My good friend and grad school buddy Pandu Nayak recently started a blog. He has a higher ppd (posts per/day) than I do and the posts are on a variety of topics (you'll never get bored).
Pandu and I often IM each other (mostly for coordinating critical issues such as espresso consumption). I think the next step is for us to get MySpace accounts, and then we'll be Web 2.0 compliant. Who knows, maybe with such openness, our children will consider talking to us when they become teenagers!
