Part of the reason I’ve been so quiet over the last few months is that I’ve been working on a comic called Nested Worlds.
You might notice that you can’t get into that site. That’s because I stopped.
I didn’t try for any publicity because I wasn’t sure to begin with whether I had the willpower to keep to an update schedule. Ironically, the fact that I didn’t have any… what’s the word… readers contributed to the fact that I lost interest in it. So maybe if I’d publicised it from the start I would have enjoyed it more and kept going. Now we’ll never know.
Or maybe we will, eventually.
I’m locking the site instead of keeping the six or so strips public ’cause I might want to take another swing at it one day, or start from scratch, or come up with a different concept or something. Also, I’m not sure that the existing strips were very good. I had big, big plans for the plot, but hadn’t really gotten into the swing of it yet.
Anyway, now we’ve got a time limit on my ability to stick with a project. It’s about six weeks.1 comment
Teaching science can be a very dry matter – but it shouldn’t be. It is well-known that understanding something is easier when you can connect it with something memorable – such as a joke.
For this reason, this wiki attempts to gather links to jokes and cartoons where an understanding of science is required to get the punchline. These jokes are listed by scientific field and topic. Furthermore, the punchline is explained to aid teachers and those who wish to study these subjects by themselves.
I’m going to start prodding David Morgan-Mar until he agrees to be their patron saint.2 comments
Well, I figured that if I’m not gonna have the willpower to blog, I might as well start something else to give up on as well. (Such pessimism.)
Here it is. Comic Number One.
