Living Journal

Sort of like a weblog, except that the reader can comment only via email, and I reserve the right to go back and edit previous entries to better express what I meant to say. I’ll try to update this once a week, but I doubt that will happen routinely.

Disclaimer: The point is to exercise my writing and examine my thinking, so things will undergo revision. I’ll generally try to indicate when something is revised, and I’ll also try to include the older text. However, this is all maintained by hand, because I’m crazy, so I don’t guarantee anything beyond the fact that I wrote everything here at one point. Though, given the existence of hackers, I’m not even sure I can guarantee that!
