This is the rationale for the Blog, and until I figure out how to put it at the top of that page, it stays here — jd.
It’s time. After so many years, I want to put some of my ideas, beliefs, and (hopefully) insights out there. I wanted a place to express some of the good and not so good that I read about, hear about or experience. I will try to be clear and avoid the avoidable conflicts. The ideas presented are mine alone and do not represent friends, employers or other organizations with whom I work.
After seeing so much that I cannot believe, I wanted a place to document my ideas, to show that I did not always go with the majority, and was not wedded to conventional thinking of my generation. It is my hope that a subsequent generation will be able to see these views in some appropriate context, and it will make sense.
I also want my kids to know my thinking, and encourage their independent thinking.
