This comic adaptation of John Christopher’s Tripods trilogy was the best part of Boys’ Life magazine for me. It started coming out the month after I became a boy scout.

I got rid of my Facebook account a month ago.  I used Google+ until it was announced that they’re shutting it down.  I also had a website on math.ucr.edu, but that server recently kicked the bucket, and it’s unclear whether the content is coming back.  The wayback machine has a copy from earlier this year, so not much would be lost if it doesn’t. But given those losses, it looks like I’ll be posting here more often. 

So to celebrate, here’s a fantastic video of a zebrafish embryo growing a nervous system.
