Unlike other web properties I've had on Blogger, Radio Userland, Live Journal and MovableType, I have never felt I could walk away from this weblog. It's become my turf and the voice heard at Inside View is mine and mine alone. Some readers trust my voice while others would rather go somewhere better suited to their tastes or to their interests.
I remember the first original oratory that I wrote. It was in the mid-1960s. I transcribed every word spoken by President John Fitzgerald Kennedy at his inaugaration. And then I spoke every syllable in his Massachusetts accent. His written text spoke to me in my mind. I had written what I had spoken.
At the end of this current year, I believe some of the content on this blog will be my spoken word, transcribed by Dragon Naturally Speaking, edited by me, and published on this blog. If you're interested, you should check back in mid-December and see if there's a category called "spoken" as a part of Inside View. It should be interesting listening on iTunes or a quick read here.
