… and this is my Web site, where I post my thoughts just for you.
Each post here is developed by me just for you over a period of several years. After my scribe is done transcribing I have my in-house team of Oxford dons review it thoroughly for accuracy, relevance, and historical consistency. Finally, I hand it off to my team of comedians to polish the jokes and ensure maximum possible humor.
Each post is then presented to a test panel where its enjoyment rating is measured and tested carefully for your personality type. If the enjoyment rating falls below 25.3 it is sent back to the team for improvement. They are denied food or drink or sunlight until it meets the exacting quality standards that I know you expect.
Finally, each post is bathed in distilled water from the Arctic and polished with cashmere silk until it shines as brightly as our perfect reference diamond. Then, and only then is the post carefully wrapped in the finest linens and transported it across the Internet for your reading pleasure.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the posts.

I have a theory that buzzwords are usually helpful in general, in that they usher in new concepts before they end up as meaningless marketing fluff–and, eventually, punchlines. I think this is in the process of happening right now with the term “big data”, just like it did with “Web 2.0″ a few years back. […]
The Web vs. native app from an app store debate has been raging lately. It’s nice to see an old-fashioned blog discussion, makes me nostalgic. So I just read an interesting post by Robert Scoble on the topic, and I have 3 quick reactions to it: The Web has one distinct advantage: an address that […]
