Once I was informed of the Sun's plans to start this blog, I had only one question for my boss: What the heck is a blog? It sounds like something that requires a surgeon's scalpel and a biopsy. I have to admit, I don't usually read these things, but I'm hoping there are enough people out there who will. And feel free to join in, though I can't always promise that your responses will appear on my site. (Some free advice: Avoid any e-mails that include the word "sucks," unless you're referring to Kyle Boller).
