The best time to start a blog was 20 years ago, the second best time is today

So this web-marlarky is here to stay then 😉

It’s been around 15 years since I turned my back on websites after being scarred using HTML and javascript.  Apparently, it’s all different now and I can’t escape it any longer.  It’s not that I haven’t written networked games, administered web-servers, created online java applets, used web APIS and mobile apps – I just always felt much more comfortable having everything stored locally.

I can put it off no longer.  So this means javacript, HTML5, CSS3, node.js and all the other buzzwords that go with it.  It also means jumping on the cloud bandwagon.  I think the hardest part is to accept that I won’t know exactly whats going on under the hood, or where in the world my code and content are stored.  It’s a real mindset change.  Makes me think of this scene from Grosse Pointe Blank:

– Shakabuku.

– You wanna tell me what that means?

– It’s a swift, spiritual kick to the head that alters your reality forever.

– Oh, that’d be good. I think.

Embracing the web – oh, that’d be good I think.
