Blog Links by Ben Jones

If you have a blog, share the URL in this thread!

I haven’t disappeared, really! Just haven’t had a ton of things to post about this week. That will change next week when I post pictures & stories from CPW. In the meantime, some random stuff in no particular order:

1) Happy birthday Mitra!

2) Check out Kevin’s latest post – it’s an awesome collection of clarifications & advice for first year MIT students.

3) I’ve been thinking for awhile that it would be cool to collect links to other blogs somewhere. So if you have a blog, leave a comment with the URL. Let’s see how many we can get!

    Hi! I live in Japan and happened to come across your blog. I’m currently on a year-long exchange, but I will be enrolling at MIT for the class of 2009. Thanks for posting the “first year MIT” reference, it looks rather daunting but with and equal level of excitement/general hullabaloo.
    Feel free to check out my site, see you when I get to Boston this summer.

    Hmmm….actually feeling kind of shy here, which is weird, since I’ve had a blog for…like 5-6 years now. Since back before blogs were even cool. That’s right. Haha. =) Here it is: Apologies in advance for the design- it looks awesome on MY computer but doesn’t always translate well to other browsers/resolutions/etc. Aaaannd I’m lazy and haven’t gotten around to designing a new one yet.

    Oh, and don’t mind the URL, it’s an old nickname I’m actually rather fond of. =)

  4. Benjamin says: is the site, forgot to include the most important part

  5. Benjamin, it was linked from your name, heh.

    That url will probably be changing soon, but for now it stays there, hehe.

    I have a livejournal, which is perhaps not technically the same, but it might count. Going under the assumption it does, it’s located at Haven’t had the chance to post anything too exciting lately, though…

    Just a quick question… what will happen to our MyMIT accounts?

    Will they be deleted?
    If so, when will they be deleted?

    How long does the admissions office hold the data tied to rejected students?

  10. Working now. When it went down (yesterday about 2:00 pm Boston time), I contacted IESL, the blog hoster, to let them know. They rebooted the server and restarted the service, but it crashed again about 5:30 last night.

    Emailed them at 11:30 pm last night to inform it was still down.

    Evidently there was some construction outside the building and they think the network drop was disconnected. Back up now and has been since this morning!

    I am really looking forward to the CPW stories and pictures.

    Folks, unfortunately I had to remove some comments that got a little too serious in this thread. “Ashamed,” your post was a good one and I truly respect everything you said. But unfortunately that kind of sentiment naturally solicits responses that, while heartfelt and well-meaning, may ultimately do more harm than good. This is why I needed to remove your post.

    To those who responded, I know that your hearts were in the right place and I wholeheartedly respect your words. But as we all know, this is an MIT-sponsored site and there are liability issues at play. Offering psychological advice to others is not something we can accommodate in these blogs without enormous risk to the whole admissions blogging program. Thanks everyone for understanding, and apologies for the censorship.
