Writing for the New Web
Let’s see. I need to write something for the Welcome column. I guess eventually it might get posted online, which means I’m writing something for the new web.

Better yet, I’ll try to find two or three searchable topics and amalgamate them together into one title. I’ll need to make sure some keywords that echo those topics are embedded in the title and somehow peppered into the contents. I’ll start with a pithy introductory sentence:
