BLOGS are Hard :(

20 May 2008 by James RameyJames Ramey

I guess I don't have much to say because I find it difficult (even challenging) to keep up with my BLOG.  I admire people that have the ability to consistently write witty and interesting thoughts on a daily basis.  Me, I am more of a monthly, bi-monthly, even quarterly guy which equates to dull and sparatic.  In almost every context, dull and sparatic are not good adjectives.  I mean no one strives to be dull and / or sparatic.  Some people accept their limitations and try to put a good spin on it as to say that they are reliable, dependable, or even easy going.  I don't buy that either.  Sometimes less is more, but I think with BLOGs more is more.

My experiences, though, are very interesting as of late.  I am working with a variety of individuals and companies from around the world on their technology projects.  Some projects are incredibly vast and complicated - like assisting government agencies in Africa in moving to Linux or delivering "the mail" across a Linux enterprise for a media company in Germany.  I am involved in providing elementary students with the portal to visit vast virtual worlds and also in making the computers more usable for the visually impared.  Other projects are very personal - like working directly with individuals who are trying to create and build their own Linux-centric technology companies or assisting a dad in trying to make a mapping program work on his daughter's laptop.  In both the micro and macro projects, I see first hand how technology is evolving and impacting the lives of so many people.  If only I could put all those thoughts and feelings into words.

When I see the opportunities available with technology today, I am simply amazed.  Imagine delivering standard applications across mixed platforms or porting specific PC applications to Linux and Mac environments.  10 years ago, this was not possible.  10 years from now, it may be ancient history.  I truely enjoy being a part (if only the smallest part) of the technology revolution.  If only, I could write it down more.

I personally I don't even blog for my audience. I often do or see things that I know I am not going to remember in the future, instead of putting it into a document that sits on my hard drive that only I can access I put it on my blog. That way it is there for my reference later and hundreds of other people get to use it as well.

From what you have written it sounds like you have a lot of interesting things to share and I look forward to reading your posts in the future.
