Introducing the new

You may have noticed that for some time now, this site has been more and more focused on food. Following my heart has led me to kitchen work (From geek to chef) and then back to more technology (Returning to tech? Sort of…) and now to a technology food combination. Today I'm happy to announce that is going 100% food and that I'll be devoting myself to it full-time.

I'll be updating (week) daily not only with links but also more original content. You can see the new feature section in the upper right hand corner of the home page. I'm going to try to do regular features on a variety of topics. And I'll pursue whatever else interests me in the world of food — reviews of meals perhaps, recipes, book reports. Mostly it's just going to be an experiment, an outlet for me to follow my food passions wherever they take me.

It will probably take a couple days to work out the kinks with the new design, so if you have any problems feel free to email or comment and I'll try to get everything fixed up right away. The non food-related content has moved to and old links should redirect to the new site. I can't promise a lot of updates on the personal blog, but I'm sure there will be some as the non-food urges strike.

Since 1999 this site has been a wonderful outlet for me. It's provided a way for me to learn more about myself, and a means for me to meet and connect with other people. I'm excited for that to continue as I explore the world of food, and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the new

PS If you're reading this post in a news reader, you should really come on over to and check out the new design!

  1. Meg, I’ve been enjoying your site for a number of years and have loved the change of focus to food, an obvious love (and something that I share). Looking forward to the new site and new content. And I dig the new green!

  2. Looks great, looking forward to more food stuff – I’ve been reading much more regularly since the food-centric posts have prevailed.

  3. Fully supportive of your new-found food-focus. And I’m also glad to see that both members of Team Kotknut share a love for the color green.

  4. I like that you picked almost the same green as your favorite bowl for the color bars. Looks good.

  5. I’m glad you’ve decided to go only with food. I’ve enjoyed reading your recent entries on food and I’m excited to see where you go with your idea.

  6. Awesome. I’ve been loving your food content, and it’ll be great to have more of it (and regularly!).

  15. Congrats on going all-food! I’ve enjoyed reading the last little while. When I dropped you a note about Steingarten’s foie gras column I thought “hey, why don’t I write about food?”, and now I’m in the process of getting the pieces in place for my own Ottawa-local (amateur) food blog. so thanks for the kick in the right direction, too.

  16. I think yours was one of the first weblogs I ever read and I’ve enjoyed your writing and change in direction from geek to leek.
    Congratulations on re-launch.
