On moving on

After Nature Network shafted me and a few others over our blogs there (they locked us out without warning, meaning we couldn’t make a a graceful transition), I launched a new blog network, called Occam’s Typewriter.

All my ‘serious’ and ‘not-so-serious’ blogging will henceforth be at Confessions of a (former) Lab Rat,

Please do the thing with your bookmarks and RSS feeds.

Praise for Occam’s Typewriter


we need to pay you more

I will happily buy you a pint

grumpy old scrotum

hope wikileaks isn’t hacking us

When did Richard ever *not* ask for trouble? Trouble is what he likes. Trouble with a capital T.

Would just like to mention that @rpg7twit is a genius :) #occamt

I’ve just had a short SF-style piece published in Nature. Let me know if you’d like a copy.

And in breaking news, two photos I took have made it into an online guidebook to Australia!

They are of the Sydney Olympic Aquatic Centre and Floriade. The originals are at Flickr:

I get around

Rather gratifyingly, a post I made over at Nature Network (yes, that Nature) garnered more than a few comments from the editorial staff (among others) and made it onto Maxine Clarke’s ‘official’ Nature weblog.

Even more ego-strokingly, I appear, directly or indirectly, three times in that one post.

Fame! We’re going to live forever!

Um, nearly got carried away, there. Sorry.
