Hello, I’m still alive!

Given that there are more than a hundred million blogs out there, it would be rational and modest of me to assume that nobody is ever going to read this one. OTOH I’ve had quite a few emails since I temporarily shut down my Cyberlife Research website, from people asking me what the heck is going on. And before that I had even more emails telling me to get up off my skinny ass and update my blog more often. So maybe somebody will eventually read this message in a bottle. Maybe pigs will fly and the world will be filled with everlasting peace, too.
My site has been down because I (and the people who are dearest to me) have been going through something of a personal upheaval, none of which is your business. As part of all that I now live in the United States instead of England, and so I needed to reorganize my web presence (as well as having to learn to write “reorganize” instead of “reorganise”).
I currently have two AI-related projects on the go: a game called Sim-biosis, to be published by Cyberlife Research, and a humanoid robot called Grace, as part of a new venture called Grandroids. So what Sara, my web programmer wife, is going to be doing over the coming few weeks is reinstate the website at www.cyberlife-research.com as a place in which to keep my archive of old Creatures and Lucy material and set up a new website at www.sim-biosis.com to promote and document my upcoming game. Sara’s also working on www.grandroids.com for our robotics project.
But that left me in a quandary about where to put my personal pages and non-project-related jottings. So I decided to get all “Web 2.0” about it, join the modern age at long last and start a personal site/blog here at WordPress. The other websites will have “official” project blogs for the game and robot, but I’ll be putting the more personal items about those things here, plus random blogging and all the vanity stuff about what a wonderful person I am.
I hope you’ll drop by now and then, but in the meantime watch out for those low-flying pigs.
