Why Blog?

Here is the first post by Calum Henderson, on a blog.Keyboard

In mid-semester break of semester 1 in 2009 I stumbled across an article about twitter and usernames. Basically saying that you should sign up for your name now while it is still available. Made sense to me, so I scored twitter.com/calumhenderson. Then I started using twitter, and got a bit excited by the possibilities to share ideas immediately with millions of other people (even 100s would do fine). I then talked to a guy at my church called Dave Miers, and he has thought a lot about this stuff (see his blog here), and he also encouraged me to get a blog.

So over the past month I have been considering it, and I will be testing out this site for about 6 months. Sharing ideas about education, technology and life, all with a Christian perspective. Doing this so that there can be a collaboration on these ideas, and also for personal reflection and collection of my own thoughts.

Hope you enjoy it…

    Hey Calum! Cool to see you’ve started blogging, I’m sure it will have some good interesting reads. I’ve got a similar blog I’m doing with friends from church, although we only post every once in a while. Hope it goes well and I’ll be sure to check back! Blessings. – MattyC

    Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your blog in Chrome, it
    looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it
    has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a
    quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!

    We will enter the 21st century with wristwatch-style phones and
    specialized, handheld wireless computers. Article Source:

    Using this correction factor, the model estimates
    that approximately 21,000 total cases will have occurred in Liberia and Sierra
    Leone by September 30, 2014. A small price to pay is worth it if it sets a trader up just a little bit.
