Hello, world.

I created this as a place to collect thoughts about three fundamental activities that define much of what we do as scholars: learn, research, communicate. I hope it will be useful to me, to my students, perhaps to my colleagues and others.

Learn
Acquire new knowledge or skills.
Research
Generate or create new knowledge or skills.
Communicate
Transfer knowledge or skills to others.

There are broad areas of scholarly life excluded: fundraising and administration leap to mind. But those aren't really scholarship are they? Teaching I do include, in communication.

I got the idea to start collecting my notes on these topics in a blog while reading a physics blog, Uncertain Principles.
