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.

  1. I can't say I'm terribly surprised to learn of the decline since 2000, but it is quite disappointing. This is certainly on my list of problems caused by the influence of fundamentalist Christianity in the U.S.

    vjack, how can you blame that on fundamentalist Christianity? It's been around for a about a century now, and it's influence is declining every day. So I feel to see a strong connection.

    Also, I'd like to know the number of peer reviewed articles overall. Certainly other fields like the humanities and literature are key as well, unless we want to go back to the 1950s-esque cold war mentality of "SCIENCE MATH".
