My follower count is blowing up over here. I have no idea why Tumblr decided to give me any responsibility or highlight my blog since I hadn’t posted in two months when I got the email about it. Maybe this is their way of guilting me into posting more often? Goodness knows I really need to get back into the habit of blogging about something other than Homestuck, so perhaps this will be a positive experience. Hopefully it’ll be worth your time.
You likely won’t see a whole heck of a lot of original writing here because I work a lot and tend to be pressed for time (this is why I had to give up my blogging gig at Scientific American, which I regret was a necessity because I really enjoyed the community over there). Mostly I use this blog to pass along the things that come across my desk that I find interesting. Images, news blurbs, videos, etc.
My main interests are physiology and genetics, and my work is in chemistry, so those are the topics you’ll see here most often. The vast majority of the stuff in the science tag here on tumblr is space-related, but I assure you that there is plenty of interesting junk in the world of science that’s a bit closer to home than outer space. Maybe I can convince you of that, too.
Anyway. I may actually write up a personal introduction later, but in the meantime I hope you enjoy the photos of science art, birds, and gore-y healing wounds. (I will try to always post trigger warnings for graphic images in the tags, for those of you who use tumblr savior.) Feel free to introduce yourself, too.
