PermaLink A Lotusphere Diary, 2012 -- Day 001/15/2012 04:10 AM
Have you ever licked a nine-volt battery?

It's that time again.

Many of you have read literally tens of thousands of words I've written since the old days, the Gonzo Lotusphere days, and you know that I am sparse with my writing now. I'm much older, sicker, tireder, much more prone to saying "fuck" even when the subject is store-brand paper towels and yams.

Well, all these years later, here we are again.

I admit to all of you that yes, I am indeed older, sicker, tireder and in need of the recharge that Lotusphere has provided me since I first came here in January, 1995. I sure as shit needed this boost this year.

Well, here I am.

I tweeted about my conundrum when I was around Mile 308 on Interstate 95, coming south at a high rate of speed, on my 17th solo driving odyssey out of 18 Lotuspheres. If you missed it, what I said was, essentially, "here's where I go from being The Turtle to being The Turtle playing a character called 'The Turtle.'"

I've done it to myself. A lot of you know me beyond that. Some of you young ones do not. Yet. And oddly, as I learned again tonight, some people who have "known" me for more than a decade never figured this out. It's OK, y'all; I'm not easy.

I think I'm worth the effort.

Tomorrow afternoon, I will introduce another class of first-time Sphereians.

I am unsure if I will ever do it again.

Read on.

Wait, sorry... @Command([ReadOn]);

Hang in there buddy. I need your comments and babble to keep me in the loop this year.

Hopefully we will be able to get together at MWLUG or IamLUG this year.
