I’m finally fulfilling my vanity promise to myself and dipping my stumpy toes into the blogosphere. I guess its expected that I would make some sort of grandiose egotistical pronouncement about how this blog, and only this one, is going to change everything for me, for you, for everyone. I ‘spose that’s possible, but not likely. Instead, let me ask you for a few favors. Post in lots of languages other than English. Make comments. Please try and be polite and clever at the same time. Don’t be afraid to disagree with me or other commenters. I’m going to post about a lot of different topics. As I learn more, I hope to be able to sort out the posts into easily navigable categories. The tentative categories include technology policy, telecommunications law, Seattle politics and its endemic corruption, food and wine of course, travel observations, and spiritual and health topics. I hope its interesting, and I’ll learn a lot in the process of reaching out and learning to entertain and inform.
