Thank you Mike for inviting me to join you. I am excited!

Well, here goes. My first real foray into blogging. I am not a major reader of blogs, although I frequent a handful. I have always been a bit hesitant to publish my unedited or barely edited thoughts because I tend to work over ideas orally and in smaller settings many times before publishing them for the world to see. If I do that here, then I will never post anything, and besides, this seems like a nice opportunity to work over ideas in a more open forum.

I hope to post a few “things” soon. (After talking with Mike and reading his very cool paper on Things, I find myself putting quotes around the word without really thinking about it.) Anyway, I’ll post something quick and then I’ve got to go put my son to bed. More in coming days.
