I started blogging in 2004, but that first blog was hacked in 2006 and all the posts deleted. I don’t know how many posts I had, but somebody thought it would be fun to delete them all, and they did. I started this blog in 2006, and this is post 1001. I had no idea when I started that I’d stick with it for this long, but looking back it has been worthwhile for me as a place to organize my ideas about a variety of topics. It’s a window into what I’m thinking at that time. If no one ever read it, it would still be worth it for me to write. But a lot of people have read it, and to them I say thank you.
Looking forward to the next thousand posts, I want to thank you for your attention. In a world full of things competing for it, it isn’t lost on me how valuable your attention is.
