I started this site in 2000. I used to aspire to do great and lovely
things with it. I've since realized that I prefer to interact with
ideas rather than make pretty expressions of them. Standards have a way
of fading in light of procrastination.
I write about and research networks, media, technology, analytics,
openness, and higher education. And roughly anything else that
interests me at a particular stage. I suffer substantially from "shiny
object syndrome". These excursions often lead to integrative and
holistic thinking. At least, that's how I rationalize the breadth of
topics I explore.
