If at first

I’ve mostly been a failure at blogging (my more serious blog is at decompressinghistory.com, and you can see that it’s been a while since anything was posted there). I think part of the reason is setting my standards for posting too high, and then getting nothing done. So while I’ll crosspost from other blogs here, I will try to post more regularly here, with excerpts from ongoing research, fun charts, and takes on new papers rather than fully-fledged big posts. The picture below is from the balcony of a hotel in Saint Louis, Senegal, on a little weekend trip up from Dakar, where I was doing archival work.
