Those Damn Ungrateful Kids!

Kids! You raise ’em. You nurse ’em. You worry about ’em. You wait up until all hours for ’em. You help ’em get their domain name. And how do they repay ya? They fire ya from their blogs. Well, that’s what happened to me. My son invited me to post on his blog–I did, and then he unceremoniously took down the post and rescinded the invitation. What’s that all about? Ask him yourself!

    I appreciate SNG’s comment, although I have said many times that a fully-signed comment holds more weight than an anonymous or virtually anonymous one. Nonetheless, I do, in fact, use my blog for various things related to design and popular culture, and many of them are directly related to my experience or the experiences of those who report to me.

    I certainly try to inform the readers of interesting, unique, and sometimes controversial developments. Some are notations, others are brief analyses. I also try to inject a little humor where appropriate (or not, if the bug bites).

    I regret that recent posts have been disappointing. But not everything in a daily venue will be of interest to everyone. Just keep on looking and I’m sure more chords will be hit during the week than not.

    Actually, if you bother to check out my son’s blog you’ll see some truly interesting posts by a repretory of keen observers.
