It is an experiment in self-expression, cultural critique, and the use of social software. I, for one, do not expect that I have anything more important to say than most others. But, I have been told several times lately by people whom I respect that I need to say some of the things I have said to them to a wider audience. This is one attempt to do so.
Topics of conversation will probably include librarianship and library education; education in general; HTML and CSS; song lyrics, particularly their influence on my life; technology; my search for the ‘good life’; the feeling of being betrayed by my country; pop culture; and whatever else I happen to find disturbing, enlightening, intriguing, or just plain entertaining.
I am very ambivalent about this project for several reasons. I do not have a real focus; I know that I won’t be necessarily blogging that frequently; and I think this whole process is quite narcissistic. But, since I have come to believe that dialogue is the important thing, I must try.
