Wow Brandon -- way to set the bar high. As if there isn't enough stress in deciding what to write in a first post. Asshat.
Anyways lets get on with it, shall we?
I would like to welcome everyone who reads this to pop.pol.tech. Like Brandon touched upon in his earlier post, we aim to have this blog be some strange intellectual lovechild, situated at the intersection of tech, politics, and pop culture.
Why those three? Well, it is because after two years of college, those are the three areas of interest we both agreed are critical to our lives. As students, as individuals preparing to go out into the world, hell just as people, those three aspects of life have influenced us. Who we are is in part due to their impact on our lives and as such, it seems fitting to have a blog dedicated to chronicling just that.
My hope for pop.pol.tech is that it provides a place for folks our age to come and comment on what we see going on around us. I believe that it is important to critically analyze what affects us, as we transition from childhood into what is aptly called 'real life'. Yet above all, I want everyone to have fun. I want everyone to enjoy themselves while they're here. After all, isn't that when the best conversations take place?
So take a deep breathe, relax, and keep an open mind as Brandon and I jump down the rabbit hole.
We'll see you on the way down.
