Yes, I’m still alive, thanks for asking. So, where’ve I been?
Some nine months ago, in December 2011, I wanted to impress the higher-ups at my company with hopes that it would lead to a promotion. I found myself having a casual cocktail with the person in charge of the promotion. The conversation was going fine until I mentioned that (gasp!) I had a blawg.
My benefactor’s response was immediate. “Don’t have a blawg!”
Yes, this contains my own opinions and I’m not going to write anything against the interests of my employer, but at the same time, our marketing folks didn’t get to vet my words here, so the use of a blawg was Very Highly Discouraged. Being a good soldier (and really wanting the dang promotion), I thought it best to comply with this person’s wishes. Hence, the radio silence you’ve (not) been hearing since last December.
Well, in the past nine months, guess how much progress I’ve made with the decision-maker. Yep, none. So, the heck with it; this blawg is back online. I promise to neither shill for my employer’s products or technology, nor say anything that might reflect negatively upon them.
With that pledge, unless I am explicitly told that this blawg threatens my continued employment (which will raise an entirely different issue), we’re back. Whether that’s a good thing or not … hey, you be the judge. This really is here for your use, after all.
