So I was with Frank Boosman in a meeting and I was talking about how excited I was about setting up a blog. He said, "Oh No. Now all you'll be thinking about is whether something will be material for your blog." Well Frank. That was material for my blog. ;-p

I believe I actually suggested that you would henceforth select social interactions based on their potential blog-value. There's a theory of human behavior in the future there somewhere...

Which means that my behavior shouldn't change that much. ;-)

I also compared this phenomenon to Amway salespeople, who invariably begin evaluating all people they meet as future Amway-ers below them in the Amway food chain (you know, the one that has someone above you who gets free cars, while you have to order stuff for yourself just to look like you're trying). I'm thinking about this more now that you have me thinking about starting my own blog. Is this my future?

On the other hand, if you've already been behaving as if you were a blogger, and life has been kind to you, maybe this is a good thing. Blog your way to fame and fortune?

-- Frank

You're just paranoid Frank. I would never look at you that way... Although you did copy me and buy a new Sony Clie. Anyway, you can download the blog software I'm using from http://www.movabletype.org/ ;-)
