Not so long ago, okay — yesterday, someone said to me live and person, “hey you haven’t updated your site since April.” Really, I wondered, I’ve been busy working and writing all over the place, but it seemed that this site, the site that is my platform for all things local, really hasn’t been updated since April.
That created an odd sort of philosophical question to ponder on about. Did I really have nothing to say since April? The answer is not really. I’ve been over in twitter-land posting in 140 character increments for awhile, writing about London, writing grants, coding big projects that never seem to end and all the while popping over to the local media sites to drop a comment here and there on the issues that just seemed to call for a comment here and there.
So yes, I’ve neglected this site a bit. Not that I haven’t been thinking about it. It’s in, in dog years, 13 years old, and in internet years a lifetime. When I started the idea there were still dial up modems in the land. And the economy was booming, the dot com bust hadn’t happened and so there’s a lot of mileage under the tires. It has over the years periodically lain fallow. I think for many of the same reasons that it happened this time around.
And yet, here I am, dusting off the psoting engine and looking around.
I think there’s still much left to say about Connecticut and that little project that I like to putter around in called Norwalk.
