I'm impressed with Rob's blog leadership. When the blog first went up I thought it was a great idea and there have been some posts that have been totally awesome, but it was usually just Rob posting. Now, with Rob's encouragement, I see the scope and authorship on the blog has really expanded. Props to Swamp Boy.

I've been a really lazy blogger. For one thing, I can never think of anything cool to post. I think this is in part due to grad school which consumes most of my waking and some of my sleeping thoughts. Whenever I do actually think of something amazing to post I'm not at a computer and by the time I get by a computer some paper or report is due or I get sucked into reading about politics on the internet.

I promised Rob I would post something today and I hoped as I wrote that some amazing idea would explode into my brain and I would write it and people would laugh and cry at their desks (like when they read Jed's great post) as they read but nothing like that has happened and I'm just rambling. Maybe that's okay though.


  1. mat, i like you just the way you are.

  2. I think blogging is hard--sometimes you just have to go for it. I never wanted to do it before because I never had the brilliant ideas everybody else did. But I do it anyway. I'm sure it's boring sometimes but I have fun. Keep up the trying! I love to read the stuff youguys do!

  3. Sweet, even in posting about not posting Duerden still sounds interesting. Seriously, you have that story-telling skill down.
