Hello world! What seems to be such a trivial sentence is maybe one of the most significant ones we will ever say. According to Wikipedia it’s “one of the simplest programs possible in most programming languages” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hello_world_program). But there have been a lot of Hello Worlds! before and after programming. I mean, each time a baby is born, what sentence would you associate with its first cry? Wouldn’t it be something like “Hello world, here I am”?
So, it seems that “Hello World” announces the start of something new. A life, a program, you name it. Well, then this blog shall be the start of something new as well. What it will be the start of? Honestly, I don’t know (yet) but time will tell (as time has often done before). It’s not that I have a concrete idea of how this blog will evolve or what it’s gonna be about.
All I know is that it will be about life; life and all that affects life (the good, the bad, the crazy, the normal etc.). Maybe this can explain the name of this blog (the idiosyncracy of life in words) a little bit. To put it in a nutshell it’s all I find worth writing about in the course of my life.
I guess this is all I have to say for the first blog entry of my life. My fellow blogger (a big HELLO WORLD to you;)) will explain her motivations for our starting this blog herself (or at least I hope so). Oh, by the way, my motivations were that I always wanted to have a blog, preferably with someone else. Now, as both conditions are met, it’s off we go.
