12 Mars 2016
I have decided to end my blog on March 11, 2016, fifth anniversary of the Fukushima disaster. The date is of course symbolic and marks for me 5 years of hard, often depressing work. For the past five years, I have kept an eye on the English-speaking Japanese press for any article related to Fukushima (and the nuclear power industry in Japan).
The idea was - originally - to keep some sort of archive which could be used for instance by somebody wanting to write a book on Fukushima or to check how transparent information on nukes is or whatever. But this never materialised.
After all this time i still don’t know who my readers are or what they do with my work. And the way I work involves daily checks for fear of missing some articles. On the whole maybe not the most efficient time investment.
Not a rhythm i can afford to keep for another xxx ( ???) years.
I want to keep all this info available to the public so we are thinking, with several colleagues/friends also involved in the aftermath of 3/11, of making an e-book. The info must simply not be allowed to evaporate.
