I am protomech, and protomech is me. These are my thoughts.
Why blog, indeed? Aren’t blogs, like, 10 years ago?
Perhaps. But writing well, or learning to write well, never goes out of style.
1. Collect my thoughts. I write in various online fora, sometimes in more detail than appropriate to the forum in question. It would be convenient for me to collect my writings in one place where it is appropriate to explore in more detail.
2. Write more efficiently. I often fall into the trap of writing in unwarranted length. Writing concisely is an art worth pursuing.
3. Show my work. I will try to work out my calculations so that they can be easily followed, and mistaken assumptions can be identified and corrected.
4. Further reading. I plan to link the best accessible resources that I find helpful.
