I've felt particularly bad about that, because a recent link to this blog on Michael Nielsen's page has generated an astonishing amount of traffic, at least by the modest standards of this blog. I have the idea that lots of people that I know are dropping by for the first time, and I wish I had plenty of new stuff to show off. (Welcome, friends!)
Some of you who know me mostly via quantum information science may be disappointed to discover that there is relatively little quantum physics on this blog. Instead, there is an awful lot of politics and theology and whatnot, subjects about which you may find my opinions less interesting! I do post on scientific subjects that amuse me, but for the present I'm not planning on doing any serious blogging about quantum mechanics or the physics of information. Sorry about that.
In lieu of some witty new blogging, I've dusted off an old science fiction story of mine, which I've put in the post immediately below this one. Enjoy. If you've arrived for the first time, I hope you come back now and then.
