What is a "blog" to me, and why have I decided to create one? What technologies enable this blog?
For several years, I have tried to maintain a "brain" of heirarchial information for my personal notes. Frankly, that experiment failed. There was too much of a barier to entry for throwing information into the "brain", because the heirarchy required too much thought about where the information should go.
That said, this "blog" has roughly the same purpose---organizing my personal notes. Why do I share my blog publicly? Honestly, the biggest reason is that privacy is a hassle, and by sharing these pages publicly I personally will be able to access them as easily as possible. Privacy is hard, and not worth doing poorly. I see no reason for this information to be private, so I choose to make it public.
