You probably want to skip this post. It is really just here as filler to break the ice that has accumulated from not blogging in more than two years. I am not quite sure where the time is going to come from to be able to do the writing that I really want to do. However, it continues to surprise me how often I am having a conversation and I get to reach into the old bizcoder blog and say "I wrote a post about that years ago". There are so many topics that I spend time thinking about these days and I write scribbly notes into a OneNote page, or a Word document. Those words just then die in that medium. They are not in a format that is great to share and the fact that I know I probably will not share them causes me to not spend the time to polish them sufficiently to share. It is a vicious cycle.
It is true three women can't make a baby in 3 months, but it also doesn't take 27 months for them to have 3 babies!
Over the past few years, I have occasionally dreamed about what would be my perfect job. Of course it would have to involve HTTP APIs. But beyond that, my background in ERP software leaves me longing for solving business problems for users. My experience at Runscope as a developer advocate reaffirmed my desire to spend time helping other developers. Working with the OpenAPI Initiative over the past couple of years has allowed me to dip my toes into standards work that I have been fascinated with for so long. It’s a curious mix.
