Recently I've been working as a staff writer at Life's Little Mysteries, a website that explains the science behind the news and life in general. It's kind of a cool site, which has allowed me to research and write about everything from how stealth planes work to how the Egyptian government actually managed to turn off the Internet two weeks ago. After the mob bust that happened recently, I wrote about whether or to what extent the mob still runs New York, and I wrote a piece about men, women, and kissing for Valentine's Day.
Whenever a cool video goes viral on Youtube, like this video of a gorilla in a British zoo walking upright like a human, we find experts to explain the science behind them. Check out the site, and if you have an interesting question for us to answer, please send me an email!
I've also done some freelance writing at Popular Science Magazine and PopSci.com in the past few months. I wrote a long feature on the Pioneer Anomaly (which, as you may recall, I wrote about here first), and another short piece on the evolutionary purpose of tickling. I'm working on a new piece for them on gravity research that should be out soon.
Not much time for Facto Diem these days, but at the very least I will be better about updating the site with links to my articles published elsewhere.
