First I got rid of IJSM.org, my first toe into having a Web presence. I first registered that domain 17 Jan 2001. A large part of the content on this site originally appeared there.
Then I used a .com for most of this space, and a .org with the idea that I’d write some code and give it away. For a while there, having a Web presence meant having a bunch of blogs. I think I got up to six before I started to pare down.
First imperfectmirror.org was merged with IJSM.org, then the pair moved into the .com, and a new IJSM reborn; then IJSM.org was paired into the .com, and recently, the .com and .org were silently merged.
There was a time when all of this made sense in my head, but none of it does anymore. One place does.
I remember a conversation with the inimitable Noah Grey back in like 2003. He wisely said, “You may tire of that domain name”—meaning IJSM.org—”but you’ll never tire of being you.” He was right.
So it’s all here under one roof. I’ve mapped things over and left forwarding addresses. I’ll hold on to the domains given that they have my name and that I don’t want them poached by a spammer or used for weird purposes.
I’ve used this domain name as a home base in thousands of links since 2004 or so. It’s truly home. Welcome.
