Well, it’s been quite a week. My blog posts critiquing Mr. Relativity Denialist have been visited by an amazing number of people, making my blog stats look like a delta function, my postdoc advisor was in town to give a talk and plan some new research with me (as well as go out for drinks), and I officially received a book contract from a good scientific publisher, meaning that within a little over a year, I’ll probably be published!
On the other hand, I lost a credit card this week. Fortunately, I canceled it before anything bad happened. Amusingly, though, when I called the company to notify them of the loss, I first received a recorded message telling me that my limit had been raised! That was about the last thing I wanted to hear with a card on the loose…
Next week I’m going to get back to my ‘Optics basics’ posts; I’ve already written a large part of my diffraction post.
Congrats on your delta function! And, of course, on your book contract as well. Soon, you’ll be notable enough for your own Wikipedia entry!
Of course, the universe hates good weeks, so it issued a correction in the form of a rejected grant proposal today… *sigh*
I consider that a relatively minor setback, though!
