Singing along with third eye blind just now, ivy says "I want something else.." then stops and sternly admonishes herself: "I don't think that's how you ask."
I'm hanging it up. This is the final blog entry. Put away the kleenex, you three. You knew it was coming. Tomorrow the future officially begins, for real this time, and blogging is going to be SO '0-X by about 10AM.
I may reopen somewhere, but if I do it'll only be about software, and niche software at that.
In case anyone wonders what happened to me the last couple years: I was reborn. It took half my (projected) life, but I unexpectedly discovered something I'd only caught in glimpses before: pure, limitless, intrinsic motivation. I am addicted to the multiplier effect which emerges as I spend more and more time on software. And most of all: "It's a great thing when you realize you still have the ability to surprise yourself."
Happy new year, and happy lives to everyone straggling across the finish line with me.
