Super-blogger Scicurious is taking off the mask. Metaphorically speaking.
Her full statement is over at her Scientific American blog.
I’ve known Scicurious as an Internet friend for years now, even met her at ScienceOnline, and gone running with her, and I never knew “real” name. She was totally cool about the use of the pseudonym, politely but firmly protective of her other identity. But it’s still very nice to meet Bethany Brookshire. It feels, just a little bit, like she’s come out of … well, maybe not the closet. Some sort of smaller-than-necessary, confining space with opaque walls. Er.
Anyway: Congratulations, Bethany! It turns out that I love your work.◼
