It has come to my attention that my plethora of posts on so trivial of topics has been construed by some as the equivalent of spam, the blasting of electronic bits down the proverbial throats of others, the unsuspecting masses of web surfers caught in the maelstrom of my mad malignant mind. Which of course begs the question, is there such as thing as being truly off topic within the grand collective cacophony of voices that are flung out in the blogoverse at the speed of light? After all, a blog feed is not a newsgroup or a forum thread that is managed by an administrator. There is no continuity between one message and the next. There is no governing body that processes the paperwork, observes, scrutinizes, rates and regulates, and grants passage to the digital documents of this modern metropolis.
When I signed up for this gig I knew what I was getting myself into. I knew what kind of blog I wanted to create, and what kind I did not. I am posting here on MSDN as the voice of a Microsoft developer, one that has thoughts and ideas, insights and inspirations all across the board. Some of my notions pertain to programming, some of them do not. I try not to wade into any topic that might appear too controversial or against the code of conduct that employees of this company have here at work, not that these are restrictions placed on the use of the blog site, just my own common sense. I try just to be me, the same guy you’d be talking to at lunch or in a meeting. Sometimes I am actually as nutty in real life as I seem in my posts. Sometimes it is just creative license. Either way, this is the voice that I want reaching out into the void. This is the voice I want shouting with the multitudes on line, blurring in into obscurity among the fire hose spray that is the feed.
