Outkast- The Love Below (Intro)
Welcome everyone. I appreciate it if you’re checking out my blog because I made you. I especially appreciate it if you’ve stumbled upon it by yourself. Since a lot of blogs suck, I’m going to do whatever I can to keep your attention. I’m accompanying each post with a song I find appropriate to each article for extra entertainment. Think of it as background music while you read. It’ll give you a taste of the music I’m into and who knows, I may even introduce you to a new artist you’ll enjoy. Anyways, here are the reasons I am writing this blog:
First off, writing hasn’t been my hottest skill, so this blog will hopefully help me work on it. I’m going to work on the simple skill of spitting out a thought or two into writing without spending the whole afternoon drafting it. So if you don’t like my writing, tough. It’ll get better with time.
Second, some of you know about this little “project” Eric and I have been “grindin” on. Well, we are getting close. Get ready, it’s basically going to rock facebook to the ground. It’s gona chew up all those tweety bird things (my humor isn’t for everyone, so if you’re taking everything I say seriously in my posts, this site may be better for you). We’re going to take over like h1n1 at a preschool out of purell. Anything I feel like saying about the entrepreneur in me will be posted here, so check it when you want to hear how we are running havoc.
Thirdly, there’s a need to bridge the exclusive tech startup world into mainstream culture and society. Technology is huge in all our lives, but besides the programs everyone uses, there’s very little most people know about tech and startups. I’ve quickly learned that the tech world (google, twitter, facebook, startups, all that computer stuff) is an extremely exclusive community of braniacs who like to keep to themselves, but an interesting one nonoftheless. There are hella blogs and articles written by tech whizzes for tech whizzes, but what about the rest of us? What about the rest of us that don’t get off by writing code and getting good SAT scores? My goal is to bridge the geek fraternity of Silicon Valley to the rest of the world. I want Marcus the frat guy, Christie the aspiring entrepreneur, and Dave the angel investor reading this blog.
Because I am not a computer whizz, I have non-electronic interests that I will write about as well. I’ll often post about whatever shit pops in my head. This stuff will normally be about my other passions and interests, which include music (hip hop), eating, backpacking, and life. My blog is basically going to be a mixed bag of goodie posts, so get ready to be surprised.
