As much as I like blogger, and the fact that I can use my google account, I have finally decided that I will be moving to a new wordpress blog.
I will see how this experiment goes. This blog and the old entries will remain here, and if at some future point I find wordpress unsatisfactory, I can always come back.
WordPress feels very snappy and fresh, and it seems to come with built-in latex support. We will see where this new blog goes and whether I decide to stay there or return here. However, for now I feel like trying it out.
