Journalism takes too much time.

Obviously I do have blog, here it is, but it's nothing like the news blog I happily worked on during my sophomore year. Ah, heady times, every day hunting down the science and ecology articles in the Wall Street Journal and anywhere else I respected, which I think restricted me to the BBC and occasional forays into the New York Times. That was a whole 6 years ago, there wasn't quite the same proliferation of high quality blogs. Plus I was a sheltered undergrad with a slow internet connection, also a major crimper of cyber-awareness. Now I am a sheltered grad, finally aware that simply summarizing issues (I had fantastic summaries though!) does not count as good journalism, unless you put a lot of time into reading point-source papers and thinking original thoughts about them. Also, you have to think of a good hook to start out with, construct a nice flow-of-ideas and finish off with a stunningly insightful and memorable ending. None of which I'm going to do here.

This is why I don't have a blog.
