Surprisingly, more valuable than most people think. Speaking from a reflective place, it’s a look back at where we’ve been; what we’ve done; what we cared about.

I wish I’d had this perspective 10 years ago, rather than getting caught up in all that personal branding shit.

The blogging I did on the old site about community development, marketing, learning, and knowledge management (, and playing with cars) helped me explore ideas that interested me. It helped shape my thought processes over many years.

I really wish I’d known then what I know now, but we can only change the future, right? Que sera sera.
