Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day - coming soon to a web page near you

So . . . how does one start one of these things anyway?

Ready. Set. Go! *insert long silence here*


Maybe . . . Go, go gadg-

What? That won't work either?


I guess I’ll have to do this the old fashioned way.

I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a little while, and about a week ago when I read John Scalzi’s reply to Dr. Hendrix’s webscabs rant about publishing professional quality work for free online, I thought, ‘What the heck.’ I might as well create my blog in time to post something.

It's official, as proclaimed by Jo Walton the first International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day is on April 23, 2007.

So here it goes. Blog Started.

If all goes well, by the 23rd I’ll have talked my brother-in-law, The Professor, into contributing. I would post something myself, but at the moment I’ve written nothing that would qualify as 'professional quality work'. And no, the 1st Draft of my 96,000 word fantasy novel doesn’t count. (Thanks for asking anyway.)
