The paying gig

What do I do when I'm not writing this blog? (Which is to say, what I have been up to for the past two months?) I've been busy writing for the Foundational Questions Institute, which sponsors cutting-edge research in theoretical physics and cosmology. Here are a couple of recent articles:

A Blackboard at Brunch Meet the researchers who are taking discoveries from condensed matter physics and applying them to the question of quantum gravity.

The Cosmic Puzzle What is dark energy, anyway? Is our cosmic bubble about to burst?

Down the Rabbit Hole Are we living in a computer simulation? Some scientists say its a statistical near-certainty.
