Why the Jameson Diaries?

I’m not an alcoholic.

The Jameson Diaries was the first thing that popped into my mind when I decided to write this blog. It is my favorite whiskey, yes, but I have a bottle at home that’s been piling dust for the last four years… And that’s something I am proud of.

I am, among other things, a screenwriter (correction: now in IT). I do web-design and I run a company with five other partners. When somebody asks me what I do, I say screenwriter… It sounds cool and it’s something, I’ve been told, I’m very good at. I am, more importantly than anything, opinionated and curious about many things in this world. This could be the reason I’m a good screenwriter and, to think of it, the day you stop being curious is the day you give up on life.

I mean, think about it: there are 7 billion people in this world, who share thousands of beliefs, who experience millions of things… You get the drift?

I’m interested in many things, but I am mostly interested in technology and movies. I am a borderline fanatic of these two subjects and they make up a great portion of my life. Of course, my family comes first, but then again my family is none of your concern. But what made me create this blog is my main problem with blogs: they are always about… SOMETHING. I just want to express myself! I don’t want to review the latest Apple product or the latest James Cameron flick, I want to share something cool about it. If you don’t find it interesting, I feel the need to repeat myself: 7 billion people, thousands beliefs, millions experiences.

Which brings me back to The Jameson Diaries. I am not an alcoholic… I just took something I like (and sounds cool) and named my blog after it. MY – EXPERIENCE.
