Well, a lot of you may read this site via an RSS feed so you might not have noticed that I now have advertisements in the sidebar. It’s just a Google Adsense panel, so nothing you haven’t seen before if you’ve been using the web in, oh, the past few years. Now, just in case you didn’t know how Adsense works, it basically matches keywords on this site to keywords Google’s advertising clients provide them with their ads. I have nothing to do with the content of these ads, for good or bad.
For those of you who have seen them, you may have noticed a few anti-science ads for free books or Rush Limbaugh (like the one that claims “Global Warming is a Lie”). I can have ads from those sites blacklisted on a site-by-site basis and will certainly do so, but it is inevitable that some ads will pop up that will seem to be out of place or against me or the spirit of what I write about. You are encouraged to let me know (e‑mail is best; jason at this domain) as this happens. The corrections should take place in a matter of hours.
In addition to marginally interesting Google ads, you may have also missed the fact that I’m selling t‑shirts1 over in the sidebar as well. The design is my own, if you’ll allow me the liberal use of the word design. It’s far from the crappiest t‑shirt I’ve seen sold and it’s made by Spreadshirts, who do very nice work. Do check it out.
Lastly, in one final plea for you money and attention, I’ve got a link over there for our baby registry which is all set up on this site. If you are interested and have any questions, just let me know. You all know that you are not obligated to do anything for us, but if it is something you want to do, it’s a great place to get some ideas or do your shopping. We also welcome suggestions (which we promise not to scoff at and ignore immediately).
- I recently received my own shirt and I’ll model it as soon as I get around to doing so. [↩]
