Thanks, and I'll See You in the Funny Papers

No more posts. This is it. I'm not Mr. Rogers, or Carol Burnett, or Douglas Adams; no clever farewells here. Since I announced that Pittsblog would be shutting down, I've received several invitations to guest blog from time to time at other blogs around Pittsburgh, and I may accept some of those. (Is that a threat or a promise? You decide.) It's not the topic or the audience that I need to leave behind; it's the time that I invest in blogging that I need to recapture. I may appear here and there in the future, but not all on my own. One person even suggested that "Pittsblog" is a brand that means something. I'm not so sure about that, but I appreciate the thought. This blog will stay up, of course, as long as Google permits.

In general, I appreciate everyone who's read the blog over the years, whether from time to time or regularly, and I especially appreciate those who took the time to comment. I know well that lots of people didn't agree with me (even earlier today!). Thanks to everyone, including the last group, for taking the time to pay attention -- even briefly. Writing and corresponding here has been a lot of fun for me, and I've learned a lot (whether or not you can tell!). You can still find me in the blogosphere at Blog Lebo (our little microcosm of Pittsburgh -- really -- down in Mt. Lebanon), and at my law-and-technology-and-other-interesting-things blog, co-authored with a bunch of fellow law professors, at Around Pittsburgh, my proto-entrepreneurial interests will get expressed through a new program in entrepreneurship that we're working on at the law school at Pitt. Look for more early next year.

With that, I'll sign off. Here's a Joe Grushecky video that I like. It has nothing particularly to do with me, but it's a lot of fun. And it seems to capture a spirit that a lot of people think of when they think about the best of Pittsburgh. I really do like this place.

Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.

Good luck!

About Pittsblog

Updated September 2020:

Pittsblog 2.0 was written by Mike Madison, a law professor at the University of Pittsburgh, from January 2004 through December 2011.

Since then, Pittsburgh-themed essays have appeared from time to time at, on law and technology, and in some of Pittsburgh's classier professional media venues.

Chris Briem of Null Space drops by Pittsblog from time to time.

All opinions expressed at Pittsblog 2.0 are those of their respective authors and of no one (and no thing) else, least of all the University of Pittsburgh.

Pittsblog 2.0 has a motto: "It's steel good in Pittsburgh." Say it aloud, with a Pittsburgh accent.
