Welcome to Brandin.com:
The Home Of Brandin Grams

If you happened to stumble upon this site through something, welcome! This is why it’s here. You will not imagine the amount of people I have come across in this world related to the things I’ve done, the places I’ve been, and what I do for a living.

I started Brandin.com back in 1999, but didn’t start writing until 2004. Already, it’s amazing to see the stories I’ve written and collected over time. It’s important to log what’s happening in your life, just enough to share it with the world.

As Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of the first website on the Internet, said:

“The idea was that anybody who used the web would have a space where they could write and so the first browser was an editor. It was a writer as well as a reader. Every person who used the web had the ability to write something. It was very easy to make a new web page and comment on what somebody else had written, which is very much what blogging is about. Now, if as technologists develop, we’ve done our job well, the web will be this universal medium, which will be very flexible. It won’t, itself, have any preconceived notions about what’s built on top. One of the reasons that I want to keep it open like that, is partly because I want humanity to have it as a clean slate. My goal for the web in 30 years is to be the platform which has led to the building of something very new and special, which we can’t imagine now.”

…and that is exactly what I’m doing. I hope to look back years from now and see how far I’ve gone in life. If you’re someone I’ve run in to, heck, even if you’re not, drop me a line. Enjoy your stay.
