Welcome to Beachhead.
This is our first ever blog attempt, and up until very recently we were somewhat skeptical of the entire operation.
The plan was originally to create a magazine, of the holding, opening, and reading variety. But then, as is so often the case in this new world we live in, it became eminently clear that to create anything in the physical world would be prohibitively expensive. And so it goes.
Hence, the idea was born to utilize this fine, free service, wherein we have the ability to range throughout the wide world of internets, picking and choosing other people's hard work with abandon, beholden to none.
But what about? What about indeed.
Let's just say that the exact focus of this "web log" will be somewhat fluid, at least at first. In the meantime, Beachhead aims to be a nexus for information regarding that most human of inventions: the city.
We'll be posting news about those subjects we believe affect, influence, and inform the city in general, and our home metropolis Seattle in specific. This includes, but is not limited to, new developments, the ongoing transportation saga, art openings, art closings, business news, immigration rights, professional sports, music news, rivalries, and anything in between.
The one common thread that all our posts will have is that they will all deal with the issues that, collectivley, make up the built and mental environment of Seattle and cities around the globe.
We hope you enjoy.
