Return to the Blogosphere

Supposedly Picasso would make a mark on each canvas so he wasn’t facing a frame of white.  Consider this post the same.

As the title of this blog suggests, I’m a materials scientist.  I live and work in California, USA.  I have a day job – industrial scientist.  The evening job – adjunct professor.  I also do a bit of consulting, some volunteering, and lot reading.  My reading is almost exclusively non-fiction.  Common topics include politics, philosophy, economics, history, and religion.

My favorite movie is Pi by Darren Aronofsky.  My favorite band is the Pixies.

Politically – I’m conflicted – I’m a social liberal, fiscal conservative.  Things I lose sleep about:  The environment, the national debt, global poverty, religious fundamentalism.  Things that lift my spirits:  Hiking, friends, travel, poker, good food, a strong Malbec.
