Elaboration is apparently very important

I was quickly chatting with some friends over dinner tonight and the topic of my blog came up. These are some pretty smart guys but their overall comment on my monthly summary was, “I have no idea what the hell you were talking about.” I guess after several years of digesting and distilling data I had thought I had provided a summary short enough not to be boring but long enough to have some information. It seems some background information is going to be in order however. I’ll be trying to correct that in upcoming posts.
