Quick Observation on Blogging
Me: Why are people so personally rude via e-mail and blog comments? I'm deleting more mail and posts than ever lately.
Friend: What are your blog topics?
Me: I maintain websites on economic theory, political rhetoric, technology, autism, creative writing, and philosophy.
Friend: You do realize only creative writing and technology aren't likely to trigger hate mail.
Me: It seems Linux is a religion.
Friend: Says the person with an Apple sticker on every vehicle.
Sometimes, it is easy to forget a personal zealotry. I am having a strong reaction to the fact my future employer is an all-Windows campus. Yes, I use Windows sometimes — but I just uninstalled Boot Camp from my Mac and removed the last Windows software.
Turns out, I am a fanatic, too.
