I'm Michael, I've got something to say
Hello, world. I'm Michael. Once, when the Internet was young, there were "personal websites". This one's still alive! Since 1998 I've made this site the home of my public writing. I've written about writing a novel, and have posted one of my short stories. I've written about launching a business that failed and creating a custom version of Dungeons and Dragons to play with my kids. I've written to remember the dead and about being the crap-spattered target of birds.
This site runs on a content management system that I wrote. I'm just that. much. of. a. nerd. To paraphrase the immortal Van Halen, "I'm not like this because I have a website, I have a website because I'm like this." I decided on a new domain name in 2019 to amalgamate my personal and professional sites.
Nowadays I find myself writing about my projects and hobbies. Oh, and work—but I don't do that here.
