A large part of the reason for this is diversification away from Google. As much as I love Google for many reasons (and will continue to be a faithful Android user for the near future), I am moving most of my stuff off Google infrastructure.
I’ll write more about the reasons for this later, as well as mention which services I’ve migrated to (email, search, browser, etc).
Please bear with me as I finish migrating all the content and fix up some formatting, images, and such here and there…
Update: Please see newer posts as I have abandoned Octopress for straight Jekyll. Octopress, as it turns out, makes things harder, not simpler.
