It is high time for cynics like myself to eschew any misgivings about joining the free-for-all of cyberspace.
Arguments and values dear to me such as circumspection, low profile, avoidance of anonymous arenas, show-offs, pseudo-opinion-makers and other wanna-be personae, rejection of delusions of grandeur and attitudes of self-importance, and contempt for the futile, shallow, ridiculous or frivolous, are not being abandoned.
Rather, the point seems to be: if anyone can utter crap in public nowadays, why shouldn't I contribute with my own brand of bulls..t?
Jesting aside, I have been made aware that blogging can be, if taken intelligently, an interesting endeavour in communicative action in the public sphere, a way to establish a worthwhile exchange of ideas.
With your help, I hope to achieve a measure of 'elevated' discourse.
I will, from time to time, post a few notes on subjects which I deem to be mentionable, while striving to privilege topics of relevance to my hometown Macau.
In lieu of Portuguese, my mother tongue, I have decided to write in English as a means to reach out to a wider audience.
Please feel free to criticize anything that I post on my blog.
