So this is the second time, I’ve created a blog. The last time, I blogged something stupid, and ran on my merry way, never to blog again. I thought if history is to repeat itself, then I better get a few things off my chest. I’m sure these have been blogged before, but it still doesn’t make me any less infuriated.

AJAX does not equal that cool DHTML thing

Just add some Ajaxy thing there to make it cool.

– Final Last words of my previous Product Manager

So Ajax is a programming technique to communicate with a web server without a page refresh. Such a wonderful technique that allows for windows like functionality on web pages. (Just talking about Ajax kinda turns me on–in a Billion dollar way). Thankfully for my AJAX fetish there are thousands of posts out there for AJAX, so I don’t have to rehash whats already out there.

But that doesn’t alleviate my disdain for the ignorant mis-use of this acronym.

Why do I blog?

I just wanted to get this one out of the way quickly. I’ve recently determined that I suck when it comes to writing. My thought process is very jumpy, and curt. So I’m looking to get into the habit of writing more and hopefully it will make me better at the portions of my job that require me to write.

Getting to vent into the void of the internet isn’t bad too.
