    In a move that is sure to do wonders for my productivity here at Semantic Drift, I have decided to join the team over at Legal Geekery. You’ll never see a more wretched hive of scum and villainy, if by “scum and villainy” you mean “law students and writing” and by “wretched hive” you mean “awesome blog”.

That should free up more of my headspace here to talk about what I ate for breakfast and which movie I saw over the weekend. Lucky you!
