My regular readers will know that for years, my blog has gone neglected.  When I started my blog back in 2002, the blog platform, pMachine (which is now known as Expression Engine) was the top-of-the-line in blogging products.  As the platform got older, I kept putting off updating my site, delaying the inevitable.  When I finally found time to move to a new blog platform, I discovered that it would be very difficult to simply export my blog to WordPress, the new platform I’d chosen.  So two years ago, I embarked on a bold journey – to go through every single one of my posts – all 4,500 of them – and throw out those posts with dead links, or update those I still wanted to keep.  Crazy, I know.

Fast forward two years, and I’ve only had time to import about 1,500 of those posts into the new blog platform.  And frankly, I’m tired of waiting.  So today, I’m officially unveiling the new, improved Inter Alia – take a look around and kick the tires, and let me know what you think.  I plan to add the remaining posts to the blog in time, so eventually the blog will have a fully curated set of posts back to 2002.

One thing that I won’t be doing anymore is publishing the Mighell Marker, formerly known as the Internet Legal Research Weekly.  I just don’t have time to do it anymore.  I’ll be working on posting the entire set of Mighell Marker issues soon, and I’m also looking into ways to provide a newsletter-like experience from my blog posts.

I’m excited about the changes here, and I hope you are, too.  Thanks again for being a reader!
