It used to be that there were rigidly defined areas of doubt and uncertainty in my life. This blog was separate from me. You’ll notice that until very recently, for example, I never appeared. I never wrote about myself. I never mentioned where I work. My politics have always been a big part of this blog, but mostly only as an idea, not as an expression of my feelings. And very few of you blog readers had met me, or knew where I worked. Still fewer knew what I actually do there. (I’m an electronpusher, duh.) I never featured in my videos.
That’s becoming less true. I’ve started to let you folks into more and more of my life. You’ve crept in and changed all the locks on my barrier. I’ve started to meet a few people who’ve read my blog before meeting me. I’ve got a new camera which doesn’t require me to go for bold visual effects processing, so I can show people in my videos. I’ve even (inadvertently, I admit) shown you where I work. (A pushed electron factory, obviously, in South London.)
Why have I done this?
I’m not sure.
But it feels good.
Do come inside.
