I'm traveling a lot lately with my little Nokia N800, called Loki. At home, I use regular desktop applications. Now, I'm exploring a Google-verse.

In some ways, this worries me. Microsoft wants to buy Yahoo. Yahoo, started by folks who think like librarians, has been a trusted portal for me. I'm not sure how I feel about Google yet; their superhub status, the aggregation of data, and what I rermember as their historic willingness to share information with the intelligence community could lead to the kind of Big Brother spying I think we need to avoid.

On the other hand, I have no international conspiracies to nurture.

So there it is. My first post.
