If you read this then I was successful in opening the blog for a test run among friends and colleagues. It is currently open for invitees only, in order to tweak and fine tune it based on YOUR feedback. So please, let me know what you think by way of comments or e-mail.
At some point I plan on going public with this blog, so your feedback is very important.
EDIT: Unfortunately, Google does not allow for a personalized invitation message, so I fear the more security conscious addressees will never reach this message. Ironic, eh?
