… with sample size 1. Last year, at the 4-years anniversary, I presented a quantitative analysis – in line with the editorial policy I had silently established: My blogging had turned from quasi-philosophical ramblings on science, work, and life to no-nonsense number crunching. But the comment threads on my recent posts exhibit my subconsciousness spilling […]Read More The Stages of Blogging – an Empirical Study
It’s nearly done (previous episode here).

Michelle has then told […]Read More Lost in Translation – an Overdue Update
