Welcome to the new Coffeemonk.com

Virginia RoadThings are looking a might different ’round here, ya might say.

Well, it’s all part of the grand re-tooling of a few of my dormant online projects. I’ve been laying the mental groundwork for this for a few years now, and it all finally congealed in the last six months or so.

I’ve already talked about this so-called identity crisis at some length on my other blog (that would be the venerable bipolar), so I’ll not retread that ground here.

I also should pay homage to the history of this particular site, but I have already covered that on the “about” page. If you’re interested, the old coffeemonk.com site has been moved aside—gone, but not forgotten.

So all that remains here is today, and today coffeemonk.com has become my own personal creative outlet. Discovering exactly what this means will be an integral part of its creation.

In some ways, this site will—at least initially—serve as a catch-all for those things I’d like to share that don’t necessarily fit in with the bipolar shtick, or that require a larger or more open venue than facebook. As I said, the edges will be found in time.

I do have to say that I am very excited about this, and I hope that you are as well.

    This is great, Matt! Reading the “About” page was revelatory; I honestly had no idea what the back story here was. I mostly knew that you had control of a lot of catchy domain names…!

    I look forward to the linux commandline tips! (Okay, probably the other stuff a little bit more.)

    Thanks guys! Glad you’ve enjoyed your first taste of the new site. If you’re not into the linux commandline, I’m hoping the other stuff I’ve got lined up will be more enjoyable.

    It’s funny, when I was moving the old site to its new home, I ended up re-reading a bunch of those old pages, and was pleased to find myself not cringing too much! I really think, if we hadn’t all been so deeply mired in our own shit, we could have made something of it. As it is, it stands as a testament to some great, but unrealized ideas.

  4. Hey, just read this post. Don’t know if you’ll ever see the comment, but wanted you to know that I love you, and I love this site the best of any that you’ve done yet.

    You have my support in all your endeavors, but happy to see that you and I have begun to come into our own. (It’s about time, I’d say.)

    Love you,
