This is just a sort of public service announcement. I’ve got a lot of ideas for various blog posts right now, but I’m going to try and actually exert a little self-discipline, and finish up with the Venus ISRU series before starting in on a new topic. Hopefully I can get everything squared-away before I […]

I was just looking at the sitemeter for the blog, and realized we had just passed the 500,000 views point sometime last month. I also realized that the 8th anniversary of starting Selenian Boondocks passed on the 16th of last month. While 500k views may be what some cooler blogs get in a slow week, […]

Last month, while in the middle of a technical writing project for work, I tweeted a list of a few blog posts I wanted to write sometime in the near future, and asked some friends to nag me occasionally until I actually write some of them. Since none of them have been nagging me recently, […]
I’m still in the process of recuperating from Space Access and the long drive home from Phoenix, but I wanted to give a few thoughts on this year’s conference. I’ve now been going to Space Access for a full decade (other than 2009, when Tiff was within a week of her due-date for Peter), so […]
It takes slightly crazy people to make big changes. These same people generally have tough lives. It’s a lifestyle choice. –Iain McClatchie (who runs the Ambivalent Engineer blog)
I just realized I didn’t have a link in my blogroll to the excellent EconLog blog, run by economists Arnold Kling, Bryan Caplan, and David Henderson. Like most engineers, I don’t let the lack of much economic training get in the way of good economic philosophizing/debating, but I’ve learned a lot from their takes on […]
Whenever I’m stuck in proposal writing hell, I tend to come up with all sorts of fun ideas for blog posts. But my inner adult likes reminding me “if you have the mental bandwidth to be doing creative writing, you should be getting those proposals written so you can get Altius more money, not having […]
In protest of SOPA/PIPA, I’m not going to do any other blog posts today. That is all.
I got a subtle reminder today from Will Pomerantz and Ben Brockert, that I in fact have this blog thing, and that I probably shouldn’t be using twitter for blog posts… [Of course the real reason I do stuff like that on Twitter is because my adult supervision at Altius doesn't do Twitter, which allows […]
Sorry about the lightblogging. I’ve had a long year the past two or three months… I’ll give more details on Altius-specific stuff on the ASM blog (including some eye-candy) when I get done with a Space Angels Network pitch in Palo Alto this week, and the SEDS SpaceVision 2011 conference next week, but here’s a […]
