UPDate: I need to update this. As I've kicked it around a little, it's changed….. I'll get to that someday.
We live in the "The Age of the Internet", "The Information Age", "The Digital Age", or any of a dozen or so other really important sounding names. I don't think those titles are quite right. I have a feeling the Internet along with vast amounts of digitally stored information are with us effectively from this point forward. The historians will figure out what they want to call it and their name is gonna stick because none of us are likely to be around to argue.
Call it what you will. The more important thing is what we've seen: the seemingly exponential growth of technology in the guise of computers, the web, digital cameras, e-mail, and all the other forms that surround us. While a lot of these technologies have older roots, I think it's safe to say that for the average person the first exposure and perceived birth of all this has happened in barely more than the past decade.
So, what is this all about? I was lucky enough to be at least a little involved in a lot of those technologies early on and I still make my living working on the web. As a result, I get asked a lot of questions about a lot of technology related things. Part of my plan for this blog is to simply talk about some of the things I see and have seen. With luck it'll help answer some of those questions or get someone thinking about something new.
A lot of the focus is likely to be on software, computers, the web and photography. Of course, I will also post about things I find annoying, interesting, just plain cool, etc… And last, but not least, as mandated by the fact that I'm a tech guy, part of my plan for this blog involves world domination. But, we'll get to that later.
I hope you enjoy,
