Mildly Malevolent

On second thought, I've decided that I'll do essentially all of my blogging at Gnostical Turpitude for the foreseeable future. I can imagine updating this site with more personal entries from time to time; I may revive it when I spend a year in Russia, writing travel log entries describing my experiences in Moscow and the provinces. I've decided, however, that I prefer blogging at GT (with Movable Type) than blogging here. The format works much better and more smoothly, and I prefer writing short essay-style entries (which is easier outside of blogger). I've also found that I'm less likely to kill time looking for links when I only post an entry filled with links every day or two. (My usual modus operandi here was to sit at a computer, with some work to do, doing the work and occasionally browsing the web for interesting sites; I've been more effective at compartmentalizing my time since the switch to Gnostical Turpitude, since before the move I'd occasionally get stuck in a rut of looking for good links and not finding them.)

My plan at Gnostical Turpitude is to write an essay-style entry or two a day, with another entry (consisting of a set of links with very little commentary) every couple days. So if you come to my blog to look for links, that will continue. Should you not like my current plan, feel free to email me and say so--I don't think I'll change my mind, but I'll be interested in hearing.
