may I introduce…
Generally speaking, I’ve tended to be the kind of person who, before starting a book, absolutely must read the introduction, no matter how long and dry it might be. Since you clicked on the link marked “introduction,” you might understand what I’m talking about.
This site has been up continuously since February 2001, when I lived in Minneapolis. The site’s first year and a half was the second half of my three years in Minnesota. From 2002 to 2011, I both lived and worked in downtown Oakland (with a short stint living in Berkeley early on). In 2011, I happily moved to San Francisco with my then-girlfriend/soon-to-be-fiancee/now-wife Dawn: Yay! More biographical info.
My usual pattern of updating this site is typically to ignore it for a while and then post a big glut of previously repressed self-expression. I may change that as of April 2014, the time of the most recent update of this introduction, but I might not.
Gohlkusmaximus.com runs on WordPress blog software. I recommend it highly — it’s free, it’s open source, it’s totally cross-platform, it’s constantly being updated, it’s very easy to install and customize, it’s extremely well-documented, and it’s easy to use once installed. And it has a large community of users and developers who are devoted to keeping it relevant and useful. What else could you possibly want?
Read the colophon (yes, I have one of those).
