Couldn’t let 2013 slide away without one more post. This has probably been the biggest, most important year of my life so far. In roughly chronological order, I:
- shepherded Vol. 54 of the William & Mary Law Review through its remaining issues
- graduated from law school and won some awards
- moved back to San Francisco
- studied for, took, and (ultimately) passed the California Bar Exam
- watched an unseemly number of excellent TV shows on Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, etc.
- got married to Claire and honeymooned in Greece
- started my career as an attorney in Silicon Valley
- was admitted to the California State Bar and my local federal district court
Whew. Unfortunately all that activity has left little free time for blogging. I can’t promise that will change in 2014 — not only because work, commuting, and life’s other obligations take up so much time, but also because the need that has always undergirded my blogging is mostly satisfied in other, better ways. I started blogging to create an outlet for my interest in technology and the law. Over the past five years, I’ve been on a path to turn that interest into a profession. I no longer feel a deep need to write about technology law, because I am practicing it everyday. (Not to mention that, as an attorney, I have to be careful about how and the extent to which I express my personal opinions on topics related to clients’ interests). I do hope to continue to use this space for personal updates and other posts.
Anyway: Happy New Year! May you be as fortunate in 2014 as I was in 2013.
