Building is a slow process requiring collaboration with dozens, or even hundreds, of consultants and builders.

Writing, on the other hand, is usually a solo activity and, even given the struggle some of us have to craft words, is relatively fast. We write because we are impatient, because we have something to say, and because not everything we have to say can be said in 3D form.

However, the pressure of the blog is relentless. Every day something may strike us as worthy of comment, but formalizing those views daily is a discipline few possess.

So our blog will be nonlinear, undated entries longer than a quip and shorter than an essay. Easy for us to write and even easier for you to read.

Kind of win-win.
