It’s been a while. Finding time to blog is tough these days, and it’s so easy to be swept up in sites like Facebook, where all your friends are, or Google Plus, which offer easy access to lots of other posts and readers.
I’ve seen the light, though. Facebook does so much analysis on users for so little in return, and limits your network size, etc. When I last had a blog, I had complex, interesting discussions with people from all over the world, regularly. For all my time on Facebook, I’ve said hi to a few friends, arranged a few outings, checked out a bunch of photos… but the whole experience has been much more shallow. Granted, Google Plus is better at that sort of open discussion. But then there are the privacy issues. It’s so hard to track what google plus is sharing, and what it’s not. And it’s closed. There isn’t even an API to post to google plus, that I know of. You’d think they’d welcome the content.
In short, I missed the real world-wide web, where people network, communicate, share ideas, and build things together. So. A new beginning.
In this blog, I’ll be discussing software engineering projects, mainly in Python, possibly in Rust and a few other modern, interesting languages. I might get into other projects, like fixing up the new house, garden, sheds, etc. I might get into ethics, philosophy, and stuff like that, too. I’ll keep those all neatly categorised though, so people can subscribe to the coding stuff, without listening to me harp on about ethics. Or vice versa.
