Business really boils down to rather fundamental things: people and relationships.  People can help each other (hopefully); influence each other; and in the worst case, exploit each other.  Businesses can also do all of these things, which in the end makes a business very much like a person.

I would like Active911 to be a good person, and in that sense I think some level of transparency is fitting.  I’ve kicked off this blog so that we can share what we are doing and what we are thinking in a way that is less formal than the rituals of business require.

There is another goal, too, a more personal one.  I’m not very good at keeping notes, or at least journals, and I think it would be nice to have a place to store my thoughts and refer to them later.
