Lately, I’ve been struggling with the fact that I’ve been writing for two different audiences on my weblog. The first group consists of my family, friends, and people that have similar tastes in politics and culture. The second group are fellow scientists and techies who may be interested in what I’ve been up to in lab, or what new bioinformatics tools I’ve been using.
In the interest of pleasing both audiences and allowing you to more easily sort the wheat from the chaff, I’m moving my science writing to this space, while maintaining my personal blog at it’s original address. I want to emphasize that this isn’t about separating my personal and professional lives, as that’s a near impossibility in this age of the internet. Rather, it’s about offering focused content to just the people that want to hear it.
I’m also making a resolution to post on a near-daily basis over here, to get this site off on the right foot. Some days it may just be a code snippet, or a good quotation, but I’ll try to keep the content flowing with some more meaty posts about bioinformatics, article reviews, and thoughts about scientific culture.
