Oops! RSS feed mishap requires me to self-promote in a separate post
As I warned recently, RSS feeds have gotten a little wonky with the URL change. So I’ve switched back to the wordpress address, with the .com forwarding here. It was really an issue of pride and I’m over it – it doesn’t matter much in the end.
BUT! It means that you guys on the wordpress RSS feed have missed a couple items, one of which has been in the works for the past month and thus I’m eager to share and hear your reactions.
- The blood n’ sweat post, entitled Inevitability and Oil, Pt. 1: the inherent risk for accidents in complex technology, is my attempt to cast a wider net on the BP oil spill. The media has mainly focused on nitpicking the details, but I think this “presents an opportunity for us to reflect upon what it means to be a society reliant on complex technologies whose failures can cause disaster.” Comment or email me and let me know what you think!
- I also posted a beautiful video of deep sea squids compiled by MBARI
I deeply apologize to the 2 of you on the .com feed who are forced to read these news updates twice.
Speaking of computers… I’m in the market for a new laptop. This baby is old enough that it’s missing 3 keys (with many others failing regularly, including the “enter” key) and has zero battery. Love yours? Hate it? I need advice! Seriously. I cannot even choose what kind of bread to get at the supermarket. Tips to hannah.waters [at] gmail [dot] com
Thanks for reading!

EDIT: And… this post reset the RSS feed. And the world is back in order. Sorry folks.
