This is the weblog of Edward Vielmetti in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It's part of a continuous stream of writing online that started for the Internet in 1985, and that showed up here on Typepad in 2003 or so.
I have been interested in a great many things, which all have had something to do one way or the other with networks and internetworks at all levels – technical, political, social, biological, intellectual and commercial. Often, the only way to make sense of something is to write about it, and the log reflects that continuous stream of curiousity much more so than any desire to "publish".
Quite a bit of this writing has been about Ann Arbor, and for a year and a half I wrote a daily column for AnnArbor.com that was published online. That was a fascinating job, and it's over; I'm currently seeking a new full-time position. You can see my online resume on LinkedIn, which makes some approximation of what a career in the Internet looks like.
I took this weblog offline for a few months in early 2011 so that I could read through enough of it to do an edit on some of the categorization, add back in some old materials that deserved to be preserved, and unpublish a handful of mostly unread works that needed further editing. The editing job is woefully lacking in most blogging, and the opportunity to go offline for a bit and do a cleanup job is quite welcomed.
