Update 2014-03-07: We have a web page with links to photos, video, etc.
I’ve moved to Berkeley, partly to be closer to the Center for Applied Rationality and interesting people who are associated with it.
Also, please stop using my old rahul.net email address, and use Peter.C.McCluskey@gmail.com instead.
My web page for little known bay area waterfalls now has enough information on it to be worth publicizing, even though there are many more good waterfalls out there for me to find and many ways to improve on how I describe the ones that are already there (videos, gps tracks, etc).
I’ve had a livejournal account for quite a while, but for a long time used it only to comment on other peoples’ posts. But I’ve decided it’s a more social place to blog, and I’ve been making some more personal posts there. I’ve noticed that I am most likely to decide that someone is interesting if that person discusses personal thoughts on the web, and a report that self-disclosure in blogs may help develop better relationships with others helps confirm that I’m not the only one to react that way.
I plan to keep posting my more impersonal intellectual writings here around 3 times per month, but I may devote more attention to my livejournal account than to this blog.
I have starting blogging on Overcoming Bias. I plan to blog there somewhere between once a month and once a week, and I hope to still find time to blog here once a week on topics that don’t fit there.
And note that if you want to see all my book reviews, see Amazon; I sometimes don’t blog reviews of less interesting books.
I’ve switched from b2evolution to WordPress for the software that runs this blog.
I had been planning to do this for several weeks because b2evolution was too spam-friendly, and WordPress seems to have a competent approach to comment spam (holding comments for moderation if they don’t come from someone who previously made an approved comment). I was forced to shut down the b2evolution software yesterday when the load it put on my system became excessive.
I think I’ve fixed all the permalinks to work as before.
