The thing that happens next in my life is all about this blog. No, that’s not a metaphor, that’s in fact the case.
I need to get the archives integrated, and merge this with my “home page” and resume stuff somehow. It pains me to leave out all the behind-the-scenes content (for example, the 2011 blog had a massive, complex Drupal backend into which I poured research notes, quotes, citations, papers, and a million other things, more advanced than anything DevonThink has ever put together) but that’s too massive a conceptual task to figure out. So I’ll get all the old public material integrated, and merge it with my persona content.
Then, I need to sit down and have a long, long read. A read of myself, what I’ve written. My own path.
Somehow, I feel like that’s the next step. I’m turning 40. It’s the right moment. Time for a personal life-in-review before I try to figure out what’s next.
It will take a while. Already when I printed this out once in 2005 intending to do this, it was about 1,100 pages. Now it will be longer. But it is what it is. It needs to be done.
