Anybody listening?

Me, with my own blog? Hard to believe. But where else to articulate the opinions that no flesh-and-blood person wants to listen to?

I'm still trying to figure out what a blog is, let alone a luddite.

It's funny this blog from my old friend Alec should come to my attention just now. In terms of what to do with my life, I've thought of writing, with some encouragement from others. (Here's an unpolished reply I put into a nearly random place in the blogosphere):

Blogs seem like the best place to start when dipping toes into writing.

I came across this article on how to get into the blogging world:

I don't know enough to tell the true from the ironic from the just plain wrong, but just figuring out what he was talking about seemed like it would be useful.

Hey Alec - it' s cool to see what you're up to.

Luddite, huh? So we've gone from "Smash the State" to "Smash the Cell Phone"? Yes, I believe we have. In fact, just today I was in the office of my Dean, and in the middle of his conference table there was a cell phone scrunched between the jaws of a channel lock wrench. He said that it was meant as a reminder that people meeting with him had better turn off their cell phones first....

We now take you back to our regularly scheduled programming, circa 1975.....

but what exactly was that hierarchy of superb experiences? There was cosmic, orgasmic, mind-blowing, and, um, peachy-keen. Surely there were more, and what, for chrissakes, was the order?

Hey Alec! Long time no see - about 30 years. Great to see all that you are doing. I'm in Needham almost every weekend. Maybe we can catch up over coffee.
