A little while ago, tonyso wrote a post entitled If a blog falls in the forest...
It got me thinking....
Now for what it is worth, I am not fishing and no one is expected or even desired to post and say that I am. This is an official request to not post along those lines, everyone!
I am not sure if I am a good "blogger" in the conventional sense. For example I know that my policies about editing to fix typos and such goes against the whole "slice of time" idea, and the fact that I do not completely open up comments in a "free for all, Microsoft bashing" vein smacks of censorship.
Also, focusing on an area as broad as international means I am covering way to much to be intrinscly and consistently useful to anyone on an everyday basis. If people read consistently it is either because
Both of these ideas are vaguely flattering to me, for reasons I have not fully analyzed. :-)
I think I do have passion for internationalization in general and key areas of it (coinciding with that list of things I am doing now) in particular.
I am reminded of a quote from the movie Back To School. Thornton Melon (Rodney Dangerfield) is talking about a somewhat crazed professor Terguson (Sam Kinison) who he had just shouted down. He says "Good teacher, he really seems to care....about what I have no idea." I think sometimes people may see what I do that way (hopefully not too often!).
But I am having fun. I bought the following T-Shirt from http://www.thinkgeek.com/ not too long ago:
And I love wearing it, especially on days when I am going to a meeting where I am not allowed to breathe a word of what is said. Keeps people on their toes. :-)
