All Things Internetâ„¢ since 1999


Welcome to the New Byte.org!

Hello interloper!

I started blogging more than 10 years ago. Someday, I’ll tell the whole story, but the synopsis is that I first started posting status updates to a web page using handcrafted HTML sometime in 1999. At some point, I moved to UserLand Radio, then MovableType and then Blogware. I was on Blogware *forever* and recently, I’ve moved everything to WordPress, as you can see.

I’ve decided to post fairly regularly about stuff that interests me. Nothing too heavy, just riff-raff that I need to get out of my head. I love your comments, so please be sure to take a load of on me anytime you want.




Getting back in the saddle…

I’ve decided to start blogging again. Its a big step for me. When I first started blogging, I just jumped in – completely unconscious of the commitment I was making. Over time, my blog sputtered, and then completely failed.

This time, I’ve promised myself, it will be different. This time I’ll be blogging with forethought.

I’ve decided to take the time that I’ve been wasting on Twitter and Facebook and pour that effort into longer, less frequent posts that will end up here. I’ll still use Facebook and Twitter to some degree, but I’ll be spending a lot less time keeping them updated.

There are still quite a few more things to do before I can call this a blog. Not only do a I need a few more posts, but I’d also like to tweak the settings a bit more, get used to the plugins that I’ve configured and make a final decision about the theme I’ll be using. I’d also like to import my older content, but that might take some additional effort.

So until I’ve settled in, please do mind your step. I’ll work on making this as comfortable as possible for everyone.
