In a fit of internet housekeeping, I decided to change my blogonym to ‘Radical Scientist,’ because
A) I figure I should leave the title alone, now that people are actually reading this thing a little, and linking to it and such.And I’d already changed the subtitle.
B) I’d rather pretend to be a teeny bit more anonymous. Who among you never wanted a secret identity? Especially a secret identity that your boss probably wouldn’t find when they google you?
C) No one else was using it, and it sounded kinda cool. It’s always hard to find people who are progressive or radical in science circles (Let’s face it, y’all: we’re collectively boring), and I’d like to see more scientists in radical circles (I try so hard not to grimace when some fellow-activist goes on a tear about it’s so tragic that The Establishment crushed kid’s souls with useless shit like physics and calculus, to keep them from discovering the Revolutionary Potential of Art. Art is great and all, but shit’s not gonna get done if all we do is hang out and propagandize each other)
Anyway, just FYI: I’m still running this thing on my own. This blog is my own personal treehouse in the forest of the internet. I’ll be changing over my screen names in other places too, as I get to it.
Also, I’m trying to fix the weird reverse-order comments thing. WordPress swears up and down it’s posting my comments in threaded, chronological order, so go figure. In the meantime, read bottom to top and pretend it’s fixed. Switching themes has helped for now, but I’m feeling kinda ‘meh’ about the WP Classic theme, so I’m gonna keep messing with it.
