In which Dr Aust greets a newbie (ish) to the Sceptical Blogoverse
It is always nice to welcome a new blogger to the Bad Science blogosphere – especially when the blogger is:
(i) A proper scientist (works in a lab, and that stuff)
(ii) Someone you’ve actually met
(iii) Doing a nice job of debunking the Magic Beans Shaking Water Brigade, aka the Homeopaths.
If you are wondering what this has to do with crystals, as per the title, Dave is an X-ray crystallographer (and a biochemist, but we won’t hold that against him).
“Xtal” is a sort of reduced scientists’ shorthand for “Crystal”, if you were wondering.
Anyway, Dave has moved his blog archive, which stretches back to late Autumn, over from Posterous, so do go and check it out.
