working / teaching

Hey America,

How have you been? You look good. Well, you don't look bad anyway.

I am here, writing my dissertation, which may be the reason why I find it urgent to update my blog. Yeah, I was brainstorming what is the best way to formulate the model by which I analyze my data, and it occurred to me that I have not blogged anything in a really long time. I haven't read any blogs either, so I really don't know what my old friends are up to.

Mostly I have been only working these past months, and not much time for anything else. I am also teaching two lab classes in Introductory Biology, which is a class full of young Science majors, ready to take the world by its ear and shake it up. In truth, most of them are not very enthusiastic about Science, which is a little sad, at least from my point of view. This is the business of many awesome people, and awesome questions. The biggest questions there are. The human brain, and life, and big bangs, and nanobots, and cancer, and climate change, and evolution, and self-organization, etc. I think I'll try to get them to focus on that big picture in the few remaining classes.

Anywho, I should get back to my writing.
Best, Keith.
