This photograph needed a caption, and none of the excellent suggestions were as mundane as the simple truth: These are people standing on benches go get a look at the Pope on his visit to NY. (from MSNBC).
I write about science, science policy, science education, politics and science, politics, and technology.
The science is mostly climate change, life science, evolution, and science education. The science policy and politics is mostly about climate change and the evolution-creationism false controversy. The technology is mostly about Linux, regular normal person computer use, kids programming, and now and then, household items.
As an Anthropologist and Africanist, I often write about those topics as well.
Usually, I write about one or two topics for a while then shift to something different. This is not systematic, and has to do with context and external forces such as: Is this a presidential election year? Are we having an El Nino? Is there a fight going on somewhere about teaching creationism in a public school? Did I just get a cool new robot toy? Like that.
So, if you don't find the most recent few posts interesting, have a look at the topics below. But, of course, chances are you got here with a Google search and you'll never read this "about" thing.
