*taps mic*

Well, that was the longest radio silence we've had in a while.

I don't know if this is really even a platform anymore, but there are some things I've been meaning to write, and I guess for now this is as good a place as any.

A lot's changed. Len killed himself, and deleted his LJ before he did it, so I can't even refer to him like I used to. Eventually this place may just still feel too alien; I guess we'll see.

I'm working in natural language processing again, which is sooner than I was planning on, but I'm enjoying it -- and indirectly working with martian_bob again, because life's cool like that.

Things change. Ain't nothin' like it once was; not a goddamn thing.

Goodness it's been a while since I've read that. Would make good lazy-Sunday reading this weekend.

Hear ya, loud and clear. It's good to see you back here. I feel something between awe and solemnity seeing that you've made the step.

I think this is a great place to write, if you want to share longer thoughts with an audience who's up for it. Twitter is so discombobulated. Heh. I sound old. FB is shallow and it's easy for the social mix there to get complicated in a way that eschews diving deep into the personal, as does FB's revolving privacy policies.

Anyway, I'm here. I'm listening. I enjoy your mind and have missed you (and Len) in this forum.

Things definitely change. I'm goin' through summa that myself. Trying to work on processing that. The Buddhists are onto something with their be down with impermanence and detachment thing. Easier said than done, but doable with work. It has brought me some peace. Need to dip back into it.

Assuming the Russians don't kill it off with Facebook-wannabe redesign, LJ is still one of the best long-form writing platforms I know of.

I'm still here. Reading, at least. May come back since Google is making me want to stop using G+, since they're so good at making it clear they will kill their babies at will.

You two know each other? Of course you do, the world is the size of a peanut.

I'm still here too. I read daily but haven't posted in forever. So good to see your face again though!

This reminds me I keep meaning to prod you to chat about what you're up to with natural language processing (and just to catch up!) (I've also just realised it's just a week or so short of a year since we all headed Islay, too!)

I'm still working on an NLP related project, though currently on a startupy thing of my own (in concert w/ my friend Alex,and w/ aiding and abetting from Giles) rather than on the (relatively) properly paid contract with someone else's startup (they and I parted ways in December :-/ )

I'm mostly reading on LJ and posting on G+ these days, but it's good to hear from you.

Glad to hear you're working in NLP again.
