Why?

Filed under: Uncategorized — anewc2 @ 20:15

Why a blog? I follow the news, sometimes I have thoughts about it, sometimes I just want to save something, and have all these somethings findable from one place. Sometimes I want to be educated about issues. Somehow a bookmarking service with tags just doesn’t seem like enough.

There are certain subjects that interest me:

Economic issues:

  • The financial markets generally
  • The series of credit crises we seem to be having since last August: how, and what next
  • Environmental questions — peak oil? global warming?
  • Capitalism and its discontents

Politics:

  • I’m not so much interested in horse-race type coverage, but I want to know what the candidates’ positions are
  • Who can and cannot be trusted when they talk
  • Who’s policies are good, or evil

Web design, and programming generally

  • tools
  • best practices
  • exemplars

Other stuff as it comes up.

Why now? Because Flock makes it easy.
