Truth is shorter than fiction

I want my blog to have three qualities:

  • Quality, because the only noble goal for a blog is to improve the signal-to-noise ratio of discourse.
  • Sincerity, for the same reason.
  • Regular updates, to not lose either of my readers.

Consequently, I am going to try a new blogging format: exactly five sentences, at most one image and at most one code sample.

    I already became accustomed your current style. While probably raising the global blog SNR by an indefinitely small \epsilon, I find it sad if the future posts will be shorter. Then again I’m interested in how it will feel to read those extra-condensed articles.

    Yours truly,

    You don’t need regular updates, because we know how to use rss

    Thanks for the feedback. I am nevertheless going to try the new format.

    My real intentions for the change may be more complex than what I can describe in five sentences.

    Also, sometimes I may need to add a filler sentence. Or two. ;-)
