I Am Not an Early Adopter...

...though in some cases I am in the early majority. My M505 Palm is 5 years old and I do not have a camera phone.

When BusinessWeek ran a feature on the power of blogs May 2nd, I started paying attention. Is starting a blog at this stage considered a "Pragmatist" or a "Conservative"? Maybe even a "Visionary"?

I've kept a journal of rants, raves, comments, and manifestos (yes, "manifestos"), since 1997. I have often felt that I would like others to occasionally see them. The words I type may be of little consequence, but then again, perhaps not. Who is to say that my tidbits of knowledge and analysis will not one day be held up along with the works of Freud, Lao Tsu, Friedrich Nietzche, J.R.R. Tolkien, or Ayn Rand?

We all want to say something and be heard; isn't that what this is all about?

I have eight years of scribbling to apply to current events; from the corporate sales days at Festo Corporation, to the deep post 9/11 cynicism that led me to leave that job and question my life's path, reading Adbusters along the way, to where I am now, married, still pondering my path, and working in the renewable energy industry.

I am looking forward to it.
