Thanks for the Greetings

THANKS to all those who sent us warm greetings, gifts, and surprises. Some made cards for us, others created decorations, and some are working on yet more surprises (there are 4 more wedding-related parties planned, culminating next year). We will post more photos in the coming weeks (hectic as we have lots of work). We also have an overview in this Web page. Here is a collage of some stuff we received.

Dedications

Here is one of the several digital greeting cards we received (there are more on paper).

Dedications

Over the next few days we’ll assemble about 1,000 wedding photos and gradually release some.

Back to Work

AFTER nearly four weeks of vacation, wedding, etc. I am back to work and I am eager to show through my research & activism that nothing has changed in my professional life. I am as dedicated as ever before to the cause of technology rights and freedoms. Moreover, combining family life with the rest should be possible given compartmentalisation and correct division of time. I am fortunate to have found somewhat who is so like myself, including academic background and mentality.

Post-Wedding Photos

THE vast majority of the photos have not yet been gathered (4 separate cameras, including some truly professional one), but here is a preliminary set of some photos taken soon after our wedding on Tuesday. More photos are to come out and be published soon. There are also more parties planned.

Happy Birthday, Rianne

TODAY Rianne celebrates her birthday and next week we start our next vacation. In September we get married and then I will take my longest break from the Internet in years, perhaps in a decade. So although this blog is likely to be quiet in September (the same goes for Techrights), I am still fine, just celebrating two important things with my Other Half.

Although this blog is personal, I rarely open up about my personal life in it. My experience — as well as others’ says that trolls (and sometimes just people with adverse/opposite opinions) tend to distort what’s claimed to attack the messenger.

Dream Circularity

Stone spiral

THIS MORNING I was dreaming that I was dreaming that I was dreaming. I woke up several times, at different times, but only within the dream (or the dream about a dream), only to falsely assume it was a particular time of the day. The level of circularity was never quite so high and I took these notes after I had woken up.

I was so relived when I woke up to realise that I was dreaming about dreaming, but then I was still inside one layer of dreams and it took me quite a while to wake out of that. Confusing, eh? Anyway, dreams are a mysterious side of the human mind. They are said to have a purpose in the sense that they train our neural model of expectation for particular possible scenario, e.g. being chased by an animal in our primal past.
