“I’ve broken down and started up a blog. Like a lot of recently out-of-work folks/new bloggers, I’ve been ripped from the warm embrace of a highly charged intellectual environment. And I miss it terribly. Sure, I could just read all the great stuff that other people are writing, though with the potential demise of Tomalak’s Realm, that might become much more difficult. But honestly: I hate to read content that’s related to work. I like to think this is not disinterest or intellectual laziness, like some people. No, I’d just rather read the stuff my friends feed me. I also find that IA-related concepts are much more enjoyable if I get a chance to articulate them, not just read about them; hence bloug.”
