I’ve recently been reading a book by John Gribbin about the possibility of life in other parts of our galaxy. The title – Alone in the Universe – makes it pretty clear what the answer is going to be, but the reasoning by which Gribbin arrives at this answer is fascinating.
On the first anniversary of this blog, it seems an appropriate moment to ask a similar question: Is there anybody out there? Of course, I know that there are people out there reading this blog because some of you have been kind enough to tell me so. However, I’m not getting much feedback, so I’m wondering whether my posts are missing their target. Are they too dull, too technical or simply addressing the wrong subjects? Or is it just that some of you are a bit apathetic? I’ve got plenty of ideas for new blog posts, but have you got any better suggestions?
So please, Dear Reader, take a moment to use the Contact Me form on this website to send me some feedback. Alternatively, you can use the Leave a Reply form at the end of each blog post. I don’t mind constructive criticism, and I’m looking forward to hearing what you have to say.
