A great philosopher once said that a sorry excuse for a human being is still a human being, and so deserves some measure of compassion. In the same vein, this is a sorry excuse for a blog, because I rarely update it. Be gentle in your furious and anonymous criticisms!
I'm not willing to trust all my content on a network like Blogger. Once you let someone else host your words, they become responsible for them, and they may take proactive, evil steps to protect themselves from anything untoward you might have to say. I prefer to keep my site more independent. Although I've had requests for comments on my essays before, I just didn't want to spend the time building a comment system...
...which was a stupid excuse. Of course there are free open source PHP/MySQL comment systems you can plug into your own site. So I did! My essays now have a comment feature at the bottom.
Maybe I'll write another essay. I've been reading Arthur Koestler's Ghost in the Machine and that's one hell of a thought provoking book!
