So I Finally Have a Website!

I’m not really sure what I’m going to do with this website, or “Blog” as some people would call it.  I like it when I read an article about that newfangled Internet and the World Wide Web and the reporter explains that a “blog” is simply a shortened way of saying “web log”.

Last week I was on airport shuttle heading to the car rental lot and there were advertisement posters on the shuttle for Alamo.  One said “Meet us on the information superhighway” and showed their URL next to a picture of a car on a road.  See, it’s a play on words because the service Alamo provides is renting cars to people who might drive them on highways, or perhaps superhighways, and one way to find out information about this service is from the company’s website.  Also, it’s funny because I can’t remember the last time somebody referred to the “information superhighway” – what is this, 1997?  I asked that question on the shuttle and I was disappointed to find that my companions did not think I was especially witty, even after repeating it several times.

    You could also think of ‘web log’ as ‘We Blog’!
