Taking the Plunge

First post!!!

Ok, so this isn't Slashdot, and I'm not about to launch into some anti-Microsoft/RIAA/DRM tirade. Instead, I'd simply like to introduce myself. My name is John Hann, and I'm a software developer in Portland, OR. In addition to programming, I have a lot of other hobbies including snowboarding, mountain biking, and hiking.

I don't know what you'll be reading here in the coming months, but chances are you'll see posts on life, technology, culture, and maybe even politics. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and, hopefully, you'll contribute a comment or two.

I'd like to thank the folks that encouraged me to take the plunge and start a blog, including Rich, Jason, and Ponzi. The cusp has been crossed, and the best is yet to come. Stay tuned.

Not sure if I met you at the dinner, but always nice to see another Portland geek blogger.

I'm subscribed!

Wow, one day online and I already have a subscriber! I'm honored. I think I saw you at the dinner Friday, but you were at the other end of the table and I was knee deep in multiple conversations. Oh well, I'm sure our paths will cross at some future nerd event. Nice blog, by the way, I'll add it to my iPodder list.
