Archives are useful tools for remembering the past and learning that we sometimes repeat ourselves, or that we can perhaps avoid making the same mistakes again. Organizing Chickenblog archives has been fun and bittersweet. It's not an easy experience to remember what we built and what we left behind. Life is so full of opportunities, risks, chances, fortune and folly, and when can we know that we are following a right path, a safe way? We can't. But there is some likelihood that we can find patterns, see signs, recognize indicators and learn a thing or two. I know where my blessings are, and for other dreams my crystal ball this evening is made of Ben Stein's archives.
