A New Blog

Just what the world needs. Over the last 7 or 8 years I’ve been told a number of times that I should start a blog, but I’ve never really gotten one off the ground. There are a number of reasons for that, including basic laziness, but primarily I couldn’t differentiate the kind of stuff I would post from what thousands of others were posting on their blogs.

I think now that I can. Generally, this will be a clearing house of all of my interests. More specifically I will be focusing largely on Translation, internationalisation (i18n), and localisation (L10n).

I was a part of the Watercooler network on Ning but the recent decision by the admin to instigate a paywall didn’t sit easily for me. I liked Watercooler, and I have no ill will towards the community or the admins – I can totally understand their decision. I just couldn’t write for or be part of a gated community. If I was to write, which I had been doing more and more because of Watercooler, I would want everyone to have access to what I was writing, so I decided to start my own blog.

I hope you find it interesting enough to keep coming back. I hope I find it interesting enough to keep it going.
