Gephyrophillia Archives | Compiled by Jeff Harris
Page One. Watch This Space. Ask TXB. Not An Update. Gephyrophillia. Although I've been writing on the site since 1998, it was in 2002 that I actually began to archive my front page articles. The regular opinion section of The X Bridge was called Watch This Space for a good six years. Previously, the section was called Page One because it was technically the first page of The X Bridge, then known as CNX. But when I changed the format a bit adopting a magazine format, I renamed it Watch This Space. I changed it to Not An Update and had an Ask TXB section. In 2008, while creating another magazine format, I had a section called Gephyrophillia (literally love of crossing bridges). Like the name so much that it became the universal brand for the regularly-scheduled opinion pieces. Thoughtnami is another, more broader brand, but, that's for another page.
Here's an archive of all the articles written in that first page of The X Bridge from the Page One era to the Watch This Space years to the current Gephyrophillia. Newest articles near the top.
