an introduction

“About this blog” pages have limited use. They serve either to state the obvious about a blog that has a narrow or focused purpose, or to distill the essence of the author into one easily consumable capsule of information. The former makes the “About” page redundant, while the latter entirely obviates the need for a blog. Neither of these is appropriate or suitable for whatever this evolves into– I dislike using the word “blog” and I will not have it turn into yet another disposable lint-trap for outdated memes that were funny for five minutes.

Who I am is reflected in what I write.

With this in mind, this page can also serve as a central location for widgets, geegaws, dingbats, gimcracks and doodads that are useful, but don’t have any particular place in the layout or content.
