March for Science last April] posted my first Blob, with the intention of blogging the process of transition to a new job in The Institute. That transition must surely be complete now: I know where the t'ilets are, I can direct visitors to the Library, I know what I'm expected to teach in two weeks' time (mostly). But The Blob has acquired a life of its own, and I've written about things which have nothing to do with The Institute, or teaching or science. Although the rubric is Science Matters - because it does - I'm much more comfortable with it as The Blob. I've noted a few milestones:
- 1,000th post where I reflected on the Blob word-count compared to classics like Moby Dick and Ulysses.
- Millionth word = Zeugma
What about Islands, I do love an island: Wordclouds courtesy of wordcloud
