Procrastinate, procrastinate, procrastinate.

Is there a point to this weblog? Probably not, but I’ve wanted to have one for about ten years. I started one in 2003—hand coded—which, funnily enough, didn’t last long. The posts were, for the most part, really short, and the venerable Twitter fulfils this role now.

As the title suggests, I am not the world champion of doing. In fact, it is a miracle that I have finished this post at all. Originally I was going to write about Spotify, but after it sat unfinished here for several months it was becoming more and more out of date. In the end it was beginning to look like it was becoming an essay (and a boring one at that). So I’m afraid you are stuck reading this.

At least this post is more webloggy than what I had planned. I am not, and do not want to be, Mashable. Also, I seem more able to write about myself than anything else. So, for those of you have read this far, you can probably expect more of this navel-gazing in future. Sorry.

I blame ADHD.

Origins of my Egotistical Evangelism

Sunday is upon us and I have some “wisdom” to impart.

You may wonder what the title of this blog means. Sur Cette Roche. It is, in fact, a bad pun. According to Google Translate it means Upon This Rock an hilarious, and obscure, reference to the fact that I grew up attending an evangelical Baptist church.

From what I remember, apart from one particular event that I may write about in the future, the religious element of the church kinda went over my head a little. By the time I was old enough to make my own choice about attending I had no belief or faith in the existence of God, and at that point I suppose I became a non-theist. The one thing that I have absorbed from my time amongst God's flock is the spirit of evangelism, so much so that I constantly have to keep a check on how much I rave on about certain subjects, especially Apple. Luckily for you, dear reader, I will leave the coverage of the saviour of modern computing to the much more able John Gruber. That being said, this blog may at times degrade into non-evidence based proselytising.

Oh yes, and apparently I look like Jesus.

Hello There

Hello there, welcome to a public repository of my profuse pretensions. I will apologise in advance for any potentially tortuous prose.

At this point I probably should tell you something about me. The problem is, when I express what I believe about myself, I change to make that expression a falsehood. Meh. Anyhow, to be lazy here is a, non-exhaustive, list:

You will be more able to divine my personality by checking out my Tumblr, FriendFeed and having a gander at the blogs I'm subscribed to (which you can find somewhere on this page).
