Finished the Social Security paperwork and changed my Linked-In profile to 'retired'. I guess it's official now.

This is my second week as a retired person and it still doesn't seem quite real. It's not like I've been less busy.

Retirement update: Just finished taking care of health insurance for the near future. For me electing COBRA benefits for the next 18 months was cheaper than other options. (YMMV)

Also means I don't have to change my doctor. A minor but not unimportant factor.

Rusted Neuron – an Intentional Community

Rusted Neuron is an invitation-only 'Intentional Community'. It is not intended to represent a specific focus, although the people you find here are generally intelligent, creative, and witty. Content and conduct rules are set by the community, not by fiat. The one thing we will not tolerate here is intolerance; you can agree to disagree, but you must treat others with respect.

Currently the membership limit is 100 people and there are plenty of slots available. The goal is to try to replicate real-world community interaction and norms enforcement online. Keeping it small is intended to create a village atmosphere by staying well under Dunbar's Number.
