We've Moved!


Hi everybody! Look where I am, over here in Bloggerland! Why have I abandoned the mothership tomdevine.net? Well, the old girl sure was a reliable vehicle for adventures in innerspace, but it just didn't have all the bells and whistles required by the blogosphere in its current evolved state.

For example, there was no way to leave messages. Yes, you could send me an email and I would print it, and many people did, but frankly that is too much like the now quaint practice of sending letters to the editor. People don't want to be filtered by an editor, even one as wide-minded as me. Peoples want to say what peoples wanna say, and they don't need no stinkin editors standing in the way. So I'm stepping out of the way by coming here to Blogger where you can leave all the messages you want.

There is other neat stuff too, like RSS feeds and permanent archives and perhaps a blog roll if I can get around to it plus who knows what other innovations that will occur to me as I master this new format.
So enough talking about changes and let's start doing them. Tomorrow sometime I'll put up the first new post about what I intended to put up on the old blog and see how it plays out on the new one. There may be a few bugs to work out but I expect no major problems.

So until then, I leave you with this video by my buddy Jay:
