Why blog? There are millions of blogs, millions of voices around the world that come and go. I’m not an academic, so I don’t have an incentive connected with my employment to share my experience with anyone. There is no specific purpose for it. I don’t hope to achieve anything. No fame or fortune or social purpose to be advanced.
My trade for the past 35 years has been technical writing. That’s pretty dry stuff, but I am fascinated by machines—physical machines, or information automata, or business processes. But now my interest is fading, and I need something else to write about.
