Hello World

OK, here is my obligatory Hello World post on write.as. Why am I here? Will this platform be any different from Blogger, or Wordpress, or Squarespace – all places that I’ve created blogs and never really used? Sometimes switching things up can spur me to lasting action. Lots of times it’s just “classic wanking”. I do believe that publishing every day can lead to good things (see Austin Kleon or Seth Godin). And, even more appealing, that a well-used blog can serve as a public notebook (blog.laurel.world) or a memex (Cory Doctorow). So, I’ll give it a go and see where it leads.
