This is where I write. This is my Cave.
If you’ve never been here before, DON’T SKIP THIS is a handy introduction to this place. There is over 10 years of content hiding around here and some of it remains relevant.
I’ve been writing here since April of 2002. I tend to write two significant pieces a month, but with the most recent version of the site, I’ve created Excerpts, which are shorter posts that hopefully don’t turn this place into a linkblog.
If you find my writing useful, tell me about it. If you want to take a step further, I suggest you check out my Amazon wish list. I think rewarding good writing with more good writing keeps the planet karmically aligned.
Opinions. The opinions expressed on this website are entirely my own. I never speak for my employer, my friends, my dog, or you. In many of my articles, I often refer to specific people as a means of telling the story… making a point. These people do not exist – I am not writing about you – they are fabrications that are specifically constructed to make a point. There are traits, quirks, or situations involving co-workers and friends that I borrow to construct the personas in my stories, but these small slices of personality do not a person make.
I go out of my way to never borrow traits, ideas, or personalities from my current set of co-workers and leaders without their express consent. That would be bad form.
Gender. I flip-flip using he and she throughout posts. I wish there was a useful genderless pronoun.
Comments. Much to the chagrin of a lot of friends, I still have comments on this weblog. My comment policy is simple:
Post whatever you like. I won’t edit content or attribution of any comment. However, I’ll delete whatever comment I like.
I don’t delete comments willy nilly. If something is deleted, it’s off-topic, adds no value, and/or involves a personal attack.
