The Stages of Blogging – an Empirical Study

... with sample size 1. Last year, at the 4-years anniversary, I presented a quantitative analysis - in line with the editorial policy I had silently established: My blogging had turned from quasi-philosophical ramblings on science, work, and life to no-nonsense number crunching. But the comment threads on my recent posts exhibit my subconsciousness spilling … Continue reading The Stages of Blogging – an Empirical Study

Random Things I Have Learned from My Web Development Project

It's nearly done (previous episode here). I have copied all the content from my personal websites, painstakingly disentangling snippets of different 'posts' that were physically contained in the same 'web page', re-assigning existing images to them, adding tags, consolidating information that was stored in different places. Raking the Virtual Zen Garden - again. (Voice from … Continue reading Random Things I Have Learned from My Web Development Project

I Picked the Right Blogging Platform! (Book Review: The Year without Pants)

Before starting this blog I compared blogging tools in 2011. These two facts about WordPress and Automattic did win me over: Every new employee has to do three weeks of end-user support, regardless of position. They have a developer who calls himself the Quantum Bug Creator and has a PhD in Quantum Cryptography. Now I … Continue reading I Picked the Right Blogging Platform!

I Am Too Googleable!

What a letdown. I wanted to report on near completion of The Website Resurrection Project - but I had a mind-altering experience. On the upside, I am not afraid of identity theft or surveillance anymore. My dentist had to cancel an appointment the day before. I showed up some minutes before the appointed time. The … Continue reading I Am Too Googleable!

Lost in Translation – an Overdue Update

In this post I try something new: I will keep it short. This is actually an update long overdue. Months ago I have written a post on how to control the four elements that is how to harvest energy from ambient air, solar radiation, the freezing of water, and ground here. A loyal reader told … Continue reading Lost in Translation – an Overdue Update

Intelligent Life-Forms in the Blogosphere – Again!

This post might baffle readers that come here for: science / physics / book reviews / corporate world dark satire / search term poetry / navel-gazing / self-destruction ... and the other genres I have forgotten. However, I'd argue that this post covers all of those - in a subtle way. My blog has a … Continue reading Intelligent Life-Forms in the Blogosphere – Again!

Revisiting the Enigma of the Intersecting Lines and That Pesky Triangle

Chances are I made a fool of myself when trying to solve an intriguing math/physics puzzle described in this post. I wanted to create a German version but found it needs a revision. I will just give you my stream of consciousness as I cannot make it worse anyway. The puzzle presented by Quantum Boffin … Continue reading Revisiting the Enigma of the Intersecting Lines and That Pesky Triangle

Breaking News on Search Term Poetry (Good, Bad, Ugly)

This is a break from quantum physics - you deserve it! Based on your questions - no un-follows so far fortunately - I will follow-up with attempting again to pick the right metaphors for 1026 dimensional spaces and tons of enormous vectors. But there is more (enigmatic) to this universe than quantum field theory - such … Continue reading Breaking News on Search Term Poetry (Good, Bad, Ugly)

The Science of Search Term Poetry

In the break after the second session on Quantum Field Theory I am showing off light edutainment with a scientific touch. Every quarter I save the search terms as displayed in WordPress Stats for highly sophisticated statistical, psychological and linguistic analysis. That is, I do create a Search Term Poem. Rules are as follows: Every … Continue reading The Science of Search Term Poetry
