The Heretic

heretic |ˈherətik| noun: a person holding an opinion at odds with what is generally accepted.

For quite some time now I am somewhat dissatisfied with my communication modalities. I either blog or tweet. Blogging feels somewhat heavy-weight, as I tend to want to get it right. I research what I want to talk about, I spend time writing a draft, re-read it many times and eventually hit the publish button. Twitter on the other hand is often limiting - I can't express what I want to say as I have to squeeze everything into 140 short characters and the sheer fleeting nature of a tweet also often doesn't feel right.

So I will try something new (well, for me at least) - I've set up a small email newsletter: TheHeretic.me

The idea is that I will publish once a day (or less - as I am lazy) something which caught my eye, made me think, something interesting, funny, insightful (we'll see about that). You can reply to the newsletter and we can have a dialog. It's a bit like a raw brain dump. Not quite a blog post but more than a tweet.

Join me for the ride and subscribe. Let's see what comes out of it.

Oh - and before I forget: The stuff you will read on the newsletter are strictly my own opinions. Don't construct any relationship to my employer or any other projects I work on. I don't call it The Heretic for nothing. :)
