Apologies for my absence. I was traveling and didn't have the time (or reliable Internet access) for 'blog posts. But because I was traveling on my own, I wound up having a lot of time to think about various things, and one of them was this 'blog. Up to now I have focused on "long form" pieces here, and used Facebook for any "here's a cool link" posts. I have decided to change that. From now on, everything goes up on the 'blog. I'll still link it to Facebook, but I want to keep more material in a medium I can control better.
So: expect more short "here's something" posts, some of which may have a little more political content than this 'blog has featured in the past. No full-bore polemics, though. I don't want to be a Moron With A Bullhorn.
I will still be doing longer pieces as I think of them, and the Random Encounter Tables will return. I'll be going back to my shelves for more Lost Games, and I'll be doing more book reviews.
Just to kick things off in this new, improved manner, here's a neat video! If these guys aren't crazy (and they did build the greatest airplane ever) the energy world is about to be flipped over like a card table in a tornado.
