Co-blogger discovered

In the next few days, Signifying Nothing will be gaining a new co-blogger: Brock Sides. Brock met more than enough of the desired criteria to qualify; I’ll leave it to him to decide whether he wants to specify which ones.

Brock, like me, has led a relatively interesting life; he started out as a philosophy grad student, and is currently working as a computer administrator in Memphis, Tenn. He’s currently the president of GOLUM (pronounced like “Golem” from Lord of the Rings), the Linux user’s group in Memphis. Brock’s somewhat to the left of me ideologically, but he shares my (perhaps-not-always-met) goal of keeping the tone relatively sober.

I hope you’ll give him a warm welcome and I think he’ll be a great addition to the blog!

BTW, this doesn’t mean the search is closed; I’m (we’re?) still open to adding another blogger or two. Just as long as this place doesn’t start sounding like The Corner (ideologically or cacophonically), I think we’ll be OK!

And, there’s also the side project, which I’m preparing to fully roll out in the next few days after I’ve invited a few additional contributors.
