At first glance I thought "these can't be sand, they are too beautiful!" but wow things could look completely different once we start seeing pass the skin deep. =)

Wonderful caricatures by Gareth Southwell. Russell is my favourite.

I think this is my first G+ post. Anyway, just finished a commission of Sartre. Pencil on art board. Zu, you're up next!

Anyone interested in something, please contact me for info.

A news story about the new(-ish) paper on the possibility that the fine-structure constant (a dimensionless ratio involving the electron charge, the speed of light, and Planck's constant) is not only changing in time, but changing is different ways in different parts of the universe.

This is notable not just because it would be a big deal if true, but because it quotes me saying skeptical things about the measurement (along with people who actually know a lot about astronomy...). Sadly, it gets the name of my employer wrong, but I emailed the author, so it might get fixed. And anyway, they spelled my name right...

So when you look at a profile and it tells you how many people you have in common... is that people who have the profile owner in their circles... or people that you and the profile owner both have in your circles?

Hi, the Anna Freud Centre - nice place to be working. I haven't heard of anything yet but term hasn't properly started yet so I'm sure I'll hear more about the lectures in the coming weeks.
