Here’s where I talk about me – well, about my writing.
Things I’ve Written Elsewhere
I have now started writing for the Lay Science webzine. My “Stuff And Nonsense” blog is indexed on http://www.badscienceblogs.net/ and some posts are aggregated on BPSDB (the blogging on pseudoscience database).
I have submitted some posts to The 21st Floor website, which is a site that “aims to bring you the best independent scientific and sceptical news and commentary in Scotland.” First post here: Dangers of Debunking. See also this on Skeptivism. Tagged posts here.
Favourite Blog Posts on Stuff And Nonsense
Deflecting criticism: the well meaning defence; Freedom of speech – not freedom from criticism. These posts are reflections on the way people debate – and sometimes try to avoid frank discussion of the issues. And here is something on the bias blind-spot.
I’ve written about the presentation of Serotonin pills in the media; I’ve written about reports that distort: The news you didn’t read; poor reporting of research: Curry can cure cancer; and the trouble with science journalism.
On torture; Government policy. Posts about my moral objection to torture (and the evidence regarding efficacy) and the emphasis given to morality, pragmatism, and evidence in different areas of policy.
I have written a number of posts about chiropractic – these are some of the posts that deal directly with the British Chiropractic Association: Chiropractic and the BCA research page; Helping the BCA; BCA response.
