@actualham Simon Winchester is one of my favorite travel and science writers and covers many of those bases. He's also excellent at providing structure for things that aren't necessarily linear. Given your location his Atlantic could be very interesting.

@RheeMor Reminds me of an awesome science project I saw a few years ago:

Wishing I could typeset math fast enough to livetweet math/science lectures. What's the secret @fgrosshans?

At one point, for several years I had a particular destiny and singular focus, and things seemed great. It took several years after having and then losing(?)/moving on from that focus to figure out what to do next. I can currently relate to not only your general thoughts about wanting to do everything, but even specifically to many of them including math, physics, publishing, ancient languages, computer science, philosophy, etc. The tough part is that I always feel like the "job" I want to have hasn't been invented yet. It's taken a while, but it sure seems fun searching for it now that I've embraced the search. If you do ever figure things out and the "company" has another opening, do let me know...

@emcconover Don't publishers say they charge subscription fees because they're improving their websites to improve science communication?

 
 
 

@lmillernpr If @biolojical can share the science of biology through emojis, then really, anything is possible!

 

I'm curious if you have a favorite bread/baking text? I've been meaning to do more breads this year myself, but haven't had the time to research some good/technical texts. I suspect you may have all the heavy science ones on your shelf that I would be likely to purchase and could save me some time with recommendations.
