I will be changing my posting schedule, in aknowledgement of the fact that many times I am way too exhausted at night to do a post.  I will still try to update every day, but there will be no set timeline, like every night.  Just wanted to let you know.

SPECIAL — New Blog?

November 4, 2008

I’d like to throw out the idea of a new blog I’ve been banging around to see if any of you out there would be interested in joining me.  Given the appalling anti-intellectualism streak developing in this country, not to mention a growing lack of specifically scientific literacy, I believe that education is more necessary than ever.

That said, I’d like to begin a blog featuring young academics and intellectuals writing about new developments in their particular fields of interest or expertise.  This would take a particular eye towards the future and how these new scientific and research developments will affect our lives as we grow and inherit the world.

If you think that you would read this, please comment!  If you might be interested in writing with me, let me know what you’d be writing on either via comment or email — tyler DOT crosby AT gmail DOT com.

Today I Learned…

…that the internet at my mom’s house is non-functional.  So updates are going to be tough over the next few days.  Stay tuned.

This is the first post in what I hope to be many following a very simple concept.  I’ve always thought that a day spent without learning something is a day wasted — so in that vein I’m going to be posting each night with something I learned that day.  Sometimes there will be a good deal of explication, sometimes almost none at all.  The only guarantee that I can give you is that it will be something that I did not know the previous day.

I will always appreciate your comments — I assume that you’ll be able to teach me as much if not more than I learn through the basic course of my day.  I hope you enjoy yourselves, and happy learning!
