Returning from OSCON ’14, I felt the need to start a personal web presence. The bog standard place in the maelstrom to post thoughts, snippets, ideas, questions, whathaveyou.
I’m not one for social media. I don’t Tweet, I don’t have a Facebook, I do use Google+ to share photos and links with a small group of friends and you can find me on Github.
I do have lots of little notebooks filled with scribblings and thoughts. Mainly Field Notes brand now, they are most excellent things. I probably spend as much time obsessing over notebooks and pens as most people do about their blogging platform and Twitter workflow.
There are things in the notebooks that I want to share, to get comments on, to put out in the wider world than The Stack. Thoughts that started as conversations at OSCON. Thoughts that happened on a train in Hungary. I do write articles for work, but these aren’t necessarily work related, nor articles. And when the platform doesn’t fit, re-invent it!
