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
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
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.
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.
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.
