The Future is Now... Finally!

Welcome to my blog. I know I'm rather late at entering the blogosphere, considering I supposedly think about the future, but I figure the 50+ million blogs (if Technorati is correct) that have blazed a trail before me have made the path a more comfortably worn one by now. Usually, I take the path less traveled by (because it does make all the difference), but in this case, considering my ambivalent relationship with computers, the more user-friendly those pathfinders have made the blogosphere, the happier I'll be.

My website went live today. You can find it (and me) at www.pj-manney.com. Neither my website nor my blog would have existed without the hard work and patient guidance of Russell Rukin, my net sensei, artist extraordinaire and friend. Thanks, Russell!!!

So why have I joined every man, woman and dog on this planet by adding yet another website and blog to the net noise? Because I need a venue to write and correspond about the things that fill my head regularly: futurism, human enhancement, accelerating technology, the singularity, as well as literature, movies, television, fine and decorative art, social and political issues and the interplay between them all. And because, for my sins, I'm writing a great big, bloody book and input is output.

To sum up, I am not afraid of what the future holds. Life will unfold as it will. However, I do think we need to be proactive about what we want the future to be if we hope to get as much out of own 'big adventures' as we might wish. I hope you enjoy the ride as much as I do.

Yeah finally! Actually it was all very straight forward... I only have a few grey hairs now, not enough to waste the dye. Maybe a rant about how more computer power needs to be diverted to making working with computers easier would be appropriate.

Cheers Russell
