Everything Must Change So That Everything Can Remain The Same
Posted by M.H. Forsyth
Update: It may have worked.
So said Giuseppe di Lampedusa in The Leopard, which is, incidentally, one of the greatest novels ever written.
This comment on the politics of the Italian Risorgimento sprang to my mind because, in a fit of opulence, I have bought the domain name inkyfool.com and I'm going to switch over to it. Today.
My plan is that everything will redirect and that bookmarks won't need to be changed and that everything will remain the same. My crack team of technical staff assured me over a pint the other night that it would all be fine, but that may be because my crack team of technical staff is an optimistic fellow who does much of his technical cracking via a phone from a bar in West Hampstead.
Anyway, if all goes well, Lampedusa will be proved right and I'll write a nice new post on Kubla Khan later. In fact, we might have a week of posts on Kubla Khan. Hmmm. Yep. That or I'll be sobbing into a computer.
So far as I'm concerned, this is what the Internet really looks like.
