Stirring somewhere deep inside me is the urge to blog again. Not sure what it’s going to be on – the contemporary orthodoxy of choice (or, why trade unions are here to stay), the perfection that is Dennis Bergkamp, why Wikipedia is becoming LiveJournal, how both tech-evangelists and neo-Luddites now totally agree with each other, why your blog is shit (yes, I’m talking about you), my thoughts on folksonomies/Amazon’s Mechanical Turk/other human services to machinekind, the f-word (and I’m not talking about “fuck”), why every time I make a Tube journey a little piece of me dies, and conversely, how to make yourself feel a little bit more alive. Oh, and my grand masterplan for a perfect society, naturally.
It could be one or many of the above. It will certainly be less pretentious and enigmatic than this post. I don’t know what I will write about, or when. I would put the choice of topic to a vote, but this ain’t a democracy; I only really posted this to tell you all I am still alive (especially those of you whose emails, to my horror, I’ve realised I’ve left unanswered). But anyway, normal service may resume sometime soon*. Promise.
