It’s taken forever, but here it is: my new homepage, www.richardzimmermann.com. Huzzah!

I have to say, I’m a bit anxious about this project. That’s why I put it off for so long. (I registered the domain more than a year ago!) A, I don’t really like to put myself out there in such a visible way. ‘Hey look at me.’ People might think I’m a show-off or they may judge that what I’m doing isn’t very good. B, - and that may be much more important - I’m a bit embarrassed, even panicky, about the paucity of academic content I have produced over the years so that there isn’t all that much I could actually put on this page.

But then again, people I respect have told me more than once that you have to have a website with your name on it, be a bit aggressive, and just sell yourself. And maybe this webpage will motivate me to write and publish more. So, yeah, here I go. I’m trying to play the academic website game.

I hope that I will cherish and maintain this site, and that, when all is set and done, I will consider it a success.
