Tomorrow is oook blog's fifth anniversary, and what a long strange trip it's been. Dunno how to assess the blog's significance, since I have a constitutional aversion to conventional measures of "success" and I abhor counting hits or whatever. When you come right down to it, I've always thought of it primarily as a means to keep track of my changing attention (my magpie habits) for myself, and secondarily as a conduit for keeping informed of my doings the 20 or so people I think might be interested. Beyond that, I'm happy to occasionally discover that somebody has happened upon a posting via a search, or that some friend has pointed somebody to a posting.

I'm thinking about converting over to Word Press, but I don't have sufficient faith in my own geek skills to start the process. I've also thought of making some sort of Fundamental Change in presentation style or content, but I don't really have any positive reason to do that... so I think it'll probably just limp along in its increasingly vieux jeu format.

Thanks, oook, for the many fascinating windows on all sorts of worlds that I'd never have peeked through without your blog. I look forward to more of your great culls.
