Al Fin Family of Blogs Update

This posting is updated from an original blog directory posting on the first Al Fin blog, (now blocked by Google). It is provided for new readers who may be unfamiliar with the background behind many of the ideas being discussed on Al Fin Next Level.

Al Fin Next Level — this blog — began in the year 2013, after Google blocked administrative access to all Al Fin blogspot blogs.

Over the years, the original blog hatched a small brood of other blogs, which came to specialize more or less on particular areas of interest to the Al Fin writing staff. Here are links to the late and rarely lamented family of Al Fin blogs:

Al Fin 2100 “Al Fin” This was the original, largest, and most general blog of the family.
Google has chosen to block reader access to this blog in a revealing act of high-handed censorship.

Al Fin 2101 “Al Fin, the Next Level” Tended to specialize in future trends and technologies, focusing on “The Dangerous Child Method” of childhood education toward the end.

Al Fin 2200 “abu al-fin” Focused generally on political topics

Al Fin 2300 “Al Fin Energy” Highlighted energy technologies and trends

Al Fin 2400 “Al Fin Potpourri” Was something of a grab-bag of topics, many quite odd-ball in nature

Al Fin 2500 “Al Fin, You Sexy Thing!” Took a serious and not-so-serious look at sexual topics

Al Fin 2600 “Al Fin Longevity” Highlighted topics related to life extension and gerontology

Al Fin 2700 “Al Fin Affictionado” Focused on topics related to writing fiction and written fiction.

Al Fin’s Tomorrow was an early experiment in WordPress blogging, motivated by problems with Blogger at the time. It was abandoned as the Blogger platform became more stable.

Over the years, dozens of Al Fin blog family articles were re-posted on outside websites such as Oilprice.com, Futureblogger.net (an experiment in futuristic group blogging that died in 2009), Peakoil.com (where optimistic Al Fin articles were used for target practise by drunken doomers and generally illiterate commenters :-), Infidel Bloggers Alliance, and a number of other authorized and unauthorized online republishers.

This blog will stay generally focused on the Dangerous Child phenomenon [admin: The Dangerous Child blog has now taken over those duties], with semi-frequent departures to discuss other topics which may seem unrelated, but are not, in the larger scheme of things.
