A typical day in the life of a writer - picture by Nikon self-timer - 1995
Welcome to Joe Breskin's Personal Library - where I sit in front of a big screen and write.

You can find other stuff I have written through links on my Homepage, my Music Site Breskintunes, my Business site Joe Breskin EnviroSearch or linked off my Resume.

Or get involved in a dialogue by writing to me at airstream@olympus.net

Whenever I can stop talking or doing stuff for other people long enough to get what I am thinking about down in writing, I am a writer. Some people like the way I write, others don't. I can accept that more readily than i can change it. So, I have given up on trying to second guess readers. I would rather just find people who I can connect with and manuipulate them. Most of what I have written since 1995 has ended up in email, rather than in my journals. I have not written anything for publication in several years. I do not know if I want to change that or not. I spent much of this summer figuring out how to create an HTML based multimedia encyclopedia that allows me to share knowledge with other people more efficiently and more effectively than I can at this point. It is a really big project.

Random Observations

We began doing science in the vain hope that our hypotheses might die in our stead.

But somehow we ended up fighting to the death, defending them.

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself.

Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

-- George Bernard Shaw
