This blog has been alive now since Feb 2006. It started with a relatively uneven tone, as many blogs do, moving between the personal and the professional, the and the, erm, less trivial; the first posts were a mildly witty observation about an airport, a review of Breakfast at Tiffany’s and a discussion on semantic enrichment of literature which seems as true then as now.
I originally wrote this as a brief comment in reply to David Osumi-Sutherlands excellent post. But, the formatting got mixed up and is unfixable there, so I posted I am posting it here.
