A new year. Always a good time to take a look around and see what needs updating. It was painfully obvious that my blog needed a face lift. So, I officially announce my newly refaced blog.

Aside from the template change, I've changed the name and URL of my blog as well. Originally, I had an idea for where I wanted to take my blog that made sense under the 'cmssphere' name; but, as I've looked at where my blog has really gone, I realized the name just didn't fit.

The Software Maven

Wikipedia defines a Maven as
...a trusted expert in a particular field, who seeks to pass his or her knowledge on to others.

Of course, only time will tell if I can gain your trust, but in the mean time, I'm certainly up for trying to pass on my knowledge to others on the one field I actually know something about: software.

As the name implies, software will continue to be the primary focus of this blog: how do we get from an idea to dollars in pocket.

First, no, I didn't spell it wrong.

Innerbrane might be a pre-fledgling, not-quite-conceived, perhaps soon-going-to-be company. As my newly tooled "About the Software Maven" states, I've become engaged in developing a massively multiplayer online game. Innerbrane might, just might, become the vehicle for that. If not, it might become the vehicle for something else.

In String Theory, brane provide an anchor point for certain kinds of strings to connect to. Lots of facinating things come out of the math from them, but the one I like the best is that the entire universe is a holographic view of strings connected to a brane that surrounds the universe (please remember, I am the software maven, not the physics maven; my pseudo-understanding comes from popular science reading :). I'm hoping that I can find some connate relationship in the gaming world.

Even more beautiful is that I can change the name and URL of the blog without affecting you at all. I hope you enjoy the new look!
