OK, not really. Turns out I'm afraid of people in giant mouse suits.
But what IS happening is that this blog is moving to grist.org. Check out my blog page. Other than the host, everything else about the blog should remain the same. I hope you head over there and keep reading my stuff!
This web site will remain up, but I don't plan on posting here anymore.
[NOTE added in proof: the grist.org site requires an e-mail address to sign up. Here's a tip for those who don't want to give out their real e-mail: use the dodgeit.com e-mail avoider service. Check out their FAQ here. It's a great and free service that I use all the time.]
