I’ve decided that social media is probably not good for me—any of us, really. I’m still currently on Instagram, but I think my time there is also limited. I also have an account on Twitter, but I do not use it and find it mostly just a waste of time. I have not been on Facebook in a while; good riddance. However, I do enjoy the ''idea'' of social media if not the implementation. I also like the idea of a digital timeline of sorts that those who are close to me or have an interest can delve as deep as they’d like. {{More}}

Welcome to my journal.

I’ve decided that social media is probably not good for me—any of us, really. I’m still currently on Instagram, but I think my time there is also limited. I also have an account on Twitter, but I do not use it and find it mostly just a waste of time. I have not been on Facebook in a while; good riddance. However, I do enjoy the idea of social media if not the implementation. I also like the idea of a digital timeline of sorts that those who are close to me or have an interest can delve as deep as they’d like.


Therefore, welcome to my journal. Not a blog. Not a diary. It’s just something that I can record thoughts in on an almost daily basis. It’s about what’s on my mind and what’s not. Maybe Henry will get something out of it someday.

I write about whatever interests me at the time, but seem to come back to several subjects more than others, like: travel, specifically on my BMW R 1200 GS. I also have series of travels to England from 2009 and 2011. My Ph.D. is in literary studies, and I also write about sf, new media (and technoculture), education (especially hacking it, Digital Humanities, and Wikipedia) and writing. If I ever find the time, I may just complete my etextbook Writing.Digital. I often write about Norman Mailer.

Or just peruse my Essays on various subjects, or use the tabs above browse by category. Looking for something specific? Try the search box above.

I’m considering making index pages for the early years. Anyway, I will put them here as I add them and remove the navboxes below.
