Forgive me, Internet, I have sinned.
It has been six months since my last post. So much has happened since then that I have wanted to tell you about.
And I tried!
Oh, I tried, several times—I have the WordPress drafts to prove it. But somehow anything too large for a tweet ended up a five-page essay with footnotes.1 (I would have written less, but you know how it goes.)
So. Let me be very brief:
- I finished my doctoral studies and got my degree. You can read my thesis if such things interest you.
- My son turned one year old. He is awesome.
- My wife, The Boy, and I now live in the Boston area. We love it here.
I am still interested in research topics, including distributed systems, security, and social networks. I also continue to maintain my Mac software on the side. These pursuits have taken something of a back seat to the above bullets, however.
Now I can start making notes (of the longer-than-140-character variety) again. Thanks, Internet, for your kind indulgence.
No, seriously. ↩
