This is my first posting, and already I'm in trouble. The pull-down menu for "Field" belies an excruciatingly conventional taxonomy of human endeavour. If I want to deliver a critical comment on Economics, it'll have to go under "Random Thoughts". Same with Sociology, Science Fiction, ... most everything I want to talk about now that I'm retired and no longer constrained to discuss only Physics. I suppose I could just list everything as Physics, since that will always be my model for everything, but then no one would read any of it.
I sympathize with the view that none of that stuff really qualifies as Science, but then all the more reason to talk about it here if we want to stir a little reason into the melting pot of ideas, eh? I hope someone will explain to me how I'm missing the whole point of Science 2.0... :-)
PS: Where should we put our SF short stories? (Be nice, now!)
