About Denim and Tweed

Since I began writing here in 2006, Denim and Tweed has evolved from a waste of time to a useful exercise in science communication to a genuine Broader Impact. Now, I almost don’t feel bad about the time it takes away from my research. Almost.

So what’s going on here, exactly?

The majority of my writing at D&T; is about science, which is what I do for a living. Right now, I write two kinds of posts on a regular basis. Usually mid-weekly, I post a piece on some new scientific result that’s caught my attention, which I submit to the Research Blogging community; and, on Fridays, I post a piece listing science news (with emphasis on other blogs’ postings) that I’ve read in the previous week. I sporadically write about other topics as well, but those two are what I try to commit to do regularly, barring hiatuses (hiati?) for fieldwork and intensive research.
