August intentions

I started this blog back in 2007, an aeon ago in internet time, and since then not a month has gone by without the appearance of at least one post. It’s true that more than a few of these missives, including this one, have been hastily thrown together as the deadline loomed, but I’m still rather proud of our record.

I am a bit annoyed that I didn’t post more this month; there was no shortage of potential topics, and it’s not like I’ve been particularly busy with anything else. As I noted not too long ago though, at this point in my life I don’t really have the inclination to come up with instant opinions on current events, but prefer to take some time to look at all the angles before producing a suitably considered response. I’d like to think that this is a sign of intellectual maturity, but I have to admit that it’s mainly laziness, as evidenced by the fact that the closely argued analytical pieces rarely appear either.

Anyway, on to September. I’ll try to post early in the month, so that I don’t find myself once more scraping together some random thoughts as the clock runs down on the 30th.
