Had you asked me at any point during the last sixteen years about my plans, I would have mentioned something about earning a PhD. It is a strange thing to walk away from a goal that has, for so long, structured the shape of one’s thinking about the future. But that is exactly what I have done.
I’m tempted to wax introspective about this, but I think I’ll resist. Frankly, I’m not entirely sure that I would know quite what to say at this point anyway. It was, as you might imagine, a difficult decision–among the most difficult I’ve had to make–and, under the circumstances, I have as much peace about it as I could reasonably expect to have.
So there you have it.
Many of you have been reading this blog for awhile and you may remember that it began alongside my course work nearly seven years ago. I’ve appreciated the support and encouragement many of you have given along the way, so it seemed only natural to let you all know.
As for the future, I’ll continue thinking and writing about technology as time allows, on this site and elsewhere. I’ll be pitching essays and reviews here and there. This site is getting a bit of a makeover in line with these newer goals. And, as time and resources allow, I’ll be working to make something of CSET. I’ll keep you apprised on both fronts.
