I wrote about a road trip I took in 2007 for Buzzfeed. This is what I looked like then.

This is really great!

“for example, I would have been much more pleased if you had told me that a particular painting was fantastic and that your wife’s eyes had established a new artistic paradigm.” To Karl Ove Knausgård, Re: Your Tortured Feelings for the Gays - The Awl

“It’s unusual — in fact (why be coy?), it’s extremely rare — to come across a first novel by a woman writer that concerns itself with such quirky, philosophical, didactic explorations; a novel in which the heart and the brain vie for the role of protagonist, and the brain wins.”

Book Review - ‘Atmospheric Disturbances,’ by Rivka Galchen - Review - NYTimes.com

Ooh, A+ sexism buried in this old Times review! The sentence before this is, “No, this is not chick lit.” Every review of a man’s book should have to include the caveat “No, this is not a car repair manual.” Unless, of course, it is.

To at least some extent, the search for extrasolar planets is the search for extrasolar life. We don’t get excited about Earth-like planets because we’re worried our planet is lonely. We’re the ones looking to be less alone. Public interest piques at the mention of Earth-like discoveries: rocky worlds, roughly Earth’s size, in their star’s habitable zone. It seems simple. But of course, it’s not.

My first post as an occasional blogger for The Planetary Society is up! There are some grumpy comments, and I can’t tell if they’re grumpy at me or grumpy at the paper I wrote about, so I’m gonna ignore them and enjoy the fact that I’m now science-blogging at the same outlet as Bill Nye.
