I launched this blog as In2Deep 7 years and 1295 articles ago this week. It went a little quiet while I got my grad degree a few years ago. And a couple of times while major falling away was occurring within. A year and a half ago, I picked up the Davidya.ca domain and in January this year, it was all migrated to the current site.
When I launched, I was in the middle of writing a related book that foundered on the realities of publishing (rightfully) the following year. Still a work in progress (there’s a lot to cover), though now more as smaller ebooks. The blog launch was also about a month and a half after the initial awakening. And a month after I launched my science & tech blog, ForNow. ForNow was the evolution of a large web design site called Chanticlear that I hand-coded after studying new media in ’96. Just a few colour tables still remain of that.
My own process included several early openings that didn’t fit common understanding. This has driven my desire to understand and share what was discovered. But as a result, I talk more about what I’ve learned from it rather than my own experience. Of course, articles are often driven by experience and the blog has certainly reflected the journey and the stages that unfolded. All very ironic that it would take this form with a guy who seriously flunked English 11. 😉
Thanks for joining me on this rather remarkable journey.
