One year ago today the first weekly edition
of THE ELECTRONIC LIVEIBIZA
was published online and I'm very happy to write that we shall,
hopefully, go on to produce many, many more interesting weekly
issues over the years to come.
I decided to begin this weekly publication,
simply because, I have a great passion for this wonderful
island and I was sick and tired of hearing and reading mostly
negative things about Ibiza. Therefore, I thought it was about
time that somebody started to put together some positive news
and attractive features on our unique island of Ibiza.
Emily Kaufman and myself produced the initial
Weekly Edition 001: Saturday 3rd March 2001 and Emily has
done wonders over the primary year to write and create so
many interesting articles week after week after week on this
attention-grabbing topic of the "History of Ibiza".
Not only does Emily research and write the fact well for her
column on the "History of Ibiza" but she also writes
a very good interview on the remarkable people of the island
who she has spoken with over the past twelve-month period.
Sinclair Newton, our humorous "Sober
Life" columnist was the next to join the cause with his
first article "Pig" in Weekly Edition 008: Saturday
21st April 2001. My personal favourite "Sober Life"
was "Cake" in Weekly Edition 039: Saturday 24th
November 2001 in which Sinclair started making a cake and
within a few lines he ended up going to war.
José P Ribas made his debut and wrote
his first "Island Ecology" column "Proem"
for Weekly Edition 017: Saturday 23rd June 2001. During his
period of time with LiveIbiza José has written several
out of the ordinary articles on the fascinating ecology of
the island of Ibiza. Furthermore, José has also contributed
a lot more to the good quality of our fortnightly series of
"Artists on Ibiza" which with today's feature is
our tenth article on this worthy of note subject.
Louise Wright was the next who made her
first appearance by writing the "Local News" column
for Weekly Edition 020: Saturday 14th July 2001. Louise is
currently on an enforced sabbatical from LiveIbiza and is
at present studying very hard so she'll to be able to pass
the examinations that if successful will reward her with an
automatic entrance to University. Nonetheless, we expect Louise
to be back amongst us writing her informative "Local
News" column sometime later this summer when all her
exams are finished.
Kirk W Huffman our anthropologist and wizard
made his introduction with writing his extraordinary "An
Anthropological View" column "Water and Water and
Water" in Weekly Edition 025: Saturday 18th August 2001.
Kirk is a definite constant mind of information that really
does cover to the full all aspects of the subject this intellect
has chosen to write about.
Then there is our webmaster, Antonio Ribas
Bamberger, without whom we could not produce this weekly product
because he is the genius who constantly works behind the scene
to put everything perfectly together and to send out the weekly
publication to our subscribers each Saturday.
I would like to give our sincere thanks
to all those folk out there who read online and also to those
people who have subscribed to receive our weekly publication
free of charge each Saturday.
We really do appreciate the written enquires
you send in asking about the many intriguing happenings that
take place throughout the year here on Ibiza.
Finally, we would also be grateful for any
encouraging suggestions of how you may think that we can improve
our weekly publication. Therefore, please feel free to write
and let us know about any of your ideas that could possibly
be of benefit to LiveIbiza.
