Why and What is DynamicSubspace.net? Plus, Site Updates.

I began dynamicsubspace.net as a mac.com blog a few days after I landed in England and arrived in Liverpool in 2006 for two reasons: 1) I wanted to record my adventures in England for myself and my friends, and 2) I wanted to improve my writing and argumentation through regular practice. So, you will find a mixture of personal and professional; lighthearted and serious; World of Warcraft and politics; and Lego and science fiction. This blog has evolved over time, and I am sure that it will transform further as time passes and I, as its author, change as an individual, a professional, and a writer.

The single unifying thread that runs through all the blog posts on dynamicsubspace.net is that it is all an expression of myself or an extension of my interests. Some posts are personal reflections, other posts are critical reviews, and yet other posts are reminders or helpful messages for the science fiction community. You will many find posts related to the SFRA, because the organization and its members are very dear to me as friends and colleagues who helped guide me to where I am now.

The above writing was originally on the “About” page of dynamicsubspace.net. I have recently been expanding some of the site’s static pages to include a section on “Teaching” and a revamped “About” page. In particular, I wanted to augment my writing with images. I wanted my blog to express the same multimodality that my students are developing now. I expect to make a few more additions in the next few days, so please stay tuned.
