An introduction

This is a semi-public place to dump text too flimsy to even become a blog post. I wouldn't recommend reading it unless you have a lot of time to waste. You'd be better off at my livejournal. I also have another blog, and write most of the French journal summaries at the Eurozine Review.

Why do I clutter up the internet with this stuff at all? Mainly because I'm trying to get into the habit of displaying as much as possible of what I'm doing in public. Also, Blogger is a decent interface for a notebook

BP oil spill

I often avoid certain news stories: not because they're unimportant, but because I doubt I'll learn much by discovering them in the day-by-day dribble of the daily press.

The BP Oil Spill is one: I'm not going to bother with short articles on it, but I'd really love to follow the long ones. I've idly watched the speculation ramp up to biblical proportions, but have no idea how to interpret it.

[no content here, as you can see, just a stick in the ground to note how shameful it is that I know nothing about this]
