On Friday I head off again for a couple of weeks, and blogging abilities might be spotty. I'm spending a few days visiting friends at CERN, the particle accelerator in Geneva where the World Wide Web was born, so presumably it won't be too hard to find an internet connection (although things might be hectic). After that it's off to the European Forum Alpbach, where Bob Wald and I will be giving a series of lectures on cosmology. Alpbach seems pretty far away from everything (not even a train station), and I'm guessing it's rather isolated.
So I'm very happy to introduce another guest-blogger to keep things cooking while I'm away: Lindsay Beyerstein will be piloting Preposterous while I'm galivanting around the Alps. Lindsay is the proprietess of Majikthise, one of the most stimulating and well-written blogs out there, as you will soon discover if you haven't already.
I am hoping that my willingness to choose guest-bloggers who are more entertaining than I am will be seen as an indication that I am self-confident enough to not fear being upstaged, much like John Kerry choosing John Edwards as his running mate.
