Confession time: I'm working on a series of articles on
this theme: computationally-intensive science (essentially
everything nowadays, in a sense I elaborate) is only real

I think we should stay in touch with each other--let's hit
our audiences high *and* low! (Did anyone else play enough
US team sports to understand that trope?).
