I guess now is as good a time as ever to start a blog. There have been many instances when I have come close, but today I purchased a domain, signed up on typepad, and now I'm writing the first post. I've got several years of notes, thoughts, and ideas scattered throughout multiple pads, books, and sheets of paper that should get me started. They range from advertising and trends to politics to simple random thoughts that occupy my head. The goal is to start new conversations, keep old ones alive, and encourage some good old fashioned debate. Feel free to read, comment, and share.
