The first Post for RFNJ was nearly 5 years ago on June 8, 2007. I'm not sure what I'd like to say about that just yet, except that it's turned out to be almost nothing of what I thought it would. In many ways I'm disappointed with my contribution to it. But contracts and professional commitments have limited me greatly. I can't write about the things I REALLY know (except in the broadest most general way) because people are paying me to tell them those things. And like it or not I have a family to feed.
With that said though, it's been much better received than I ever imagined, so how bad could it really be? As an analogy, imagine if Ray Kroc the founder of McDonald's had set out to make a really great five star restaurant but ended up with a clown and the ham-burglar instead. He might have been disappointed as well, but you can't really argue with public acceptance.
I have a few more days left before I have to come up with something genuinely profound to say about all this. I'm probably going to need them.
