Starting a weblog - and making it public - needs to be done with a sense of purpose. Given the fact that we seem to exist today in a state of 'information overload,' there's no real benefit to adding to the cacaphony, unless...
Unless you believe that you have something to say that at least some people will find interesting, and useful, and that you won't merely add another decibel or two to the noise that seems to surround us. So, it is with the belief that I can provide something useful and interesting that I have created this public weblog.
This blog will not be a daily diary of my life - I don't think most people (and that includes my friends and most of my relatives) want to read a day-by-day account of my comings, goings and doings (or 'don't-ings' as the case sometimes is) and I certainly don't believe that sort of thing is either useful or interesting. The blog title (the inspiration for which I owe to Rich at debianandi.blogspot.com - see the link below right) and the blog description really tell you most of what you need to know about my purpose here - namely - to do what I can to promote the Window Maker window manager, Linux, and open source projects (mainly software projects of various sizes, types and descriptions) and (maybe - occasionally) something outside the Linux-Window Maker-Open Source family of topics that I find especially interesting and compelling enough to post on this blog.
What I envision - at least now, at the outset - is that I can provide information on Window Maker, Linux, and open source software from a user's perspective that will help in some small way to help others with similar interests or who are looking for alternatives to their current computing tools.
I will be posting how-to's related to Window Maker. I will be posting information on the ongoing development (as I understand it - I'm not a programmer or developer, just a user) of Window Maker and the Linux distributions that offer it as a window management environment. I will be posting on projects that I am directly connected with - such as Liquid Lemur Linux (see the 'links') and others. In short, I will be trying to provide useful information that is interesting to at least some people - but I've already said that, and since I'm beginning to repeat myself, I'll end this first post here, except to say - Please check back, you might find something you can use or something of interest.
