Ah the enviable first post, though its less of an achievement than if it were on Slashdot. Well here I am finally ushering myself into this strange world of blogging. Its really unique that for the first time in the history of publication, an individual can decide on having their opinion available to the entirety of mankind. First there were websites such as Slashdot and Neowin.net with select news items being discussed by many people. Now it has evolved to individuals creating online logs about their opinions on particular topics they want to rant about.

At first I was skeptical of blogs which I presumed to be unqualified people making illogical statements and basically being a waste of time. Fortunately, I was impressed by a few blogs that caught my eye. I frequently read an online comic strip called penny-arcade. It deals with a couple of guys who just like messing around with their computers, the comic book mainly seemed pretty dumbed down and unintelligent. After visiting the authors website I noticed it had a blog. I wasn't really expecting anything good to read in the blog. To my surprise I found the blog entries very intelligent. A diverse set of thoughts and viewpoints, both funny and smart. I thought I just have to create my blog now.

So here I am with that first post. Not worrying whether it will be moderated down or not. Its my publication and I'm free to do whatever I want. No mod points in sight, just a viewpoint of my life.
