On my way home from the 2013 ScienceOnline conference, where I gave a short talk about MathOverflow, spent a lot of time learning about open access (summary: its pretty dismal outside of mathematics), neat projects (figshare, academia.edu), met lots of awesome science journalists, and even another Emory prof (also a brewer) from my own neighborhood back in Atlanta.

I was also convinced to start a blog! (Or two.) And to tweet! More on why later.
