blogging schizophrenia

On the one hand, there’s value in having single-topic weblogs that can provide links and commentary on a specific issue. On the other hand, it’s really hard to try to split my thoughts into topical areas and post them to different weblogs.

So the quiet here isn’t just the insane travel schedule of the past few weeks, it’s also the cognitive challenge of figuring out how to be a contributor to Many-to-Many and misbehaving.net while still maintaining my own site.

I suspect that this will get easier over time. I may end up “cross-posting” items between the two sites, or I may simply get a better sense of what goes where.

At any rate, I’m here in Monterey, where it looks like it’s going to be a beautiful day. I stayed up late last night so that I could shift time zones more effectively, and woke up a little before 6am PST. I missed the sunrise, alas, so I’ll probably get up a little earlier tomorrow.

My talks aren’t until Tuesday, so today will be spent grading student projects and then exploring Monterey a bit. Tomorrow and Tuesday I’ll attend conference activities, and Tuesday night I’ll fly back home. I’ve got a four hour layover in SFO…any experienced travellers know of open WiFi networks there, or particularly pleasant places to sit and work for a while?
