Three years ago yesterday, I hit Publish on this blog for the first time. This was my very first post.
Where has the past year taken us?
We examined how too much precision kills communication. I gave you 17 ideas for your 3D printer. I bought a unicycle and delved into group isomorphism (whatever the hell that is). Still working on that unicycle, by the way – I brought it out of the garage again just a week ago, after months of neglect.
We asked whether luxury is morally wrong and delved into the Voynich Manuscript. I interviewed friend of the blog Ben Trube about his fractal book. You endured my two-sentence terrors with good grace. I waxed lyrical on Dr. Who and Avatar: The Last Airbender. For the latter, I made fan art and even a music video.
I joined a zen community, self-published a book of poems called “The Witching Hour,” and explored my relationship with Christianity in a two-part post (one, two). We briefly visited Siberia, and Iceland too; apparently I have a thing for the frozen north. And we talked about free will in The Lego Movie.
I took a hiatus due to illness, but I’m back.
It’s been a good year. A difficult year, but a good year.
As always, thank you for reading. You make this blog worthwhile. Without you, I’d just be rambling into space.
Here’s to three more years (at least). Excelsior!
