Hello blog

First posts are always hard to write, and not really useful for anything except filling out the first page. But, it’s a good opportunity to state for myself what I want this blog to be.

This blog should:

  1. Be a space I use to write about technology (my work and my side projects)
  2. Be a space I use to sometimes write about things other than technology
  3. Give me a kind of creative outlet I don’t have in my day job
  4. Be fun to work on

For now, this blog runs on [Pelican](http://getpelican.com/), [reStructuredText](http://docutils.sourceforge.net/rst.html), and [Github pages](https://help.github.com/articles/what-are-github-pages).

In early 2014 I moved to Svbtle to make writing and publishing easier.
