A New ‘Days’ Dawns

Welcome to the new, and surprisingly unchanged, Halcyon Days. In the past week, I’ve successfully migrated over from WordPress.com to self-hosting. (This gives me considerably more freedom to customize readers’ experience.) Additionally, I’ve programmed a little Facebook application which automatically updates my (not your) activity feed with new posts. Finally, I’ve done a little bit of work on the Halcyon Days page on Facebook, and integrated a Like box (that thing on the right hand side) into the site.

Unfortunately, there is one category of data which did not migrate over: statistics. So, I started yesterday with 0 all-time views on this site, which was a blow to my ego. But, below I have a list of my top 1o most-viewed posts. I encourage new readers to browse through the Archives, which you can do from a widget on the right.

As I mentioned elsewhere, I wear a lot of hats. Currently, I'm interested in VC data, early stage startups, and journalism. Previously I've been a blogger, designer, researcher, startup founder, (temporary) college dropout, connector, occasional branding designer and amateur chef.
