I thought it might be a good time to give some updates as to why there are not more anthropological writings on here so far. The tl;dr version has mostly to do with how busy I've kept myself, but good things are coming.
For a little background: when I began writing this blog in 2010, I was tracking for my Associate's Degree in Anthropology. That degree was awarded last year, and I am happy to have it. The original plan from there was to pursue a dual-Bachelor's in Astronomy and Anthropology. That may still happen, but life and finances are keeping me busy elsewhere at the moment.
To wit, I'm working full-time from home, organizing my third HONK! festival in a row (four if we count my consulting role last year), playing in a renegade marching band, hosting a radio show, and assessing which of my life goals are most important. There are other issues afoot, but this really means I stay busy and change directions a lot.
That being said, the first step was to split up my CCC into three distinct blogs. Up until last week, I was throwing all of my personal thoughts, writings, photos, playlists, and more in-depth discussions right here. Now, the playlists and my personal writings each have a new home. That frees up this space for its original intent: blog posts about the intersection of cosmos, culture, and consciousness.
At the moment, I'm tweaking my thoughts on the Drake Equation, and how we're doing it wrong. The Equation itself seems pretty sound, but our anthropocentric tendencies and our rather flawed (but understandable) cultural bias mean we're blind to its potential. That's actually going to be several blog posts, because I have a lot to say on it. I also know I'm not the first (see here, here and here for a few), so I'm having to go back and review the thoughts of others. But, I hope to roll out the first part of that soon. Fans of space exploration and human culture will want to check back for that.
Some other blogs coming up:
* Conspiracy Theories
* Conspiracy Theories
* Generalism / Anti-Specialization
* The Future of Humans in Space
* Generation Ships
* Created Folk Festivals (e.g., HONK! and its kin)
I'll also be sharing some goodies from other folks around the Web in themed posts.
I don't promise to write frequently, but I do intend to make these good reads.
