If you’re reading this, you probably already know who I am. and, in fact, this website is really here for you. (in the sense that I wouldn’t have brought it back if people hadn’t mentioned missing it. I missed it too, albeit in the abstract.)

so this is the third incarnation of my personal website, in terms of major discontinuities. I guess that makes this the cenozoic era of wockerjabby. no archives from the past 13 years are public now, although they still exist and I plan on keeping them intact. they are the fossil record of my third decade on earth.

you can leave me a comment, if you like, by clicking on the title of the post. I haven’t decided whether to make comment links public or what; in this environment of feed readers and problogging there is something about them that makes me feel a little uncomfortable and sad, but at the same time, stealth comments kind of lose their functionality.

I’ve been having a pretty good summer so far. there are two big things that I’m hoping to finish before school starts in september: chapter four of my dissertation and a t-rex robot. it’s still early enough in the month of august that I’m  feeling optimistic.

  1. Lynne:

    I’m glad you’re still around.

  2. Amanda:

    Yay! Hi!

  3. Leah Bean:

    Yes, definitely! So glad you’re back! 🙂 And I like the design too. Simple, clean, stylish.

  4. Andrea:

    Yay! And belatedly, a very happy birthday to you!

  5. haya:

    the world is happy that you are here again.

  6. mom:

    what’s a t rex robot?

    I’m glad you’ve decided not to abandon WJ.
    I think I’ve been reading you since 1998 (ouch), making you in a way part of my own internet history. Your way of writing has always been enjoyable to read for this foreigner.

    Thank goodness I decided to poke my head in after over a month of silence on your RSS feed, or else I would have missed this entirely. Goes to show that we’re (or, at least, I’m) becoming slaves to the automated content-at-your-doorstep web with its baskets full of new blog posts and which friends to poke. Sometimes it pays to pay someone a visit.

    I’d be really sad to celebrate 10 years of blogging without your blog still around to have the occasional crossover with 🙂
