Blog

Welcome to my blog.

This space is for occasional postings on topics that interest me. At the moment, it consists largely articles on specific topics in using Linux in my daily life as a researcher, teacher, and human being (largely so I won’t forget what I did to get things running). But I’m hoping to expand it to cover more of my pedagogy and reading soon. Research topics seem less relevant, since they already have fora for publication—and their own section on this website

Please feel free to comment on these posts.
