    Thanks for the link, GG, as well as for the support during the transitional phase of Laelaps!

    Hmm... feeling uninspired by my list of history of science things to blog about. Any requests?

    More "basic concepts in optics"?

    • I've been thinking about it -- thanks for the suggestion!

      (Why aren't you on Twitter yet?)

      I've had a whole farrago of things to finish at the day job, which has delayed my plans to sort out my whole "Internet presence" thing. Need to update the blag software, do this, do that . . . getting myself set up with Twitter will possibly be part of that reorganization effort.

      The Blogohedron could always use more "basic concepts" stuff — the things you need to know in order to understand lots of other things. I have some ideas brewing for where to go next after my introduction to the logistic map item, which will be in the "basic concepts" vein . . . but like I said, I have to do some behind-the-scenes jiggerypokery before I get to that.

        I can sympathize: it's often hard for me to prioritize and push the blogging to a lower priority to the regular work.

        Agreed! I definitely need to do more "optics basics" posts -- the catch is that it requires a bit more reading on my part to make sure I get the details right. For that matter, I've got 2-3 absolutely unique things to blog about that can't be found anywhere on the internet. Unfortunately, "unique = lots of extra reading required". :(

        • As an addendum to my previous comment: "basics" posts can be especially tricky 'cause they form the foundation for other things -- get a piddling little detail wrong at the foundation, and the whole building can collapse later!

        Yeah — that's why the last section of anything I write ends up being the introduction! It's only when I've explained everything else that I know what I need to say at the beginning . . . writing is weird, man.
