Come say hi in the Midwest!

Few days… Few weeks. Okay, I’m back. I just moved to the Midwest to start my new job as a post-doc working with CosmoQuest as informal education lead. Woo hoo! My apartment is only partly unpacked, my office just getting set up, the university doesn’t even have me in the system yet, but I’ve officially started! In fact, I’m at a NASA Education and Public Outreach retreat in New Mexico, getting to know my new colleagues.

I really look forward to getting back to blogging. There is a post coming together over at Skepchick about the formation of the Moon, and I’ve said my “Hello, world!” over at CosmoQuest. I’ve finally poked my head back into the Weekly Space Hangout and will be blogging over at Discovery really soon. Speaking of writing, once I’ve finished my corrections, I’ve decided to actually share the final version of my Ph.D dissertations with you all because, well, why not. Science should be open. My committee even encouraged me to write a blog-friendly version of my introduction, so look forward to that as well.

I’d really like to encourage anyone who can get to St. Louis over Memorial Day weekend to check out the College of Curiosity, a new kind of interactive skeptic and science event over at the City Museum. That place is ridiculously awesome all on its own, and you’ll also get to interact with a fun lineup of speakers who will guide you through weird things like math magic and alien life. I hope to see you there!

It’s really, really good to be done. But as the Cult of Done reminds us, Done is just the engine of More.

    WOW! That says it all, WOW! Hope to do a “marathon” go-out-west trip in June. Might be going out or coming home via I-70, so could conceivable stop on by St. Louis if my passenger is agreeable to that.

    Felicity and I were hoping to get to St. Louis for College of Curiosity, especially since you and so many of our skeptic friends will be there. (Ethan Brown performed for the Boston Skeptics a couple of months ago, and was amazing!) But alas, it doesn’t look like we’ll able to go. Have fun! See you at Dragon*Con?

      Yes! D*C for sure.

    My son and I had a great time at the C of C. Thanks! We (there were actually 5 of us there, but my wife and my other sons were more interested in the City Museum) live near Springfield, IL, so we’re kind-of-almost-semi-locals.
