Chad and Tara have spilled the beans on a highly classified backchannel discussion we ScienceBloggers have been having. Since the cat is already out of the bag (presumably a bag of beans), I suppose I’ll chime in.
What basic concepts would you like me to explain here?
The idea, of course, would be for me to take a basic concept from my area of expertise and explain it in such a way that an intelligent non-expert would be able to grasp the important bits. As well, I’d want to explain why it matters to get clear on the concept, what it’s good for, etc.
I’d be happy to entertain requests pertaining to concepts in ethics, philosophy of science, and chemistry.
What would you like to know?
