Hey everyone, long time no blog!
It’s been a while since I’ve blogged on Fluffy Sciences. So long, in fact, that I have lived through a pandemic, gotten married, moved house, had a kid . . .
When I started FluffySciences, I was fascinated by the way a research methodology could impact the kinds of data you collected and the way you might answer your research question.
I have been lucky enough to pursue this passion and now I can make it my day-job. I consult on research methodologies across a wide range of research projects, and pursue my interests in science education as a senior lecturer.
I will always hold a space in my heart for Fluffy Sciences, for the times when I had a dedicated posting schedule thinking about science and knowledge, for the way it brought my my first book, and for being a home on the internet. But it’s not where I belong any more. The last few times the domain name has come up for renewal I’ve hesitated, and this year I finally made a space for me.
That space is jillymackay.com. It’s a new part of the internet for me, one where I can focus more on open-ness and reproducibility in research.
The internet is getting smaller. I think domains of your own are both valuable in terms of maintaining your own site, but also in terms of understanding how the internet works. It took an embarrassingly long time to set up jillymackay.com, but I’m excited about where that might take me.
I don’t know yet what will become of this blog. I think there is merit to both archival and deletion. But for now, it’s a fluffy goodbye to this site, and I hope you’ll join me in my new space
