Every once in a while I'll get a comment that lands in one of my Toaster accounts and it reminds me that I actually do have a blog here. I come back here and I don't know what to say any more. I started this as a science blog and now that I'm not in the lab every day doing science I don't exactly know what to put here. It's become a blank, yawning chasm of as-yet-unwritten sparkliness waiting to be brought into being--but to be frank at this point it is unlikely to ever be. I've not given up on science, and nor have I stopped being a scientist, but for the past several months my life has decidedly taken me out of the scientific culture of academia and thrust me into new strange places filled with exciting ideas and motives.
The net sum of these is that I am currently in the process of starting my own company. That, coupled with the guilt I feel each time I come here for not making my own website for a blog, mean that this is probably the last post I will make here that isn't a re-direct to the new sites once I have them up.
