on­go­ing is short for “ongoing frag­ment­ed essay” or in the com­mon par­lance a blog, launched in Fe­bru­ary of 2003. The uni­fy­ing themes are Truth, Tech­nol­o­gy, and Busi­ness. My be­liefs on this trio are sum­ma­rized by the notes la­beled Truth, Biz, and Tech, and (I hope) re­flect­ed con­sis­tent­ly in ev­ery oth­er frag­ment ap­pear­ing at on­go­ing.

At many we­blogs, the ba­sic unit of struc­ture is a day's dis­course. While I have no prob­lem with this, on­go­ing is com­posed of en­tries which ide­al­ly should stand more or less alone and are oc­ca­sion­al­ly ex­treme in length, and thus ap­pear on­ly in sum­ma­ry form on the front page.

Any­one who has a plat­form for dai­ly vent­ing is sub­ject to temp­ta­tion to dai­ly vent­ing about things that are at best ephemer­al; and al­though this is one of the charms of the uni­verse of we­blogs, I'm go­ing to try not to.
