I noticed I’ve been typing these random thoughts for 6 years.
I wonder, why do I bother doing this? Why!? The interesting answer is, I don’t know why. I never really think about that. I just see my MS Word document and find a topic thought, I then finish up one of those dozens of ideas that I’ve noted/started over time. These ideas come about when I’m out in the real world and I see something interesting and I think “blog thought.” That’s exactly what happened with the Homeless Tech Bro.
Do I plop these posts on the interweb because I’m a “writer”-NO. Are they because I’m a person who shares—No. Are they because I’m a thinker, and an odd-ball, yep. I think that’s exactly the reason. Plus they gave me something interesting to do and learn technology-wise.
So 6 years now. In comparison, that is like jr high+high school. Even stranger, that is like undergrad + grad school (assuming I was on a quick 4yr plan for undergrad). That is a large chunk of time for something unnecessary.
Back to learning technology; I was talking with my wife the other day about when I created a webpage and put our dog on the internet, in 1996! I figured, he (the dog) was very into himself and should have a worldwide web presence. That was long before cat videos degraded worldwide productivity.
Hmmm, am I the new version of our dog, sitting on the internet for no reason No, not exactly. I guess, I just figure that some piece of my random thoughts may give someone else something (different) to think about.
