Hello World

Following the long geek tradition of self-referential names, I was tempted to call this blog Yet Another Technology Blog. But that's been done to death and YATB isn't particularly pronounceable.

And then I thought about calling it Mark's Standards, Technology, Unknowns, Practicalities, Innovation, and Design blog. That's quite a mouthful, but it can conveniently be abbreviated to “Mark's STUPID blog”. But that doesn't work because I fully expect that some of my entries will be beyond STUPID. At least in retrospect.

Finally I realized that my topics frequently come from someone popping their head through my door with “Uhm, Mark?”, and so the title of this blog was born.

In this blog I'll talk about, well, whatever I feel like, but it will mostly be technology-centric, from the social aspects of technology consumption and production to design and coding.
