Hello, Dreamwidth!

Despite the backlog of entries imported from LiveJournal (numbering in quadruple digits), this is actually my first true post here.

I created this journal in 2009 as a placeholder, but never used it until now.

With the LJ servers moved to Russia in April, I finally bit the bullet -- as so many others have done -- and closed down my permanent account there. The end of an era.

Looking from my posts from years past -- particular the 'heyday' from 2004 through 2010 -- I found myself really missing the interactions of LJ before the tumbleweed and mothballs set it. It would be spiffy to build that up again here.

That said, it's going to take some time to settle in, customise the size, and make the place my new 'home'.

Before I get going with a proper update, I find myself wondering: Who is actually here?

(Or, to quote Roger Waters, Is there anybody out there?)

The icon photo for this entry was taken fourteen years ago today. August 8th 2003. That was the day that I successfully defended my PhD thesis, and Nomad evolved into Doctor Nomad.

Fourteen years. Wow.

Fast-forward to the present: Today, I have three PhD students of my own (with a fourth starting in October).

Life is good.
