I have a confession to make, but it should already be self-evident to those that know me or follow me. I am a terrible blogger. I'm sure my SEO is tremendously lacking, I'm not making any money from ads or adsense (I'd love to), and I'm not selling anything.
The terrible part though, is that I rarely post anything. Now, that isn't because I lack of things to say...I have a TON to talk about. Some people can't shut me up once I get going, but lucky for everyone I am usually more on the quiet and reserved side until I get to know you. Then watch out!
I do give myself a hard time about not posting or writing here as much as I should or want to. I find it incredibly frustrating to see other people saying or writing things on certain topics that I was talking to people about years ago. I just never got around to writing it here and publishing it.
The other thing that has always nagged me, especially about augmented reality and virtual reality, is that I have to keep wary about what I do say and publish, because I have a lot of ideas and IP that I am patenting or that I am developing with some startup or another.
For those of you that know me, you know I have a bad habit of writing really long emails. You would think then, that I would be a much more prolific writer here, but I am not. To be honest, writing sometimes takes a lot out of me. I can't even count how many times I started writing something, but never finished the draft because I just ran out of mental energy. I've got to work on that!
Anyway, I just put a new template on the site this afternoon, and I'm pretty fired up about writing more. So many things have happened in the last year (personally) and in the industry (recently). How could I not start writing again?
Oh, funny side story: I had one guy that worked for me for a few years... he would respond to many of my longer emails with a quick TL;DR and his name. I like to think I'm pretty savvy when it comes to the internet and web-culture, but it took me a long time to realize what that actually meant. All that time I thought he was actually reading what I was sending him. Needless to say, we had a bit of a chat when I figured it out.
