My friend and writer Bob Brown has created a weblog. It will be interesting to see what he makes of it. He writes:
I am not really a technological Luddite, though I’d like to be right now. The reason? My PC has been attacked by something called a self-replicating virus, which sounds suspiciously like an online version of swine flu. I’ve been told that I’ll get my precious computer back sometime today, and I can’t wait. Meanwhile, I’m taking advantage of a long-standing offer by my friend, Rachel Hyland, to help me establish a blog of my very own. We’re sitting in her office, hunched over her computer, and I am experiencing an odd blend of exhilaration and dread.
