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.

Not Wanting to Miss a Post

I have eight minutes to midnight, and I need to get a post loaded for today. It has been a busy day catching up on other things now that have I finished a writing assignment for an encyclopedia. Since I don’t have much time, I will say that I have some cool posts planned for later this week that highlight some of my going-ons lately: baseball upgrades, hard drive upgrades, memory upgrades, Lego upgrades, and more upgrades. Okay, so not everything is about upgrades, but it will be fun news nonetheless. Five minutes to midnight now . . . See you tomorrow.

Site Updates, Added CV Page and Rewrote About Page

It has been long overdue, but I finally got around to rewriting the About page on dynamicsubspace.net so that it accurately reflects what I have done in the past and what I am doing now. Some of the material on the old about page was far too old and patched together. I hope that the new page creates a better narrative of how I got to be where I am now and what I have been doing along the way. I also added a new section that is specifically about the blog. You can find them on the “About” link above, or go here.

While I was making these changes, I decided to switch from a PDF version of my CV linked from the About page to a separate page that has a copy of my CV directly on the site. I think it is just as easily readable on there, and it makes it easier to find the work that I have done. You can find the CV page on the link above, or go here.
