Anyone who knows me knows I hate blogs. So, what the fuck am I doing, starting one up?
Well, I’ve come to realise that there’s a point to blogs, too. I still hate almost all of them. I don’t want to know about your relationships, or what you ate for dinner last night. And don’t expect me to meet you for drinks because you blogged where you were going.
But they are a good place for doing some things. For example, where would I put my brief article on primes and MD5 collisions if not in a blog? (You’ll see from the date I’ve flirted with this idea before). They’re also a kind of person-centric mailing list – only you don’t have to subscribe to them and they stay available forever. Perhaps they’re good for other things, but I can’t think of any right now. Let me know!
Anyway, consider this an experiment. The next few posts are probably going to be a little odd, because they’ll be about stuff I should’ve been blogging at the time, but, well, I didn’t have a blog. Will I keep it up? Who knows. Watch this space.
