Adventures in science journalism

 

Writing articles in the science section of The Economist for as long as I have has definitely done something to my brain. For example, using contractions in my writing now requires an active force of will. Worse, I get this sharp pain in my gut every time I use metaphors, sarcasm or the first person.* On the plus side, every week feels like a new journey exploring the horizons of science and sharing those adventures is really what this website is all about. That and my desire to be a bit more irreverent than my editors would otherwise allow. By all means, enjoy.
