Hi folks,

Just a quick post to say that I'm going to shut down this blog in week or so. Not for negative reasons, mostly for positive ones. Everything flows, people change, and I don't think I'm the same person I was when I started this up. Plus I'm getting a bit tired of feeling like a hypocrite. And I'm inclined to agree with Michael Crichton (State of Fear) that ignorant benevolence (my own) often has the same outcome as malevolent intent. So until I get educated, the soap box goes back in the cupboard.

I hope to keep in touch with all the people I've met in the course of this project, it's been great interacting with you.

From now on I'm going to leave politics and science to the political scientists and do what I do best.
