It hasn't been because I abandoned LJ, rather that I've been too busy to post anything longer than a twitter message or so.
So, important points of the last few months.
I started a PhD, currently part time, at Curtin. I'm studying Internet governance issues, mostly to do with ICANN. I also teach at Curtin a fair bit, which is keeping me busy.
Also, I went to San Francisco for ICANN. I was there for a week and a half, but spent most of it arguing about the Internet or watching other people arguing about the Internet. I did see a speech from Bill Clinton.
I am really pretty busy. But mostly in a good way.
