Me (Sebastian) holding a 22nm Intel wafer at MWC

After three years and nine months, with more than 2,100 of my own stories written and published — about 140,000 words in total, I reckon — and hundreds more freelancer stories edited and published, I am leaving ExtremeTech and Ziff Davis. It has been a wild ride, propelling a property that had almost faded into obscurity back into the limelight. As I leave the site, I am deeply proud that there are now several million readers who check in regularly…

Seb, at Cape St. Vincent, Europe's most southwesterly point

Hello. If we haven’t met before, my name’s Sebastian. Why yes, I am mighty tall and very hairy, thank you for pointing that out! I used to blog rather prolifically around these parts, but after being hired to be a full-time senior editor for a technology blog this site dried up sharpish. When you write all day every day for a living, it’s very hard to continue writing in the evening. After I finish working, in fact, writing is usually…

For the last few weeks of our 52 Weeks project, I will be putting our collaborations both on the project’s dedicated site, and here on the front page of the blog. I figured lots of you might not have seen the project, or even heard of it, and the year is almost at an end! Ach, time goes by so quickly… Also, you will notice the side bar change when you’re looking at a 52 Weeks entry. That’s kind of…

I’ve been busily working on some changes to this blog! Nothing ground-breaking, just… tweaks. First, I’ve cut down the sidebar a little. Now it links through to a few of my favourite tags (on religion, on sex and girls, on culture, etc.), and a handful of my favourite blog posts. Second, you can now buy photos from this blog! I’ve created a gallery with almost every photo in — and on select photos throughout the site, when you click on…

Are you ready? Things are going to change around here. I’m not quite sure how yet, but I thought I’d get it out in the open – that’s what blogs are good for, after all. Things are… different. In my head. Thoughts aren’t lining themselves up in the same way they used to. It’s unnerving. It’s hard to explain, to you, when the right words won’t come — it’s a bit Catch-22 like that (the book, incidentally, still lays unfinished…

[In the olden days I used to always have punchy, interesting titles on my blog entries. Funny how that's kind of died down. I wonder if more people would read if I try to be sensational...] Yesterday I began an epic journey of introspection self-actualisation. I’m trying to digest 2009 by labelling the major milestones or stand-out points as good, bad or ugly. I actually made a list on paper (I was in the car), and I couldn’t actually come…
