Under (Re)construction

I'm alive, just haven't updated in ages. If anyone is still reading, template updates are in process and updates to links, lists, etc. should follow. EDIT: No, the colors won't all be this dark when I'm finished. I also expect to be mucking around with templates / formatting a fair bit. Don't freak out.

I'm here!

Can I suggest that you don't use such a dark background for the main text column? Something lighter would make it a lot easier to read. (And the love of fucken all that is holy, please don't use light text on a dark background!)

CPP: Hey! I never said the template/color stuff was finished, I was just experimenting today with some of the new layouts they seem to have added. Believe me, you're not missing anything if you find the current color scheme difficult reading-wise, because there's nothing new other than this "under construction" post. Rest assured this isn't EIW's permanent new look.

You survived the transition from dificult to mundane-ish (if we have engineering degrees). I remember that you wrote of the brightlights of living. Perhaps a story of how you made it to home-building?

I like this way it looks now! The subtle light greenish background is coolio!

Dear Anne,

I am sometimes sad that your blog feels like it has significantly slowed down in the last couple years. I am also grateful that it serves as an archive of many interesting essays and links that I can and have shared. I hope that you might appreciate how this blog turned me on to many issues of ethics, longevity, the dynamics of transhumanist community, and the discussion of neurodiversity--I started reading this in high school and later went on to major in the philosophy of science at Brown. I have also worked in programs for tutoring autistic children and your influence led to a complete re-wiring in the way I approached them. Currently teaching English / in between undergrad and grad school, but I found encountering this blog to be formative and wanted to share.

Best,
Sid

Sid: Thanks for commenting...I've been doing fine as far as my actual life goes, but this blog hasn't been a significant part of it for a while now. Nothing bad happened; I just got really busy and fell out of the habit. That said, I just posted an official hiatus announcement in case anyone else was wondering what the heck happened. I didn't think it was necessary for a long time because, well, in general I tend to be surprised anyone cares to read my writing. But I'm glad you got something out of my past posts, and with any luck someday I'll get back to more regular posting, though I wouldn't expect the range of content to look like it did in 2008.
