Brissie to Brizzle

Welcome to Brissie to Brizzle.

I’ve been in this blogging game now since 2004 when I followed the lead of some of my friends and started the blog Quantumbiodiscs. In those days I was a PhD student living in Brisbane who was looking for a means of web-based procrastination. Eventually I overcame the distracting powers of TeH intertubes and finished my PhD in 2005, packed my bags and got a real job in Innsbruck, Austria.

Last year I switched jobs and countries and found myself happily inhabiting one of the more drizzly English cities, Bristol. And now I’ve finally given enough background for the title of this blog to start making some sense; Brissie being one of the many nicknames of Brisbane, the town where I grew up; and Brizzle being one of the more common monikers of my current home.

With luck I’ll regularly update this blog with whatever is floating around my head in any given day. For those of you who are familiar with my blogging background you should probably expect this blog to be more Quantumbiodiscsish than LPish, though it’ll probably turn out to be like neither of those blogs.

  1. Hey Mick,

    Nice to see you blogging again! (Yeah, I know you blog at LP, too, but after being a junky in the early days, I saturated and have mostly stopped reading political blogs…)


  2. Hi Mike,

    I guess it’s been a while between posts now. I haven’t been posting much at LP over the last month or so either.

    Isn’t it weird that you can really lose contact with a lot of people by actually participating in real life instead of this bizzare interwebby existence that so many of us lead now.

    Oh, and its nice to see that your blog is back up and running for the new year!
