Unforeseeable changes in my professional life have consumed the time and energy that I was previously dedicating to this blog and related efforts. While these changes are positive for me overall, I am struggling to even watch the spaces of forecasting and global catastrophic risk mitigation let alone contribute to them. More life changes on the horizon mean it’s unlikely I’m back in the next year or so, but I do hope to return to this and related projects eventually.
A brief retrospective…
I posted something to the blog every week for about 3 months. All of those posts represented meaningful work from my perspective, and I think each was either an effort to more clearly collect and communicate relevant information or an attempt to start building something new that I thought would be useful. I’m proud of this output for this timeframe, but obviously wish I could have sustained it for longer. I did not find the opportunities for collaboration on projects that I was initially hoping for, but I’m optimistic that these would have come with time.
My biggest cause of regret is not fulfilling the commitment I made in my proposal to continue this blogging effort until September. Two investors contributed a combined $1,000 based on that stated goal and the expected impact of my work. I’ll be reaching out to them individually to offer a refund of that investment.
While I’m away, if you find any of my work on the blog interesting and would like to discuss it, please still leave a comment on the post or reach out to me on Twitter. I’ll make time for a chat.
Thanks for reading.
