Under construction, but coming soon-ish… Actually, don’t hold your breath.
In the meantime, you can read my Yahoo 360° page or my rather oblique “Trist’s Grist” blog, which plays off the text and (I hope) the spirit of Laurence Sterne’s Tristram Shandy. People seem vaguely amused by the former, confused by the latter. Your mileage may vary.
I work as a “science visualizer” at the American Museum of Natural History, mostly focussed on work for the planetarium, and I maintain a blog called “Visualizing Science” in which I ruminate about the way visuals are used to communicate scientific concepts. For the truly geeky, I’ve begun to collect some of my ludicrous gripes and complaints about my chosen profession, sorting through old emails and various rants and rages to gather My Planetarium Pet Peeves onto a single web page. More constructively, I’ve also compiled a bibliography on the history of science that expands on work I originally did for the Hayden Planetarium “Scientific Revolution” course.
You can also look at some more respectable (and more politically phrased) thoughts on my work page at the American Museum of Natural History. Tidbits include ruminations on the future of the planetarium and thoughts on the role of Copernicus in science mythology, among other things.
Check back later—all right, much later—for more.
