K. I have seen the texts and emails. Got it. It is thought that a blog is about posting. Got that too. But this isn't a "blog", it was started several years before that ugly term went viral. This is a web site, made from the ground up by me to test out how a web site is made from the ground up. A "blog" [ick and ewww] is a tool that people who don't know how to code and script use to promote themselves. Some are great, many are vanity plates.
And don't get me started on Facebook.
I don't want this to be a vanity plate.
I put stuff here that I need to remember so I can go back and find it when I forget. Though sometimes when the whiskey hits me just right I guess I do use this as a place to vent or pontificate, there's no need to remember my foibles.
But if you really truly use this to figure out where I am (which makes me feel rather odd) then I guess I am honored... and feeling odd.
So here's the reason it's been nearly a year since anything has gone up here: I'm busy working on what the last post eluded to. Putting a bit of my money and a whole heck of a lot of my time and effort into a project that I think is as good a thing as any to help make Tomorrowland - the concept of a place that is a little better than what's around us at the moment - get closer.
My choice was helping The Space Studies Institute (www.ssi.org). It has been completely mind blowing. I had some idea of what this organization was but I thought it was a big "WAS" and I was wrong. Because SSI doesn't lobby and isn't into the scare tactics of some other groups out there it seemed to be a dead thing.
It is not.
It just has a different tack, because it truly has a different purpose.
Go take a look. Look deep.
That's where I've been.
