DESC: My fifteen minutes of local blogging fame begins... now!
mentioned last week,
a feature writer for the local newspaper recently
interviewed me for an article on blogging. The
article appears in today's paper, and the
is already live. The article is a bit light,
given how much we talked, but it probably
reflects the fact that there are a lot more
soap opera-like blogs out than technical
ones. And the technical ones will have much
less appeal to most of the Courier's readership.
The good news is that I don't sound like an
idiot. If anything, I sound like a long-winded
academic. (The sarcastic reader can decide
which it's better to be.) The author quotes
me accurately enough, though my second quote
is missing its ending, I think.
I wonder if I'll see any hits from new readers
in the Cedar Valley as a result... We have a
few software developers in the area, so some
may even find my blog interesting.
