Hello World

No really, Hello World. My name is Kenneth Feldman and I’d like to introduce myself.

Instead of emailing my friends and family each time I see something interesting out here on the Internet, I figured I should just make a blog.

I’ll have pictures to look at, links to interesting and useful things, answers to life’s easier questions, and news about what’s going on for Michelle and me.

It’s nice to meet you.
