Hi all, and welcome! On this site, devoted to sharing the excitement and meaning of science, you’ll find a blog (posts begin below) and reference articles (accessible from the menus above.) The site is being upgraded, so you’ll see some ongoing changes; if you notice technical problems, please let me know.  [Sep. 6: I’m aware spam filtering has been too aggressive today.] Thanks, and enjoy!

Don’t forget to leave (polite) comments, and keep an eye out for days when I take direct questions from readers. Oh, and for the moment you can follow me on Twitter and Facebook.

  1. Really enjoy all your posts. Fascinating material about the fundamental workings of our universe.
    In a certain sense we all are just “field excitations”

  2. Matt, what are the long term plans with your blog?

    If you intend to use it to supplement your professional career long term, then I recommend you hire someone making a career out of designing and maintaining blogs: they’ll quickly elevate your blog to a level within a day or so that would otherwise take you a few years casually, if at all, and suggest things you weren’t aware of. If not, and your blog is a casual hobby, then it’s fine as it is IMO. One very famous ex-string theorist used to have a blog with a green colour scheme that I found to be awful and amateurish to look at; but it was his blog, his way of doing things and overall functioned OK.
