Ode to the entries

While biking home one sunny afternoon last october I was bitten by the blogging bug. I got home, wrote a few blog entries, saved them in my private wiki, and let them maserate a week or two before deciding if they really were actually funny enough to start blogging. Ironically I lost them due to a mysterious hard drive failure, yeah... first ever... My witty understanding of trajectories and predicting people's internal turning signal was also lost.

I would classify myself as a consumer of information, not really a generator of information... apart from the odd tutorial or 6. I'm subscribed to a few mailing lists, some of which I read, most of which sit bold and forever unopened in my gmail. I've searched almost every linux forum (and nowadays StackExchange) for answers but only asked roughly 3 questions.

So, the question is... I'm generally useful but am I virtually useful? If I start this blog, how often will I post? I use my wiki weekly, generally to keep track of commands or procedures, howtos or notes about what I've read. So my posts might turn out to be quite frequent and bear no connection to each other, other then their source: a cycling programming field linguist who lives and dances salsa in Montreal. I have to admit the lure of my android and its voice transcription finally hit the sweet spot in my effort/benefit ratio for publicizing my thoughts and howtos for those who want to subscribe.
