⇒ Retro: Scientific Computing in the Open Web Platform
It has been far too long since I've written about my research, past or present, and I need to correct that. I've been rather silent over the past year or more — life has kept me busy with other things. As such, I have a backlog of information.

As such, keeping this blog up-to-date with what is rolling around in my mind is one aspect of that.
