Extra mural

Science in society – politics, development and social justice.

An apology…

A view across a snow covered glacier to alpine peaks behind

Aah mountains. Look at the lovely mountains. Let them caress your eyeballs with their snowy glory.

I quickly brush the dust off Extra mural to say the following:

Any of you out there who actually read this thing, valuable as the product of a toddler beating a typewriter with wooden duck as it is, I am sorry for the complete absence of any postage of late.

I hope you will tollerate this when I tell you I have been quite busy. I have been scribbling furiously for Elements, the pre-eminent science-based website in the entire of the World Wide Web.

In fact Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of aforementioned Web, said he finally feels someone has put his creation to its proper use. When pressed he said he was talking about Elements. This is now believed to have been a bid for some intellectual credibility on his part. Having spoken to individuals intimate with the situation I can report he actually was referring to Lolcats.

Alongside Elements you will find the glory that is Medical Media Watch where I and four compatriots of the Fourth Estate (James Brooks, Djuke Veldhuis and Lorna Powell) are turning over stones in the muddy forest of health journalism to see what squiggly-wiggly creepy-crawlies we can find.

Finally, for some reason best known to themselves a London-based newspaper called the Financial Times has decided to run some of my articles. I hear their circulation has not taken too substantial a hit.

Some kind of service will resume at some stage in the future. Once again we here at Extra mural apologise for the delay in writing stuff; it’s all this guy’s fault.
