Who Am I?

Wow, it's a nice crib Lindsay has here!  I'll try not to make any messes, and to clean up after myself if I do.  Between the few of us guests here we are going to have some kind of division of labor.  I will walk the dogs and feed the pets.  I can even wash the dishes and do the laundry.  But don't let me anywhere near the flowers - my thumbs are of all colors but green.  Everything autotrophic given to my care promptly dies.

I will post something longer later today/tonight, perhaps even twice, so let me just use this initial post to introduce myself to those who may not know me - which is a diplomatic way of saying that you are about to see the absolute pinnacle of shameless, outrageous, hyper-blogwhoring.

My main digs are at Science And Politics.  The subheader of my blog most succinctly and correctly describes my blog: "Red-State Serbian Jewish atheist liberal PhD student with Thesis-writing block and severe blogorrhea trying to understand US politics by making strange connections between science, religion, brain, language and sex." 

Lindsay was one of the first people to link to me, about a year and a half ago.  OK, it was on the same day I got a vile and vicious link from the Little Green Footballs, but that does not count, I count only friends.

You can find my best science posts collected here and my best political posts here.

I am also considered to be some kind of guru of blog carnivals, perhaps because I have written so much about them, hosted a bunch of them (including, most recently, Teaching Carnival, devoted to Higher Ed), and started a couple of carnivals myself.

I have collected all of my education-related posts on another blog called The Magic School Bus, and I also run a narrow-niche blog devoted entirely to my area of expertise - chronobiology (circadian and other biological rhythms and the medicine of sleep) - on another blog Circadiana.  The popularity of the latter one still baffles me - I thought not many people cared about nitty-gritty science.

You can learn more about me from two interviews I gave recently, one for Bloggasm, mainly on Republican War On Science (yes, Chris Mooney was the second blogger to link to me, right after Lindsay), and one with Medscape. focusing more on science.

I'll be back later today with less about me and more about cool stuff happening in the world today.
