About

This "blocki" is a cross between a blog and a wiki. It is an experimental platform, intended for all those miscellaneous thoughts I want to share as they occur, like a blog, but keep growing on me so I want to go back and keep them up to date, like a wiki. It is already proving its worth and has become as useful to me personally as it is for sharing, if not more so, steadily eating into my "bright ideas I am working on" workspace. If you want to offer a comment on any topic I ramble on about, please follow the Contact link and send me an email. If it is useful then I will add it to the page. But I will not be accepting trivia or rants. For more about the site design and technology, see The Blocki Experiment.
