I have another blog now - up on the Nature Network. You'll have to forgive me, and if you have a lot of free time, feel free to check it out. It's more oceanography based (or will be, when I have more than two posts, anyway). Our relationship can withstand my indiscretion, can't it? God, I hope so! I still love you, you know!
I started this blog mostly because of my friend Allie. She's on her way to a masters in Journalism, and she got assigned to write a blog for one of her classes. When she told me about it, I thought "wow, good idea."
You see, I love to write, but as a scientist very little of my day-to-day writing is interesting or legible to anyone who isn't a scientist. So this lets me write in a way that is actually fun to read - I know, novel.
Anyhow, if you want to why it's called "Observations of a Nerd," read this.
