i'm glad the move is over

First Sterling, Then Gibson 2003 Sep 14

First Bruce stopped his main blog, but he’ll return on a Wired blog at some point, now William Gibson has stopped blogging. He says, and he’s been writing for more than two decades, that blogging takes away from novel writing. I know there are other novelists who blog, Neil Gaiman for instance, so it can’t be a truism. I wonder if there would be circumstances under which I would stop blogging altogether to put my mind on some other project.

So, I’ll miss Gibson, but I take solace that in a week, The Baroque Cycle begins with the 944 page Quicksilver, by Neal Stephenson.
