Hello! Here's what this is (and isn't.)

This all started when I stumbled on Ghost via Jeff Atwood's Coding Horror, and realized this piece of software likely addresses everything that I disliked about WordPress back in the day. It's modern, minimal, and actively encourages customization. So - I spun up a new server (glad Linode is still humming along!) and started tinkering again mostly for the sake of tinkering, which really does wonders for the brain.

But I digress.

Here's what I plan to do here: share things that I think other people with my interests will care to read about, e.g., consumer hardware reviews, commentary on some news[1], and even photography. I promise to be as concise as possible, which will end up being somewhere between the length of a tweet and John Siracusa's famously long OS X reviews. Let's just start calling this medium-form.

There won't be a regular cadence of posts, because I'd rather not share anything than publish filler content. I will never do sponsored posts, but I may use affiliate links in product/service reviews.

And that's it!

By the way, if you find yourself in Honolulu, get some poke from Ono. It doesn't get any better than this.
