I have no blog and I must scream...

What's this? Well, apologies to Harlan Ellison for mangling the title of one story in his book that has been accurately classified as experimental/psychedelic/impressionistic, which just about sums up my goals for this blog ;) - that, and to avoid the reality tv effect that seems to afflict some blogs ;) but thankfully very few here at bsc.

Why blog?I've thought about blogging for a couple of years, but I always found another way to scratch the itch; I finally decided it was time to blog when a) the barrier to entry dropped even further when Sun created its own blog site and b) I finally realised that blogging was less of a soap-box and more of a staccato dialogue with readers; blog-ality seems to transcend space and time in a way that few other conversations can.

What do I want to blog about? I work in Sun's User Software business unit, based in Dublin, Ireland; currently my main focus is StarOffice/Openoffice.org; my work-related interests are collaboration, rich clients, personal & project portals, task-oriented UI's built by end users, federation of all kinds, and managed desktops (whew!) so I'll blog about some of that stuff. Staying with computer science for a bit, I'm also into AI and knowledge representation, and following threads from there into emerging everyday technologies like automatic content-indexing, neural networks, geographic and conceptual map-building and path-finding, and the semantic web.

I'll also share some personal insights on the world going by, and I hope to learn something from each of the comments that people make to my musings.

Thanks for dropping by, more soon.
