Relaunch and Purpose

I first reg­is­tered this web­site in Novem­ber 2005. Over time, it tran­si­tioned into a rel­a­tively generic per­sonal blog. I chron­i­cled my taste in music and tele­vi­sion shows (includ­ing spec­u­la­tion about the fate of Arrested Devel­op­ment), among other things. The old blog was an inter­est­ing out­let, but it lacked focus and grew rel­a­tively inac­tive over the last two years. As a result, I took it down and replaced it with a land­ing page.

In the last month or so, I’ve decided to reclaim my lit­tle cor­ner of the inter­net. After study­ing some CSS best prac­tices, I hand­crafted a new land­ing page that empha­sizes good typog­ra­phy cou­pled with a sim­ple, min­i­mal­is­tic lay­out. It also links to my tum­blr, where I can share inter­est­ing finds with­out pol­lut­ing the focus of a blog.

Most recently, I’ve made the deci­sion to relaunch this blog. All of my old entries are safely archived, but removed from this cur­rent revi­sion. Rather than look to the past, I want this site to exist in the moment and build a richer history.

What will I focus on? Impro­vi­sa­tion and its appli­ca­tion to daily life. I believe every­one can ben­e­fit from tak­ing improv classes, even if they have no inter­est in becom­ing an actor or a come­dian. In fact, I led a dis­cus­sion at SXSW Inter­ac­tive 2011 about that very sub­ject. I’m pas­sion­ate about impro­vi­sa­tion and con­fi­dent I can extract sev­eral great lessons from it. Stay tuned, I plan to update often.
