Moving on…

December 5, 2007

[UPDATE: see Marc Eisenstadt’s Google Profile for best info].

Hi all:  As you can see from the dates, I’ve stopped blogging and phased out of most online social networks (nothing personal – I enjoyed blogging, Twitter, Facebook, etc etc, just wanted to focus on other things…)

One exception, where I do find it useful to keep an up-to-date overview of a few of my activities, is “Marc Eisenstadt’s LinkedIn Profile”.


Day 3 of new life: blog break time

December 4, 2007

OK, I only lasted a few days on this (migrated site) blog, but actually I’ve been ‘doing it’ (blogging) for almost 5 years now. Yikes.

So, it’s time for an indefinite break from blogging, Twitter, Facebook – the works; it’s been great, and I have met many fantastic people. Heh, it didn’t take me long to realise when ‘migrating’ from my academic blog site to this (private) blog site that by bulk-copying everything, I made it far too similar, and that’s not actually what I want to do! It’ll be easy enough (maybe) to beam back in when I’ve either changed my mind or got something to say.

Many thanks again to all my wonderful friends, colleagues, and random readers!

Days 1 and 2 of new life – busy

December 4, 2007

Very first thing I did on Monday 3rd Dec was brew myself a nice fresh cup of coffee, and sit in the living room and listen to some old vinyl 33 1/3 RPM LPs. Not because I’m a nostalgia buff: I did it because it really sounded great! Sure, I’ve also just purchased a pile of music from the iTunes store for my spiffy new iPhone. Like I’ve said before in “LP/MP3 si, CD no“, all-digital is great for convenience, and vinyl is great for feeling the disc and reading the cover – and it can sound great too. The sooner I see the end of CDs, the better. OK, back to some chores – don’t wanna waste the day online!
