It’s Alive!


As some of you might have noticed, Mostly Harmless Science has undergone a lacuna. An unconformity. A discontinuity. A hiatus. A gap. I could throw out some excuses, but instead, I will bribe you with a list of UNESCO’s newest World Heritage Sites.

The temporal rift outlined above has yielded several interesting (at least to me) updates.

1. Another degree? Check. Feel free to enjoy a one-line summary of my thesis.

2. I have migrated back to the glorious nation of Canada.

3. I’m working on a more in-depth post on arsenic in groundwater for the Scientific American Guest Blog, which should be complete in the not-too-distant future.

4. There’s something exciting in store for all of you. A surprise of sorts. I have decided to try something a little different for the next few months and see if it catches on. It’s a mixed media venture that takes the ‘Mostly Harmless’ rather literally, looking at all sorts of ways that earth science can kill you. It sounds scary, but it’ll be fun, I promise. I’m almost ready to go with filming, and the post should be up shortly thereafter.

  1. Blogging hiatus are permissible. In fact, encouraged. Sounds like good ‘stuff’ on your plate going forward. Welcome home! And… looking forward to your impending change-up.
