I've been assimilated!
I'm now blogging over at http://scienceblogs.com/christinaslisrant/
. This is very exciting! There's a chance I could post things that are tooo rant-like here, but I expect to basically do all of my blogging there. I will maintain these archives, though. Wish me luck!
edit 8/2010: no longer at scienceblogs, now at scientopia.org/blogs/christinaslisrant
