This blog is a collection of my own random musings. I have a professional blog at www.agilecoachjournal.com and a professional website at www.moonriseConsulting.com. But sometimes I want to share thoughts outside of my work life. So here we are.
I brainstormed for years to find a clever name for this blog. I had lots of fun ideas but all of the domain names were already taken. Then one day I shared some ideas with my wife. I mentioned my fascination with fractals and recursion and things that repeat, how I always wondered about these questions:
- What do you see if you put two mirrors together facing each other, scratch a small hole in one and peek through?
- What color is a chameleon on a mirror?
These are examples of “infinite regress”, defined in that modern source of all wisdom, Wikipedia, as follows “an attempt to solve a problem which re-introduced the same problem in the proposed solution. If one continues along the same lines, the initial problem will recur infinitely and will never be solved.”
And it was my wife who put 2 and 2 together to give me a name for my scattered ramblings: infinite digress. I then stalled a long time to create the site just out of stubborness because the name was not my own idea. Stupid me.
