogent argument and defend it, the larger medium is necessary.

So I going to use this blog to develop larger ideas, to do a little bit of self-promotion, and to give back to the development community. I have read countless articles in the quest of solving some problem, but I have never had the capability of returning the favor until now. It is unlikely that I’ll be blogging on some of the technology I used to use because I have now moved on to different pastures, but there will still plenty to talk about, and I have a few new tricks up my sleeve. The tech industry is nothing if not constantly changing. I think the military has the term “target rich environment”.

So thank-you for popping in, and I hope you return soon.
