A few years later

As some of you know, I was writing a weekly blog before the word "blog" even existed. I kept it up for nearly 3 years:


but gave it up because it had simply gotten too hard to keep up with. But ... I've missed the communication, from friends and strangers, that the "blog" brought about. The software to write, upload and get feedback has gotten easier in the mean time, so I thought I'd try again.

I'm keeping the title I came up with 10 years ago, although reading some of the older columns, the voice is unrecognizable. Everyone's writing style, I'm sure, changes over the years. Mine certainly has.

UPDATE: What's this blog about anyway, and what's with the title? It's a scientist's take on an irrational world: irrationality and innumeracy in politics, history, science or day-to-day life.

p.s. Yes, I'm as surprised as you are that GeoCities is still around, let alone still hosting all these pages.

p.s.2 [Oct 2009]: Geocities is no more, but my posts have been archived on the Internet Way Back Machine.


  1. wow! you certainly got me. i never thought geocities existed in the 21st century!!!

    heck, even i had a geocities web page - always under construction (looks like now all those pages are perpetually "under destruction") ;-)

    - s.b. (came here from terri's - you definitely are the "adi bloggara") :-)

  2. p.s.2 should surely be P.P.S. (post-post-script)?
