“I was told there’d be ponies” is the web home of Allan Brauer. Allan had the misfortune of being born a generalist in a world that values specialization. He is still waiting for the world to appreciate his talents. It’s been 52 years so far, but Allan still holds out hope that his broad attention span will pay off sometime soon.
The blog title refers to that vague sense of disappointment when reality fails to live up to expectations, especially when those expectations have been artificially inflated by hype. In other words, it’s about life.
Allan blogs about whatever interests him. At any given moment that may be: politics; LGBT issues; theater, music and the performing arts; or a shiny object that just caught his attention.
