The Deal

Been pretty quiet over here the past month or so. What's the deal? Well, this: I'm on part-time paternity leave, working on some long-term projects, and doing some real estate writing for the San Francisco Examiner (which is fun and interesting but doesn't belong on this site).

Plus in September I spent a fascinating week brushing up on the latest in ocean science -- and laying the foundation for plenty of future stories -- at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Ocean Science Journalism Fellowship in Woods Hole, MA (on Cape Cod). What an honor to be selected, and a wonderful experience to boot.

For what it's worth, I also have a few science/enviro stories and features that have been in the works for a couple months but that are due out shortly -- one on cooking and indoor air quality, one on the human health effects of environmental noise exposure, one on the engineering behind the new 49ers stadium in Santa Clara. Links will be posted here as soon as they're available. So, you know, stay tuned.
