new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

pz myers' commencement speech at keck school of medicine

although this speech was addressed to an audience of graduates in the fields of science and medicine, it could just as easily be applied to anybody in any corner of society.

'many of you may disagree with how i personally use my academic freedom, and that's fine -- i'm a strong believer in stochastic processes, and while individuals may go off in directions we don't like, i'm confident that the aggregate activity of large numbers of smart people expressing themselves in public will end up making the world a better place.'

it's a pleasure to read it all.
