*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.

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.

It seems like a lot of the people I appreciated most are still around, and it's a platform I'm comfortable with. This helps.

Totally.

Let's hope not!

Dreamwidth is the same basic codebase, but without the stupid Russian management. I highly recommend it.
