We’re in the middle of marketing efforts here at Win-Vector, and I’ve just spent a few hours going through the Win-Vector blog so I could update our Popular Articles page (I have to do that for Multo, someday, too).

As I went through the blog, I had a number of thoughts:

  • Wow, this is a lot of posts.
  • Wow, we write about a lot of topics.
  • Wow, this is some really great stuff!

I can’t take credit for all that. The Win-Vector blog is John’s baby; he started it way back in July of 2007, and as it’s his only blog, it’s his primary mode of expression (Facebook for cooking, Win-Vector for the techy stuff). He writes more of the posts than I do. But the blog has been good for some of my hobby horses, too.[1]

The excuse for the Win-Vector blog is that it’s “marketing” for the company. And it is; we promote ourselves sometimes: our company, our book, our video courses. But mostly it’s here because we wanted a place to talk about what we care about, and a place to share things we thought would help other people.
