Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I don't have connections (or if I do, I don't realise I have them, or if I do, I don't use them), but connections happen to me.

Does that makes sense?

I'm hoping the same for ET.

Just X, and then I spoiled that by doing a PhD on a useless topic that was not published.

X-arque doesn't exist. X, or Enarque (or both).
Scandal and discredit has only really befallen the enarques.

Wikipédia: Exarque
L'exarchat est une organisation de certains territoires périphériques de l'empire byzantin, mise en place au VIe siècle pour faire face à la menace d'envahisseurs. L'exarchat est dirigé par un «exarque» qui concentre les pouvoirs civils et militaires.

It's worse than that for me. I might know them: but do they know me?

I don't have connections

What I mean as your connections are your highly educated friends from Paris and your prominence on large blogs like dKos, Booman Tribune and The Oil Drum.

That's what I meant by connections "happen to me". My visibility on dKos was quite unexpected (say I modestly and returning to (arrogant) form, mumbling, "it's not the success on dKos that surprises me, it's the fact that ET has not become wildly successful yet, grumble")
