I'm Diogenes and have been posting comments recently in several population genetics and related subjects blogs I read, such as Razib's Gene Expression ; Dienekes Anthropology Blog, Davidski's Eurogenes Project and Zack's Harappa Project.
I named my blog Artemis since I believe the "Neolithic" which shaped our world for the last 10,000 years is now ending. Demeter's shackles are broken.
I'm starting my own Project playing with ADMIXTURE and other programs. I'm not a scientist (even though I work in a field related to biology), but I'll try to substantiate my thoughts whenever possible.
Just as politics and news blogs are not about bringing you 100% credible news from a specialist; this blog is just a podium for ideas and their discussion. I have many more or less substantiated ideas about several subjects. I intend only to contribute in my personal way. The indispensable and proper scientific process is best left for specialists.
But just as blogs can be less conventional and more imaginative if less credible source of news and opinions, so can a blog dedicated to other areas. I don't have academic credibility. I'm not presenting a CV or publication history. But I don't have academic constraints either. I don't need to hide controversial but interesting ideas just because they may be seen as silly by some and may harm my ability to do research in the future.
The internet is connecting intelligent people from different places and allowing discussion of ideas. That's how you make, always made, knowledge. Except now perhaps it's beginning to happen on a different scale.
