3 reasons you blog about science:
- Science is misunderstood by the general public.
- Everyday brings something new.
- Politicians and creationists are distorting the methods, goals and abilities of science for their own purpose. Scientists need to stand up and be heard.
Point at which you would stop blogging:
1 thing you frequently blog besides science:
- Right wing hacks that annoy me
4 words that describe your blogging style:

6 items you would bring to a meet-up with the other ScienceBloggers:
- My Sigma Beta t-shirt
- A towel
- My sense of humor
- An excellent bottle of Irish whiskey

5 conversations you would have before the end of that meet-up:
- On poker strategy with Ed Brayton
- On evodevo with PZ
- On juggling academics and kids with Janet
- On not giving up when searching for that perfect job with GrrrlScientist
- On how to write clearly with Carl and Chris.
Damn, that was harder than I thought.
