Since the farewell post on Cognitive Daily directed people here, it’s only fair to let all the new folks know what they’re in for. First of all, what is this place? Well, I can only tell you what it’s not. It’s nothing like Cognitive Daily. Mainly this is a place to let you know what I’ve been doing and what’s on my mind.
These days, a lot of that functionality is duplicated by Twitter, so if you really want a blow-by-blow account of what I’m thinking about (as filtered by my personal privacy norms), go there.
I do use this blog to explain the thinking behind my other projects, like Cognitive Daily and ResearchBlogging.org, and I’m planning on using it a bit to give you some background for the Mystery Project to be named later.
You’ll see much more politics and opinion here than on CogDaily, and a little more snark. Sorry, that’s just who I am when I’m not in “science writer” mode. Still, I try to avoid idle rants. Expect posts to be reasonably on-topic and reasonably well-thought.
So that’s about it. Welcome. Hope to see you around, and I especially hope you hang around long enough to find out about the Mystery Project (it shouldn’t be much more than a couple weeks!).
