I’m on Google+

Encircle me. I’m treating Google Plus as Twitter, the extended mix. I like its photo gallery feature, imperfect though it may be, so I’ll likely post photos there and link back. Minute-to-minute blathering can be found on Twitter: @billdinTO. When I’m back up to speed, this blog will the place for curating, analysis and major commentaries penned by […]

I'm now on Facebook

This blog enters its fourth year of existence today

I launched this blog on Aug. 12, 2004. Three years later, I've made 4,561 posts and through them, altered the course of human history in ways that neither myself or overall humanity fully appreciate yet. Or not. Thanks to all those who, through their loyal patronage, have made this blog number 177,881 on Technorati. I […]
