Hello World

By Brian | May 8, 2005 | Share on Facebook

OK, folks – here goes. The rather inauspicious beginnings of the 9,727,428th web log on the planet (this according to Technorati, of course). Welcome to I Should Be Sleeping.

There will be much more to say later, but for now, let’s start with this:

My inspirations are Jeff Porten, who recently started his own blog and has been pretty good about updating it, John Scalzi, who’s blog I read & comment on frequently, suggesting I do have time for this kind of thing, James Lileks, who posts something worth reading just about every single night, Glenn Reynolds, who basically started the whole thing, and to a lesser extent, others (see the Blog Roll at the left).

My goals are vague, yet lofty. Basically, this will be my place to weigh in on things in my world. If it mirrors my e-mail habits (which I believe it will) you’ll see a lot of technology talk here, as well as some politics, some sports, and anything else that catches my fancy. Hopefully, others find it interesting and turn it into a discussion, and we’ll all be better off in the end. If not, well then heck – at least I figured out how to create a blog…

    Welcome to the fold, my friend. It’s just like smoking or heroin, you can give it up at any time.

    Prediction: this is the only time in my life I will be listed ahead of John Scalzi.

    I note that I’m now in Technorati thanks to your blogroll. Never did understand that place, so if you could elucidate in a future post, much appreciated.

    Vague, yet lofty. Pardon me while I steal that….
