If you’ve been visiting this blog once in a while, wondering whether there’ll be any more updates, then this will likely be a bitter-sweet announcement.
First, I’d like to apologize for not updating the blog in such a long time. I’ve been rather busy with life and, after having taken some time to think about my priorities, it turns out that blogging, as fun as it is, comes up quite low on the “to do with my life” list, especially when the list goes something like “God, family, business, then everything else.” (I’m sure you can guess where blogging falls in this case.) The sad truth is that, for a while at least, a monthly update to this blog will be about the norm. I’d love to do more, but there are other, more pressing matters to attend to at the moment. (Never mistake the “urgent” for the “important.”)
If you’re extremely disappointed, I’m quite sorry. Really, I’d rather be writing this and entertaining folks than writing technical specs, but bills gotta get paid, and — more importantly — I’ve got a growing business to run. Even more importantly, the wife isn’t too happy when I just feed her and water her. She also needs to be talked to on a regular basis and taken out of the house once in a while. (Sheesh! Women…) That alone takes up a good chunk of my time, but then there’s the God factor. I’ll be the first to say, I’m not yet the model Christian I should be. In fact, there are times when I wonder whether that is something I could ever be. Still, mistakes aside, I do my best, even if my best is sometimes nothing more than an apology and a request for spare luck.
At any rate, it’s 12:10 am. I just got here from Tampa. And I need to hit the sack (but not before reading a few pages from my bible, and How to Win Friends and Influence People, or HTWF/IP for you tech types).
So, without further ado, I’ll see y’all later. Probably in about a month.
For some interesting reading, check out an interview I had the honor of doing with Simon White of Catalysoft.com, where we talk a little bit about my personal history, and the p2p revolution. Great reading, since Simon knows how to ask seriously good questions.
I’ll be adding a quip or quote once in a while, but as for substantial, thought-provoking content, that will be a monthly (or so) event.
