One of the main reasons I haven’t kept up with the blog is that I wasn’t sure exactly where to set the bar. This won’t be a personal diary, although it may end up getting pretty personal. It won’t be a dry list of links or references, but I’ll have those too. It won’t be a snide or snarky commentary of deals I’ve seen, - although that’s sure to come out at some point. It won’t be about salacious gossip and rumors about the people or companies I deal with, that’s bad for business and invites negative karma. I’m not the smartest guy out there and I won’t fall in love with my own words. I may “blog angry” and regert it later. I will not shy away from controversy and, I will take sides, but I will allow my mind to be changed. I will write something that I would want to read today, and not worry about how I will be perceived or judged tomorrow. I will try to make this blog as open and honest of an account of the way I see things, for better or worse. Above all, I will try to be interesting.

This is my third serious restart of this blog. I’ve tried to blog regularly for the last three years or so, but I always seem to fall short. In the past I have made excuses: I don’t have the time, I deal with sensitive data, I don’t want to offend anyone etc. These are all legitimate reasons NOT to blog - but they’re not good enough for me any more. I want to start the conversation over, and wiping the slate clean is the best way I know how to do that.
