I will try to write better. I will try to provide more potentially useful information. I will do more analysis before writing off-the-cuff. I will try not to neglect this blog even if no one is reading it — and if someone is actually reading it, why? It's not as though I'm saying anything that hasn't already been said in so many ways, and said better.
I promised myself that I wouldn't write my thoughts down unless I really wanted to leave behind something of myself that I wanted people to remember me by, and for a time I ended up posting to Usenet (those of you who've been on the internet since before the web was even invented, you can find some of my old posts by searching Google Groups).
