Davos Newbies Home

My admiration for people who maintain daily or near-daily weblogs has soared in the last few months. Having kept up Davos Newbies for about two months, I let it lapse into long hibernation.

Part of the hiatus was because my energies were diverted to my other (my “real”) media outlet, World Link. But it was also because of a natural break in the Davos cycle itself.

Perhaps I waited too long, however. Having intended to resume regular service in the autumn, I found that my regular service was no longer required for the Davos programme. The good news is I don’t have to go to Geneva every week. The bad news is that I really loved doing the Davos programme — something I hope came across in Davos Newbies.

I don’t intend to let the site lapse, but I certainly won’t have daily tidbits to feed. I’m going to try to compile some of the knowledge embedded in the site in a more user friendly manner, so if you want to know, for example, what to wear in Davos, you don’t have to search through my January 2000 postings for the details but can cut straight to the chase.

My weblogging, for the moment, has moved largely over to the World Link site, which will also crosslink to Newbies.
