Thought Blog

Prefatory Matters

I’ve decided to start blogging again.

I’ve fallen into the busy trap for years, using my work as an excuse not to maintain a blog. What I’ve come to realize, though, is that no matter how busy I get, I still end up writing essay-like content in other, more transient venues.

I started to ask myself which I’d rather be looking at in twenty years: a collection of my writing reflecting my thinking over the years (as woefully na├»ve as it will inevitably seem in retrospect) or a high karma score on Hacker News and an oeuvre of half-baked comments strewn all over the Internet. Well, I’m choosing the former; those half-baked comments might as well be half-baked blog posts instead.
