Welcome to Spiders are Always Watching You!

The purpose of this blog is threefold.

First, it provides somewhere for me to talk about the open-source software I produce. Sure, you want a help file, but for the educational software especially you may want to know what sorts of lessons you could use the software for and how to use it to teach particular concepts. It’s also a good place to put up update information.

Second, I plan on talking about my own research here.

Third, there are lots of things in science that interest me that simply aren’t large enough ideas to make into full-fledged research papers. (They are smaller than the Least Publishable Unit.) However, if I just spent an hour sorting through some data or reading an interesting paper there’s now a place to talk about that: here.
