Heading into decade 5

The past 10 years, upon reflection, have been pretty interesting (in that Chinese proverb kind of way). Thanks to the blog, events of at least 6 of those years have been reasonably well documented.

Among the notable events:

Like previous decades, 4 had ups and some big downs (which are not documented), not unlike the economy. Heading into decade 5, PhD work will probably dominate the first half, although I'm looking forward to a lot of other fun things to go on as well.

So far it's starting off on a pretty good note.
