Hello, World!


I'm starting this blog with some experiments with 100-word posts.

I'm not witty enough for Twitter, but I mostly don't want to argue with strangers. Writing a newsletter was fun, but my tiny ideas keep exploding into multi-page essays. The proofreading and editing buried me for weeks.

So I'm trying for ~100 words at a time. About the length of a few tweets. I mostly just want a place to jot down my thoughts. Some code, some math, some music.

Maybe I should just text my friends more.

But I like playing around with Markdown so here we are.
