Hello from New York City. For all you faithful Tom Paine's Ghost readers out there you may have noticed a marked decline in my actual written-word of late. Apologies as I was composing my dissertation and being distracted with flowering aloe plants good music and LOVE all at the same time. Having defended my dissertation and driven a few thousand miles I am here in New York City to live-blog the 2011 World Science Festival.
I am a big fan of the overall mission of this festival which is...
"The Mission of the World Science Festival is to cultivate and sustain a
general public informed by the content of science, inspired by its
wonder, convinced of its value, and prepared to engage with its
implications for the future."
Keep your eyes here at Tom Paine's Ghost and catch me blogging for the official WSF blog over the next few days!
PS - please excuse grammatical and spelling mistakes for the time being. I am of the philosophy that content is more important than the frame it is presented in. I promise I will go back and tidy it up after I come up for air sometime next week but for now you get my thoughts raw!
