Skeptical Science celebrates its 4th birthday

4 years ago on Aug 22, Skeptical Science posted its first blog post (that's right, I even missed our own birthday, only remembering a day late). The site had already been running for a while but initially only featured the database of rebuttals to climate myths (that was my original vision for the site). People had been nagging me about adding a blog (apparently all the kids were doing it) and while I tried to ignore them for as long as possible, eventually I tweaked that blogging was an opportunity to let people know about new rebuttals or updates to existing ones. So I started blogging but with no commenting (ah, the good ol' days).

While I have your attention, I might take the opportunity to mention a few SkS housekeeping details. I've added a few handy links to our top navigation bar. You'll notice the About link at the top now. If you mouseover the link, you'll also see links to a number of interesting pages.

Lastly, a bit of personal news. This week, I've started work at the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland. The position is the Fellowship for Climate Change Science Communication (bit of a mouthful, I know) and will involve research, publishing and I imagine a helluva lot of climate communication. An exciting new phase of this wild adventure!
