New year, new existential crisis January 9, 2009

I’ve been doing this blogging thing for a while now. I wasn’t sure how the experiment would turn out – but I’m actually enjoying myself on here. Which brings me to the name of my blog. I always intended to change it at some point but never got round to it. But then the folks over on Cosmic Variance came up with a whole list of cool blog names aimed to aspire to a wider audience than just wanting to read about astronomy. I wish I’d had their inspiration 6 months ago:

  • Tycho’s Nose
  • Higher Dimensional Operators
  • Extremize The Action
  • Critical Phenomena
  • The Residue Theorem
  • But No Simpler
  • De Revolutionibus
  • Smooth Tension
  • Ultra Deep Field
  • Outside the Light Cone
  • Primeval Atom
  • Left As An Exercise
  • The Error Bar

… although some of them are a bit too high-brow and poncy for me. I don’t think I’m a Higher Dimensional Operator kind of blogger….. One of their commenters suggests The Naked Singularity – not a bad name either, but I’m not sure I want to attract that kind of audience!

Maybe I should ask other people, like you who read all this stuff on here. Here are some options, what do you think?

Nearly went for the Clooney thing, but maybe its not healthy to feed your fantasies.

Absolutely right professor. I had a moment of weakness. I don’t need to be on the arm of the second-sexiest man alive to prove that I am fantastic. I will go to the Oscars alone, bring peace to the Middle East and my blog will stay what it is.
