Within a couple years the author had various web pages as well.   The current ones are at and   Along came a new concept as we entered this century - blogs.  A blog is an interesting cross between web pages and web forums.  This one is a work in progress, as all new things are.  But there is a common theme back to 1980 that lives in this blog - communication, education, community, discussion, learning and growth online. 

This blog shares a mission that Glen's other websites do - education and help: letting the average person access legal services at a reasonable cost, learning how to do some of the needed legwork when one has a problem and learning more about the law as well as the world around us.
