Hello All!

Well, Hello everybody, and namely those regular Metblog readers. I figured I’d slip in my “hello” under the radar of the “holidays” (and aren’t there so many of them) to all those dilligent readers who don’t have the local “use or loose” and are stuck at work this week.

As a slight introduction, I’ve been a DC area resident off and on since the early 1990s (enough to see the changes), and have firmly ensconced myself in the various roles of the area (single/married, non-profit/government/private-sector, scene-ster/old-guy) and have come to love all that was, is, and can be DC. I hope the folks here will tolerate the new/old blood. I’m not sure I’m the regular mold folks may be expecting, more of a lurker than a pontificator but definitely somebody who has something to say now and again.

I accept Tom’s and the rest of the DC Metroblog’s staff challenge to come up with those pithy three articles a week and hope my perspective on the area, it’s life, culture, and of course, politics, may be fun and entertaining. Glad to join the team, and hope to see you all in the “bitsphere” in the coming weeks.

For those of you who chose to click the “read more of ‘Hello All!”… the second half of the fold on the page will give you some background on where I’m coming from.

I’m a music and movie loving guy who’s employed (currently) helping our government make heads or tails of their computer security conumdrum. As with Tom, I’m a life-long (except for the early 80′s where I had a Commodore 64) Mac fanatic and technologist. I’m a fan of well brewed beers and good food and even better company with the food and beer. (I used to be in B’more… so DC has a lot to live up to! … or not)

I’ll probably skew my posts here towards the weird, bizzare, and odd in DC and around the web. It may seem like you may have “seen” something I’ve posted before, but hopefully may add a bit of perspective on what you’ve read. I’d love to see a thread of comments (reminds me of my days on USENET… before AOL had access) with some lively debate and chatter.

Once again, glad to join the “club” and provide you with yet another obscure voice on the sights, sounds and tastes of DC…

Computer Geek, Music Junkie, Movie Fanatic, Beer Aficionado, Part-Time Amateur Photographer… Amélie has lived in D.C. off-and-on for the past 23 years, always calling the National Capitol region her home. She’s also probably one of those types of odd-folks with realms of useless trivia you’d like to have on your side during a pub quiz.
