I began to write “reflections” in 1997. Some were about visits to an IBM customer, a university campus, or just to reflect on some issue of the day that struck me at the time. The Reflections were not an attempt to be profound…. just to share. Needless to say, this was a precursor to blogging. Some of the postings in patrickWeb are based on reflections but eventually they will all get edited and moved to the blog for posterity. Some of this is also in my book, Net Attitude. The index to Reflections from 1997 to 2002 is below or you may read through them sequentially by going here.
