Website upgrade

Just a quick note to announce that I’ve upgraded my website’s structure, about five years after I launched the first version with help from my friend Momchil, director of MTS Studios. This is the second major re-design and should make the site more accessible to users on mobile devices. It also reflects the growing diversity of my reporting, rather than trying to divide everything into ‘Science’ or ‘Travel and adventure.’ Those things seem to be converging for me lately, anyway.

I’ve been covering new ground, such as the developing world (from afar, so far…any editors want to send me on my next reporting trip?) and it’s hard to avoid writing about the financial crisis in Spain.

The website also includes my Twitter updates and a section where I’ll write in my own voice (I’m told that’s called a “blog”) rather than strictly re-posting stories published elsewhere. I imported to the blog some previous entries including posts from my excavation last summer at Clunia, the Great European Roadtrip, the Malaspina oceanographic expedition, and my Nature internship. That’s why subscribers may have received an email or RSS feed earlier today with a flood of old posts. From here on out posts in this section should return to the occasional pointer to highlights of my work or special adventures.

Look forward to your thoughts on the new site!
