A new Alfin blog is not an attempt to replace earlier Al Fin blogs. The hibernating family of Al Fin blogs found on blogspot.com were dedicated largely to the idea of “the next level,” and helping the best of humanity to survive to reach it.
Alfin was unable to inform readers of those blogs of their closing in advance, or to provide a link to this blog. Google’s decision to deny administrative access to those blogs made those ordinary courtesies impossible apparently.
Al Fin 2100 — began in the year 2005. Over the years, the original blog hatched a small brood of other blogs, which have come to specialise more or less on particular areas of interest to the Al Fin writing staff. Here is the current set of links to the Al Fin blogs:
Al Fin 2100 “Al Fin” This is the largest and most general blog of the family.
Al Fin 2101 “Al Fin, the Next Level” Tends to specialise in future trends and technologies, but is currently focusing on “The Dangerous Child Method” of childhood education.
Al Fin 2200 “abu al-fin” Focuses generally on political topics
Al Fin 2300 “Al Fin Energy” Highlights energy technologies and trends
Al Fin 2400 “Al Fin Potpourri” Something of a grab-bag of topics, many quite odd-ball in nature
Al Fin 2500 “Al Fin, You Sexy Thing!” Takes a serious and not-so-serious look at sexual topics
Al Fin 2600 “Al Fin Longevity” Topics related to life extension and gerontology
Al Fin 2700 “Al Fin Affictionado” Idle for over 2 years, focused on fiction. Waiting for rejuvenation
