Hello World

I threw this site together because I write about a lot of different things and want to place to put them. There’s really two motivations:

  • Goal #1: stay motivated to write. If I just write in in a notebook, I don’t get the feeling of finishing anything. All the stuff in my notebook is “in progress”. I need a way to say “I’m done”. Even if I come back to edit it later, there is a psychological shift that you make when something physically moves from in progress to done. I want to take advantage of that.
  • Goal #2: find like-minded people. If I don’t put stuff out there, I won’t get any feedback, I won’t be able to take advantage of the network effects of knowledge systems. This is something I believe in, so I need to practice what I preach and start writing in a public place where that can happen.

So with that said… Hello world!
