Last of the Mohicans

I started this blog about 14 years ago in mid-2002, when the world of the Internet was young. On a whim, I thought I’d look at the Wayback Machine which archived the site (then hosted on Blogspot) in July 2002. Amazingly, some of the links still work, and some of the posts are still relevant today. On the other hand, I don’t think anyone on the blogroll is still going as an independent blogger. I’ve been a bit slow lately, but it looks as though I’m the last of my kind.

  1. Well, you just prove that an individual’s independence is, in a sense, of critical importance for a social democractic perspective.

  2. Thank you JQ. You rock as they say.

    Even when you were so wrong and unfair about Julia Gillard, I appreciated the integrity of your reasoning and analysis. 🙂

  3. Congratulations, Prof Q. I think of all the debated topics where the issue has been decided in favour of your analysis, from global warming to the invasion of Iraq, and all those impassioned posters for the other side have fallen blessedly silent. Well done!

  4. Indeed that’s well done. But don’t think it entitles you to retire: once a Mohican, always a Mohican (though maybe a Cherokee would have been better – say Sequoya ?).

    And anyway, “a bit slow” is how one keeps going after all this time, yes ? Besides, it’s like the older lady and her poster says: “I can’t believe I still have to protest this …””

  5. First got onto you via Crooked Timber…my first entree into Oz politics was the fab film, “Don’s Party”, and curiously enough things haven’t improved much since then.

  6. In the internet age JQ blog is thousand years old so may you continue to pepper the other elders of the blogosphere with your insightful stories …
    Cheers

  7. Well done. The broader fields of discussion and the permissions on lengthy discussions and reader initiated topics are what makes this blog different and better than most. So JQ, please don’t forget to put up those sandpits and longer discussion issue entries. 🙂

  8. Congratulations on the mile stone and well done JQ 🙂 I really value this blog and your posts and the community of commenters your blog has fostered here.

  9. Thanks John – I’m very glad you have the time and impetus to continue blogging!

  10. A genuinely important achievement. Will be even when you hit the 20 year mark.

    I think it’s still very valuable to have this site to refer to – including some of the older posts.

    There are a few of the old group ones soldiering on here and there – but I am sure you’re the oldest and the only remaining individual one that I know of.
