About… Welcome to Trivial Smoke! My goal is to sift through the noise of the Internet and provide a catch-all site for various topics of the day. And while I’ll occasionally comment on articles, I’d much rather provide the links, and let your time be better spent keeping informed. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy a good discussion, but I’ve never been much of an essayist. I gather more edification from pointing folks to things I find relevant, and enjoying their observations. I welcome your ideas and suggestions. Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org!
