Doesn’t anyone have “home pages” any more? Whatever happened to “home pages?” Whatever happened to finger files, for that matter? You know — time was that you could find out about anyone on the internet by typing (yes typing) a command like “finger user@something.something” and it would come back with some useful information. I say bring back Finger.

So I’ve finally decided to start a blog. I must be the last person on Earth. I think there are tribesmen somewhere in the Amazon Rain-forest that are already blogging away. It’s ironic, because I was one of the first people to publish a “Zine” (back when we had Zines, back when people were shocked — shocked! — that someone might use the Internet for commercial purposes). Blogging, I’ve always had a bad association with — something about being exhibitionist/ narcissistic. Yet here I am. So I’ve just found out that the spell checker on this thing (Blogger’s text entry widget) doesn’t have the words “blog” or “blogging” in it. Does anyone actually use this thing?
