Welcome to Sssimpli. I'm Rob, and I'll be your guide. Let me tell you a bit about what I intend to do here.
The web is an amazing medium- so remarkable, in fact, that nothing has changed the world so drastically since the advent of the printing press. It can also be an insanely confusing place, or a downright annoying hindrance. There's just so much to navigate. Once you become adept at navigating the waters, though, things can start to make sense again.
The web is, truly, what you make of it. If you spend the day searching for funny cats, or the latest Justin Bieber video, or posting passive-aggressive Facebook updates, you won't get much value out of the web, and, quite frankly, I'm not writing for you. If you'd like to use the web simply as a tool to increase the value in your life, that's possible, too. and it's for you that I started Sssimpli.
I know it seems a bit hyperbolic to claim that the internet can add value to your life. It's not. There's an abundance of information at your fingertips, whatever your interests may be. Personally, I happen to follow a bit of psychology, philosophy, politics, literature, design, and general geekery. It's all there for me, if I but know how to find it. Want to learn to play the guitar? You can. Want to learn a new language? Do it. Want to keep up with the latest advances in neuroscience? There are no longer any excuses.
Let me also say that I am not a professional geek. I simply have a passion that I'd like to write about. I'd like to show you how to make the web work for you- how to make it your web. I hope you'll join me. Expect our first post later today. If you'd like to stay up to date with Sssimpli, just click the Twitter or RSS buttons in the top right corner of the home page.
