I’ve been writing about science and technology–life science and information technology–for four decades, mostly as the top editor of leading publications. During that time I’ve learned some things, some of which are still relevant (like how to take better photos than the one above, shot at the Kennedy Spaceflight Center on April 11, 1981, the day before STS-1 Columbia went into space for the first time).

So I love learning new stuff, and explaining it to folks who anyone who is interested…or can’t move fast enough to get away.
