After a year of blogging it’s time to reflect on the value of this rag, what it’s accomplished, who it’s speaking to, and what it has to say.
The answer? Beats me.
Well, I guess that’s not true. I suppose one has only to look at the most commonly used tags column on the page to get an idea; science, animation, skepticism, art, and design round out the top 5. I suppose that means that the blog is about those things, but as I’ve tried to come clean about before, there’s something nefarious at work concerning the subject matter. As a core mission, this blog aims to take mankind’s unique ability to recognize and experience beauty, and to use it as the context within which to make a key point; that a naturalistic, or skeptical, view of the world is not a vacant one.
