Hello World

For many years, I have watched the Blog phenomenon unfold with Dave Winer, a friend I have known since his Living Video Text days, in the middle of it.  I have avoided blogging mainly because I instinctively felt that blogging is not only as addictive as smoking, but also changes how one thinks and behaves day by day.  Whether the effects of bloggin is good or not, I cannot stay away any longer.  So off I go into Blogspace.
