Long, boring pages on websites explaining what will or will not be found on said websites are about as exciting as actors laying pipe. However, it does seem like a bit of context and identity is in order. So, for that reason, this blog post is here to serve that purpose and then fade into the background, unless it needs to be called back into action.
Way back in the truly wild Internet, the first version of my website debuted as many did: being an anarchistic reflection of one’s personality and interests in a way only HTML 3.2 can express.
The world was your oyster. Or possibly the sky was your oyster. Or the sky was the limit. Regardless, there were limitless oysters, which just goes to show, as Noël Coward pointed out, you can have too much of a good thing.
So back to the Internet, which embodies “too much of a good thing” in ways that may well have astonished and delighted Coward.
A couple decades in, the web, while still undeniably rambunctious in some corners, is more purpose-driven… and this website is no different. Its main goal is to be an outlet for writing that doesn’t make sense to put on the Team J blog, may be more general than something I post on my Facebook page, and be more lengthy than what I tweet.
I will certainly mention Team J projects here — especially ones where I’ve written the script. Pretty much all my casting articles will be posted there on the Team J blog. However, for writing outside Team J, musings about intriguing articles and tech trends, and ever-wonky pieces on project management, you’re in the right place.
And hopefully, I’ll avoid Nakamuras.
