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.

titans of science: david attenborough meets richard dawkins

of mind and matter, on the guardian

click image to sourcehere's an attenborough snip:
'a physicist will tell me that this armchair is made of vibrations and that it's not really here at all. but when samuel johnson was asked to prove the material existence of reality, he just went up to a big stone and kicked it. i'm with him.'

and dawkins, to attenborough, about the title of dawkins' forthcoming children's book:
'OK. well, you're rather dissing my title...'

read the entire exchange here.
the audio is here.

.. and here is dawkins' critique of the setup for the conversation: an opportunity missed
