My name is Geoffrey Barker. I am simultaneously ‘very curious’ and ‘easily distracted’. As a result, a number of interests and skills have stuck to me over the years. I have explored some of these interests more deeply than others. Some have recieved more attention to craft or depth of knowledge than others. Still, I wouldn’t say that I am expert in any of them. I am a “serial enthusiast” and I enjoy finding out what it is to do a thing right. Not necessarily so that I can do the thing, just that I want to know how it would be done. Thus, I hope this blog will chronicle my current and future interests (and maybe save me from having to rediscover a thing over and over).
My plan for this blog is to create several blogs within a blog. I’m not yet sure if that’s cool in the blogosphere but this is mostly for me so that’s how it’s going to be. The ‘bloglets’ (I bet I didn’t coin that word) will each cover a certain area of interest in my life. I expect there will be posts related to my profession but more of it will relate to my avocational interests.
There you go! My pretentious home page!
Note, I am still figuring this thing out so give me a few weeks before you start telling me about blank pages and broken links etc. Thanks, the management
