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…

…or perhaps more aptly, I began to learn how to become a (semi-) professional blogger.  More updates as events warrent — as it stands, I purchased ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income and began to read it.  I have not gotten very far, but I’m encouraged so far.  I’ve started coming up with new blog ideas; niches to branch out into, that kind of thing.  Who knows whether this will ever come to fruition, but at least I have a goal.
