There it is. The "Hello World" post. As far as I can tell, it’s the way these newfangled blog things are started. Hell, the software I’m using to do this filled the title in for me. Very kind of it, that.
"Hello World" has been around since 1973 (Wikipedia’s "Hello world program" entry). I know this because, well, because I looked it up on Wikipedia. Also because I’ve been doing the whole "Hello World" thing for a while now, and it seems the natural way to start this sort of thing. It’s comforting to know that the tradition that comes along with new endeavors in my field is older than I am. It makes the whole thing feel solid, grounded.
So there we have it. I’m Corey. I write software. This is my blog. Enjoy.
