This is my third attempt in starting and maintaining a blog. I failed twice, perhaps because previous blogs were meant as a way to keep up to date friends and family on my travel experiences. Back home, the blogs were left to their destiny of archives as I failed to evolve their purpose. I’m still skeptical that I’ll be able to keep up with some meaningful posts this time. After all, I question, why should anything I write be of enough value to be worth publishing on a blog? We will see.

What is this blog about? Well, I don’t know. I’m working in computer technology, though, I would really, I mean really, like to avoid publishing yet another blog with posts that glorify own super-cool-software-inventions, also because there are no such things like super-cool-software-inventions that are compiled on my computer. Nevertheless, I might talk sometimes about technology. My prediction is that I’ll mostly write about stuff that goes through my head, with the hope that it will be more than nothing. Let’s put it this way; this blog is defined by the sum of its posts, which at best means that it will have an ever changing, evolutionary, definition.

A note on the picture in the header. It is part of a shot showing a woman’s hand repainting the engraved words on a wooden board. The picture was taken at the Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco during my backpack trip across the US in summer 2005.
