Default Hello World!

<p>Hello Readers! My name is Michael Knutson, and I'm excited and honored to be a new contributing editor to Laptop Thoughts. I started out studying and practicing&nbsp;print journalism about forty years ago at San Francisco State University, when high-tech meant an IBM Selectric typewriter. &nbsp;It was portable: was this perhaps by definition an early laptop? I discovered computers shortly&nbsp;thereafter, and haven't looked back since. I'm currently working in Information Security, and develop web sites in my spare time. I have a variety of laptop hardware&nbsp;and software in my office in Corrales, New Mexico: a MacBook Pro, a Lenovo Thinkpad X100e, and a Lenovo IdeaPad S12 netbook. &nbsp;My&nbsp;personal philosophy regarding technology is "use the right tool for the job," regardless of its origin, so I try to avoid fanboi-ism and flame wars - when possible. I look&nbsp;forward to helping the Laptop Thoughts team inform you, the readers, and I'm sure that I'll learn a lot from all of you along the way!</p>

Thanks guys! A few months back AMC's website had a design your own avatar based on MadMen, so I built myself one, and it works! My wife did one for herself as well, and she uses it everywhere!

Ah, so the Martini must be JUST out of the cropped area then.
