  1. Great project! I’ve bookmarked your site, and look forward to following your travels and responses. It’s good to locate the seeming abstractions of high-energy physics in real places, with groups of people working together in complicated ways, dealing with recalcitrant materials and continually reconstructed machines, and eventually confounding many of their original expectations. As you bring physics back into geographical and social space this summer, I hope you will also spend some time in the surrounding communities. How do the folks next door respond to the innovative science taking place around them and among them?

  5. Hi,
    It would be great if you opened a Cc:Everybody account (cceverybody.com) and give us (your readers) a way of emailing you publicly. This way the work you put into answering those emails won’t go to waste in the inbox, and we can all read about your views and opinions about the topic we send you – what do you say?

  6. Re: The person who produced the statement that this was a good internet site truly needs to get their head reviewed.
