This personal blog is my external brain. Anything I need to remember goes here. Over the years as social media made it really easy to post there, I have come to neglect my external brain. That explains why I am no longer any good at remembering anything (not that I am getting older). It also explains why I went to the effort of digging up my posts from Friendster, LiveJournal, MovableType, Pitas, Vox, and Xanga. I feel better having everything in one place, though I have clones of posts going to Posterous and WordPress.com. Tumblr and Facebook, you are next.
I have kept a blog since October 14, 2000. My first real staff position started a few months earlier. Over time I have gotten less openly personal in my blogging and more geek and work related. It is not like I have much of a love life?
I am a Technology Strategist for the University System of Georgia. That means I proactively work on our IT challenges. Lean forward. My areas include GeorgiaVIEW, INGRESS, Georgia Archives, and others. See my Vizualize.Me for details on my work.
