I just got back from a trip to Ottawa last night. I just went on my own and did some sightseeing. I found thoughts and ideas occurring to me while I was there and I realised that I didn't have a platform to put them out there. Well, at least not if they're more than 140 whatever characters (I am on Identi.ca and Twitter) After all a thought (good, bad or indifferent) is useless if it stays in your head.
So, that being said, go ahead and get those thoughts out of your head. And welcome to my blog.
P.S. You may be wondering about the 'yu210148'. Like many I went to York University in Toronto and while there was assigned an email address. At the time--I graduated in 2002--named ones were reserved for faculty. Undergrads like myself were assigned numbers prefixed by 'yu'. I've stuck with it for most of my online stuff simply because it's unique and usually available as a username. Even here I tried a couple of different variations of my name when signing up and of course they were taken. It may not be the easiest thing to remember but that's why there are bookmarks (favourites if your speak IE).
