Greetings, and welcome to my blog! I’m afraid there’s nothing much here at the moment, so you might want to come back in a few weeks once I’ve got round to writing something.
My main aim for this place is to write about any general scientific issues and developments which appeal to me, such as the surprising fact that the Canadian Firm D-Wave Systems has recently unveiled what it claims is the world’s first commercially viable quantum computer (while their competitors are decades behind, tinkering with tiny configurations in labs, wondering whether a functional machine is a practical possibility at all).
So almost always the views expressed here will be those of an interested non-expert, and I’m happy to be corrected by people better informed than me. Hopefully I’ll learn something from researching the posts, and get into the habit of writing about science at least semi-regularly.
I may also write occasional expository pieces on subjects I know a little more about, which will usually mean maths.
Quite often though I expect I’ll take the easy option, and stick the boot in to the enemy. For instance did you know that Universities of Westminster, Central Lancashire, and Salford each currently offer Bachelor of Science degrees in Homeopathy? Shame. They may as well offer BSc’s in The Physics of Christianity or `how the God depicted by the Jews and Christians is completely consistent with the Cosmological Singularity, an entity whose existence is required by physics’.
