Lapsed fanboy, actor, comedian, amateur scientician. My goal is to become a poster boy for how awesome science is, to slowly change the image of science as something for the elite to something exciting and wonderful that everyone can share, at some level. I'm pretty interested in the rise and fall of Intelligent Design, especially since it tried to invade my turf (i.e. Australia), but I'm more interested in the public perception and understanding of science, which still seems to me to be unacceptably low in nearly every useful way.

I'm also interested in pretty much everything else (see the random selection below). I like human beings a lot, even though sometimes they do stupid things. Please note that this does not necessarily mean I'll like you even if you do stupid things, but the odds are in your favour.

Really I'm just a simple guy making his way in the Universe with a bit of ambition and a lot of passion. Some people enjoy reading what I say, though my missives are not terribly deep or even frequent, and more and more they're just me trying to work up to a standard fit for human consumption.

It's traditional to say something about your "policy" regarding your friends list. I don't have one beyond adding journals I find intriguing and removing those I no longer find interesting. Nearly all my posts are public and you can friend me, read me, or ignore me as you like; I won't take it personally.
