I believe in blogging and the power of Citizen Journalism. Heck, I worked my tail off (and burned through a few karma points) at one time to help make sure blogs.sun.com happened at Sun. I did the same when I first arrived at Intel, and since IMHO Intel is somewhat "PR Challenged" its probably news to most of you that they did launch an IT-focused blogspace a few months ago. I was invited to blog on it...but frankly was in a blogging slump at the time. Oh, I started a few posts, but never actually published them because they just didn't seem all that interesting. And the interesting stuff I wasn't supposed to blog about.
For the past few weeks I've had a chest cold that just wouldn't go away. Maybe I picked up a designer bug somewhere in the world? I don't know. I do know that I've been 'grounded' (as in not flying at all) since Labor Day...and now I'm blogging again! To tell the truth I started bloggign so my family would be able to track where I was in the world. Now I use Flickr for that (one great picture being worth a thousand blogs). But just in the past week I find I really want to communicate via blog again. Will it last once I'm up and traveling again? Guess we'll just have to see.
