Goodbye World

This is not a suicide note! :-)

The time has come to say farewell to this blog, my homepage for the past 6 years.

Fortunately, this ending leads to a new beginning in my new blog: leonardoflores.net.

For a brief narrative of the goals, design, and purpose for this blog, including reasons for ending it, read “Hello World 2.0.”

Even though this blog’s entries live on in the new blog, this space will remain as an archive, frozen in time for however long Edublogs is maintained and as long as it doesn’t pose a security risk.

Thank you for visiting!
