Random nonsense from a middle-aged academic


When I’m not out taking photos (like the one above), I write a (very) occasional blog, which currently covers three main areas:


Stuff about the history of biology, science fiction and what I call  “biology as public culture” (a phrase I adapted from Jan Golinski’s excellent book, Science as Public Culture).


Sample of my “here’s an interesting fact…” style of research in progress.


Occasional bits and pieces about technology that’s specifically useful to academics.

You can read the blog by clicking on one of these topics in the left-hand menu.

Comments are welcome, but will be moderated before they’re posted.
