Because to keep up with the pace of change, we need to change, too.
Okay, that's bullshit.
I've changed the name to more accurately reflect what this website is. These are notes, not essays. I've stressed from the beginning of this blog that anything that appears here is by definition unfinished -- it's certainly unedited and sometimes merely nascent, hoping someone else will pick up the idea and run with it. My greatest writing efforts must, by definition, go into my job as a writer. This is what's left over.
I've also had a tacit assumption that perhaps a miniscule amount of this stuff would be re-worked later into a usable, professional format.
I think the name change will help remind me, and the readers, what you're reading.
