Back in the Saddle

November 27, 2012



It’s been almost three months away from blogging and I’m happy to report that I’m now back in the saddle. It’s amazing what a house fire…and a burglary…and an injury can do to one’s writing schedule. But my house is repaired, my things are now safe, I’ve got a nifty cane, and I’m feeling crazier than an Old Prospector about getting back to work.

In the time away I’ve been thinking a lot how I might take my blogging to the next level as well as new blog posts. At a minimum, in the next 6 months you can expect to see a revamp of the website (time to make it pretty) and a return to regular posting. I’ll also be focusing much more on studying the science of fisheries enforcement and that will likely result in quite a few blogs on the topic.

Glad to be back and, as always, comments are enthusiastically encouraged.

P.S. Much thanks to DC Nightowls for helping me make the time to re-launch.

    Welcome back! Looking forward to your thoughts on fisheries enforcement. Fascinating!

    Only in DC is there a social group who meets up to work *more* at night! Kidding… sounds like a great group.

      Hah, very true. It’s a pretty interesting group, though. I was the odd-ball in that I wasn’t working (yet?) at a for-profit venture. Most were working on start-ups or developing apps for mobile devices.

    Glad you’re back to posting. As an early career (just started grad school) ecologist, I really appreciate the broader perspective I gain from your syntheses of marine conservation and management issues from social, economic, and ecological perspectives. My work may be more oriented towards basic biology and ecology of marine organisms, but like most marine scientists today, I think figuring out how to apply basic research to effective conservation strategies and to inform policy decisions is crucial. Your blog does a great job trying to bridge the disconnect between those two areas, and is incredibly helpful for someone like me who doesn’t have a much spare time as they’d like to learn about both sides. Keep up the good work, and thanks.
