An Author Reborn.

Submitted my first technical article after a two-year self-imposed hiatus. While I’ve written a few small web pieces and whitepapers for a dozen conferences or so, (oh, and a book), this was my first article, and I was rusty! Keeping it short, sweet and organized. Eliminating all the extra verbiage but keeping enough transition and organization so the reader could follow. Submitted the first draft to the editor and expect to get back a red-inked-bloodbath. It’ll take a while to get into the swing again, but it’s good to be writing.

  • Announced by owner Evan at the “Live from the BlogoSphere” happening last night in L.A. Musta been some event – looks like few blogged much before crashing for the night. Wish they’d blogged it live. Waiting for the sun to rise on the left coast for more details…
  • and are the properties sold off.
  • SlashDot is on it, of course, with their mixture of brilliant insightfulness and inane irrelevancies.
