See this episode on the new Buddhist Geeks site.

I started this section of my site in 2003 (or there abouts) with the following words: " My focus is not on rituals, symbolism or gods, but on " the path " that Buddhism points to and its vision on the nature of our every day "reality". Texts on the nature of the Buddhist path , texts on the nature of reality in Buddhist philosophy (see voidness, emptiness and sunyata ), karma , and texts on the relativity of our thought and mindful meditation . " At the time I was not a Buddhist practitioner.
