他鄉復行役，駐馬別孤墳。 近淚無幹土，低空有斷雲。 對棋陪謝傅，把劍覓徐君。 唯見林花落，鶯啼送客聞。

Well here it is. The blog from he who hates blogs. The blog to end all blogs. Partially due to my good friend Y.C. Cheng, and partially due to my realization that static content is the least interesting, least useful aspect of the internet, I've jumped on the blogwagon, at least for a while.
There are two other aspects of blogosity that I find appealing. The first is having a permanent record of ideas, links, thoughts, memes, etc.—I know I burn through a lot of ideas, most of which are lost in the ether. Permanent searchable record = good.
The other aspect that's very appealing to me in a technical sense is the RSS aggregation stuff. I think that's a very cool idea. Similar to mailing lists, at least from my point of view, but finer-grained, lower entry/exit barriers and higher posting barriers, which I hope will be the right combination to reduce the traditional mailing list issues. We shall see.
Anyways, that's enough rationalization. If I can stay away from the "the type of peanut butter that I ate today" kind of entries, which are the source of most of my anti-blogness, I'll consider this experiment a success.
We'll see how things go.
