I’m a kind of a late early adopter. New technologies are cool, but I try to make sure they are actually useful (to me). I ignored MP3s until someone finally made a decent player. I continue to ignore XML and XSLT because there’s no Mac environment that does approximately what I want out of the box. YAGNI and DTSTTCPW say that it’s better to tweak my existing custom solutions as the need arises. Hopefully by the time I need the Right thing, the Right thing will be more mature. Thus, it’s not a surprise that I’m also late getting on the blogwagon. I’m not sure how good Movable Type is, but I decided to give it a try. So far it seems to be easy enough to use that I won’t be discouraged from writing entries now and then.
