Welcome to my Blog

This is part of an ongoing series based on the principle of 'learning in public'. I don't plan on writing anything groundbreaking for now, I just want to get in the habit of writing about what I do for a living, what I'm learning, and things I find interesting. I write about, in no particular order, web development, Blockchain technologies, including NFTs, the Metaverse, Machine Learning and AI generally.

As I gain more knowledge (and frankly confidence), I plan to write about books and articles I'm reading, perhaps providing reviews, as well as tech trends I find interesting (or troubling - we certainly have no shortage of that).

For the moment, I plan on putting up articles as I write them, but soon I will add categories and tags, creating separate pages for each category. Then . . . commenting.

I used to blog quite a bit, as was the trend in the late '00s and early '10s, when social media still allowed for such things like small-fry bloggers such as me. When social media was still seen as a force for good (Oh, how naive we were). One of these blog still exists at: https://livefromtheheygate.blogspot.com/. For the other, I will eventually put up selected posts on my writing site at: https: timbeckett-writing.com.
