Yesterday I installed a WordPress plugin that echoes whatever I write on the Internet Time Blog to my professional blog at jaycross.com. I don’t feel comfortable interspersing zany, off-the-wall, political, and hobby stuff with professional interests, so I need a new place to vent. This is it.
Henceforth, anything that pops into my head is game for posting on the Berkeley Diet.
di·et 1 (dt)
1. The usual food and drink of a person or animal.
2. A regulated selection of foods, as for medical reasons or cosmetic weight loss.
3. Something used, enjoyed, or provided regularly: subsisted on a diet of detective novels during his vacation.
I’m going for this third sense of the word diet. To get things rolling, here’s a photo from my birthday on Thursday. I have these regularly. In fact, it feels like they are coming closer and closer together.
I’m going to experiment here with a process I use on the private blog I keep for recording half-baked ideas. Instead of thinking of this blog as a chronological day-by-day posting, I’m sometimes going to post on a topic and continue to add to the post over time. That sort of structure enables me to explore ideas incrementally.
