Hello, world. This is my new blog that I plan to post to semi-regularly.
But I must warn you, chances are this blog is not for you as I am creating
it for nearly all selfish reasons. It is a place to sort out my thoughts,
scratch an itch, record important happenings, and to improve my communication
skills. Topics will range from the highly technical (C++, Objective-C,
ruby, electronics, physics) to the totally mundane.
I decided to hack this thing together using a static site generator called
nanoc and host it using Amazon S3. As you can see, it is really basic at the moment, and hopefully that will improve over time.
Right now I am enjoying the technical aspects of putting it together
as much as I am writing it.
Actual entries using Markdown for the
most part. Back in the 90s a very-wise colleague told me that the only file format
that lasts is plain old, human-readable text. It is a sentiment that I hear echoed again
and again. Markdown strikes a deft balance between the needs of formatting and
I will have a lot to say about later on.
