Thank you

Before I start posting, I would like to thank three bloggers. Their combined effect on me this week was to result in my starting this blog.

Greta Christina’s Blog has a posting, Greta¬ís largely unsolicited advice on blogging, that has giving me courage to jump in the blogging water. Babel’s Dawn by E.B. Bolles has convinced me that big vague questions can be tackled using a blog to create a hypothesis and critically examine it. He is doing this with the evolution of language. I have him to thank for showing me how to be a useful blogger. And, the current piece in Mind Hacks about Bayesian aspects of thought is where I intend to start with my first posting.
