My Journal:

I write about any number of things. Day-to-day life and commentary on the day's news. My thoughts about politics, economics, technology, and science. My ideas and hopes for social justice and scientific progress. Ramblings about what I'm currently reading or writing. Or anything else I feel like writing about on a given day.

Most of my entries are public. Occasionally, I'll put an entry on a specific filter when I know it will only be relevant to certain people or I'll mark an entry friends-only. These instances are rare. I prefer to let my readers decide for themselves what they find interesting rather than use filters and permissions excessively.

Feel free to comment on anything, but please be respectful of others. It is OK to disagree (either with me or with someone else commenting) but please refrain from making personal attacks--discuss the ideas, not the person. Also, please keep in mind that anonymous commenting is intended as a convenience for those without a LJ account, not as something to hide behind. If you comment anonymously, please say who you are. If you don't, I reserve the right to delete anonymous comments at my discretion.

If I've added you and you don't know me, its probably because I saw something in your journal that we have in common or that I found interesting. You're welcome to add me back if you wish, but I don't expect it. If you do add me, feel free to comment and say hello--I don't bite. Sometimes I do have very busy weeks so please don't be offended if you add me and I don't notice right away.

Older Journals

This journal is relatively new. However, I have been on Livejournal since 2002, first as sleepyaardvark and later (2007-2008) as idealistagain. Info on those profiles, however, is considerably out of date, since I only keep them as an archive of older entries.
