@AlanRalph I’ve always been geeky but 2003-2007 that geekiness was a lot more genuine, it was purely for the love of the tech. It was pretty much all Microsoft based (Exchange, SharePoint) as I ran my own network and servers at home and hosted my own blog.

The shift to focusing on social and the journalistic approach to blogging (2008 and after) really changed things and, looking back, was more a false approach compared to the joy and naivety from the earlier blog.

There are now elements of the two but both more refined and genuine.
