Yes, well, the world may not need yet another blog, but I do. There are certain things I want to place on the web that don’t fit in at, my original site. is primarily for conceptual or thought-experiment stuff, and (believe it or not) I do actual practical things from time to time.

It’s currently my intention to use this blog as an index or signboard to other things rather than make it the main source of content. For example, if I document a successful technology experiment, I’ll do a big write-up about it somewhere, then post a summary and a link here in the blog, rather than do the whole write-up as a blog entry. More generally, I’ll post things in the blog that I don’t expect to be of any particular long-term significance, but which are news at the time. Durable information will be posted elsewhere.

Well, that’s more than enough rambling about the blog itself. Let’s see what happens next.
