Wow, I almost forgot. I started this blog four years ago today. The blog is directly responsible for my last two jobs, led me to meet too many people to name individually who I know consider close friends, resulted in me meeting one presidential candidate, hosting a hopefully future presidential candidate in my family room, and has made me smarter, more curious, and more aware of just how much I don’t know.
Between my feed stats and my server logs, it appears that a little over 1000 people per day view the stuff I write. That’s more than a bit overwhelming when I think about it, and makes me grateful for the feedback, corrections, input and advice you’ve all provided over the years. Dan Gillmor often talks about how his readers are smarter than he is, and that’s surely the case here as well. Thanks for sharing your time with me, and for giving me a platform to speak from; I’ve wandered quite a bit over the last few years and will no doubt continue to float between technology, politics, law, business, and who knows what else. Thanks for sticking with me.
