If you are an occasional visitor, you may have noticed some changes in the look and feel of the site in the past few weeks. I debated this last choice throughout that process, but I've decided to retire the old blog and start anew. A lot has changed about who I am, how I think of things, and what topics interest me. I may occasionally re-post some "greatest hits," articles that still got a good bit of traffic. If there's something you came here looking for in particular, something you'd like to see re-posted, feel free to contact me.
