Well, it was last week, but who is counting.
Two years ago, following the very successful model of my partner Robert Thomas, I decided to become a blogger. Nearly 300 posts later, with topics ranging from Somali piracy, SONAR and whales, to Antarctic whaling and forum non conveniens, I still consider myself learning about society and its attempts to harness, regulate, use and protect our ocean resources.
My day to day practice is more landbound dealing with land use and commercial disputes, but after my time in the Coast Guard, I don't think my heart will ever be far from the sea. To my followers, thank you for following. I hope that my blog helps you keep track of the issues affecting the ocean and the maritime trade thereon.
